3. Heart Struggling – ER – July 2012
17th July 2012
On Sunday morning I had a heart arrhythmia of some sort. I was jolted suddenly by a spasm in the chest and heart started racing at least 200bpm+. I was blacking out, covered in sweat and convulsing uncontrollably. I don’t even know how I managed to call 000. They didn’t catch it on their tests in there as it had settled, so was sent home.
I had SVT many years ago, which was fixed up. They suspect that could be back. But im not sure it might be more to do with my cellular energy which seems to be really struggling (Mitochondria/ATP). It’s also to do with a large virus i’ve had (my recurring one).
I was back in hospital again last night, because my body keeps dropping out. That’s 3 days of exhausting trips back & forward to ER. Not only that but I’ve had to contest with staff half the time who have no idea about my conditions or their severity.
My energy seems to be literally failing. Problem is they can’t “see” your energy failing at the cellular level (as in severe CFS), and one gets sent home again. Just sent round in circles. I don’t know what this world is coming to when someone obviously needs such desparate help and gets nothing.
My muscles are all stiffening up and I often can barely use them. Muscles need plenty of ATP energy to even work at all.
I feel like I just get sent home to die, as many other severe cfs patients do. I wish I knew where to go as my own treatments I’ve been on for years which helped greatly, are barely doing a thing any more, and when/if they do work they take twice as long.
I need help..
This preview explains how we often get treated, it’s so very wrong. We need understanding. A couple of the people in this documentary are already dead, younger than me, beacuse there is no support or treatment for us, yet it is one of the worst most disabling conditions on earth. I do not want to be another statistic.
