Virus or what?
Dec 29, 2003
Hi everyone! I have been so sick for the past few days. I don't know if it was a virus or just another symptom of whatever is going on with my body. I woke up Friday morning with a sour stomach. Didn't think much about it because I've woke up with one before but the next day it would be gone. Anyway, as the day went on it got worse. By 6:00 that evening I had the worst stomach pain I was literally screaming and crying. It wasn't cramping or nauseated it was just an awful pain. I've never had that kind of pain before in my stomach. I began shaking and was buring up but also had a cold sweat, but no fever. Husband took my blood pressure and it was 110/63, which mine usually runs 100 or 90/60 or 70. But it did fall in the normal range so no concern. Finally it eased up for a minute and then started right back, so my husband took me to the er because he said I was a greenish/yellowish color and that concerned him. I didn't want to go but figured I needed fluids before I dehydrated. The pain wouldn't ease up. I've had my gallbladder removed so I knew it wasn't that. They started the iv, took blood, etc. Everything came ok except my sugar level was high and it has never been high. I don't know how high it was, my husband talked to the dr because I was too out of it to hold a conversation. Anyway, after the gave me a bag of fluids they sent me home. The next day it hurt just a little for an hour or so but I was so drained. I was so weak and dizzy I could barely get off of the couch. Finally this morning I am about half better. So I'm not for sure if this was a stomach virus or what but whatever it was it drained me and it hurt very badly. If it was a virus I just want to warn you all about it but if it wasn't a virus does anyone have any ideas on what it could have been?
