Update... Sorry it's long... After almost 8 hours in the ER having sensory overload the entire time and bursting into tears randomly, I have been discharged. No sign of heart problems but sinus tachycardia the whole time. Ask my psych doctor about Xanax. πŸ˜‘ They did give me a cardio referral and said maybe see about a 30 day monitor. They think the back pain is a coincidence and not related to the tachycardia. Normal chronic musculoskeletal pain, take Advil but only if I can keep some food down first. So I will now hang out on my heating pad and try to get some food in me so I can take some meds. Those chairs are torture and all I wanted was to find a place in the waiting room to curl in a ball on the floor because my pain got worse and worse the longer I had to sit in a chair like a "normal" person. When they finally did take me back to a room (to wait some more) that is exactly how they found me when they came back, folded up cross legged on the floor wrapped in the pile of blankets I accumulated while I was there. (Naughty, I know, but it was the only way I could lessen the pain and with the stress of the day it honestly felt necessary to be a pretzel for a while) πŸ₯¨ So, has to be some sort of flare or be triggered by something I just am not aware of yet. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Not having any kind of diagnosis to point to when things go especially wrong is so stressful. My doctor's office called while I was there and they were like "Are you in the ER right now?" Yup. "For the tachycardia and pain you messaged us about this morning?" Yup. So I'm to call them tomorrow and follow up. Also have to call to set up with the cardiologist. No real answers but at least they have put my mind at ease that I'm not having a heart attack right now despite all the symptoms. πŸ™ˆ Thank you all for chatting with me a bit while I was there. Having all of you to talk to who understand makes things a little easier.
