Normally this does not bother me, but recently I had an experience that really scared me. I think I may have mentioned that I am allergic to most medications and only have a very few that I can take. Some I am flat out allergic too and others have side effects that really mess me up. Well I had a allergic reaction to Prednisone. I took Benadryl, and thought I was getting better, but I was not. So long story short I went to ER for help. Right away the ER doc said you can not be allergic to that for that is what we treat patients with allergic reactions with. I told him I had had really bad case of hives after taking it and knew that was what I had reaction from. But still doc argued with me. I normally have very low blood pressure readings but had 167/88 when I went in, and after treatment with IV Benadryl, blood pressure dropped to 115/60 ah, normal again. However, since doc had not check my medical history they thought I was going into shock and produced an epi pen. Well this was a bad idea, as my blood pressure went from 115/60 very quickly to 195/88. My heart rate went from 50 to 131. For the next 8 minutes I could not breathe right and heart was jumping in chest and right arm was shaking and jerking up and down. Was later told I was lucky I did not have stroke. Week later back in ER with severe chest pain (computers down) treated for a condition I had had before. And following that developed Shingles. Thankfully this is all behind me now but now I have a new found phobia about ER doctors who don't check medical histories or decide the patient knows nothing or better yet treat me for something I have had in the past because ER computer server is not working. Has this ever happened to you? share your story with me so I won't feel so alone.
