Now, don't freak out, but...I spent a goodly portion of yesterday evening in the ER.
I pretty much had every symptom for a woman's heart attack (sudden sweating, weakness, nausea, lightheadedness, racing heart). Granted, it might have been a few other things, but given my medical history, and some commands from my cardiologist's nurse, I thought it best to just walk across the street to the ER, Hubby in tow.
So yeah, it wasn't a heart attack. Or hyperglycemia. Or hypoglycemia. Or dehydration. Or low blood oxygen levels. Or pregnancy. [Edit to add: Also, I'm not anemic. I forgot they checked for that, too.] "Have you been under a lot of stress?" Let's see... start of semester is stressful for my job. Hubby's job has been stressful for a while. Hubby getting treated so badly in our department adds to my stress and makes me angry. So, ok, things could be construed as stressful.
Hello, Panic Attack, my new friend. Hubby might think I was just jealous of when he went to the ER a few months back for not-a-heart-attack. Unlike Hubby, however, I am going to go to La Doctora and demand some serious drugs. I have no problem living in a fog for a bit while things settle down.

Oog, that sucks! Hope everything works out.
Hope you are feeling better now. You should beat that stress out on a set of drums.
eek! glad you are (reasonably) okay!
I'm fine. Mostly embarrassed. But I'm looking forward to my pharmaceutical possibilities! Anyone have any favorites?
Be careful about ye olde benzos. They can be addictive! It's not fun to detox someone off of them! I'd recommend klonopin, however. It's long-acting.
I had klonopin once (generic version, not that it matters too much) and I didn't like it. It made me feel... gritty. Like my joints were gritty. It was quite unpleasant. :(
hmm. maybe ativan. or an ssri (paxil is especially good for panic issues. and i equate the generic version with the name brand.)
