Yes ladies and gentleman, I am NOT just fat and depressed, that's right, Oh, I AM actually sick, pretty darned sick at that!!
When I saw the dr last Friday am, she sent me directly to the cardiologist who sent me directly to the hospital, do not pass go, do not stop home for clean panties!!!!
My heart rate, resting, was over 150, my blood pressure had fallen from the 170's/90's to under 100/50! They admitted me, starting testing, reran the chest cat scan and found that I had a ton of lymph nodes growing all over my lungs. Ok, lets now do an abdominal cat scan and gee, guess what, more funny growths in the abdomen and groin area.
They did a biopsy, under general anesthetic. cut me just above my adams apple, went fishing and brought out a bunch of samples of what I am growing. Off to the lab with my tissue and we want until Tuesday now for the exact answer. However, the drs said it looked like sarcoidosis and I have all the right symptoms, down to the eye problems, the racing heart, the dry cough, the list goes on.
I am back at my office today despite pleas from the drs not to, I need my job! I feel like a mac truck ran me over. My heart rate is still extremely high and any movement sends it soaring even more. My face and neck are still swollen from the biopsy. I am hoping to get those results tomorrow. Both options are crappy and I really would like an option C here but if its the sarcoid, than it may be the answer as to why I have been feeling so bad for so long!
