My Trip to the Hospital...

So, it appears I may have issues with Allegra-D. I feel like I've been running a marthon for a day and a half. My pulse has been steady over 100 since last night.

At work today I finally felt too bad and walked across the parking lot to the walk-in clinic I go to. An EKG later, they told me to pack myself off to the ER. On the plus side, since it was heart related there was no sitting in the ER waiting room. I was laid on a bed 15 minutes after I got there. Gotta find the silver lining somehow.

So they stuck me, drew blood, hooked me up to this and that and then I waited ever so patiently for all the lab results to come back. Several hours later...

All my results came back in the clear which is why they are leaning toward the medicine reaction. But they still want me to set up to wear a 24-hour heart monitor dealie to see if there is anything to see and get some kind of heart picture thingy done... woo and hoo...

To top it off, I now have my roomie's cold.

Grr... Arrgh...

PS: Gotta love that new DVR I have. *hugs DVR*

Ick that sounds like you had a craptastic day!! *hugs*

I acquired a cold from wonderful Bermuda cruise. Apparently cruises are breeding grounds for disease, who know?

Allegra-D? I hate that stuff. I had a similiar, though much less scary reaction to it. I couldn't swallow pills at the time I was subscribed it. I called the pharmacist and asked if I could crush it and was told yes. Well apparently that is a dumb idea because it was a time-release pill and when I crushed it I released it all upon myself at one time. Great. My heart was racing. I was jittery and my hands were shaking. Not good. Fortunately I only took half of the pill, otherwise I might have had the same kinda experience that you did.

So, besides having to have your heart examined and acquiring a cold, what else is new? *snicker*
