@  Notorious Kelly : (26 August 2014 - 03:12 PM) Ebenefits Is Not A Thermometer In The Rectum Of Your Claim; It Is A Post-It Note That May Or Not Be Updated Or Accurate. Try Not To Obsess ;)

@  coriemboh : (25 August 2014 - 08:57 PM) The Average Processing Time Is 9 Months More Or Less. Every Time I Call The 800#, I Get A Different Answer. Goe, Roe....make Up Your Mind!

@  GlassRose1500 : (25 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) @coriemboh - Do You Have A Service Rep You Can Call? They Usually Have More Info...
@  coriemboh : (25 August 2014 - 11:16 AM) Called The 800 # To Check Status Of Claim. Really Frustrated With The Lack Of Information.

Today And Earlier Tonight I Thought I Was Going Back To The Va Hospital Emergency Room

Posted by retiredat44 , 12 May 2012 · 1214 views

today and earlier tonight I thought I was going back to the VA hospital emergency room. Besides feeling weak, I felt much more disortientated, dizzy, my vision felt like it was going to go blurry, I woreed my blood pressure was possibly dropping to much,, (I do have a history and thrombosis of the splenic vein, which goes to the heart.. by the pancreas and liver and spleen, along with necrotizing pancreas disease)..

I felt like I was very nauseated, weak, numb, vision felt like it was going to lights out, and I was not going to be talking,, I only went out of the room for a drink, all day, oh, I walked to the mailbox much earlier today, just out the driveway... I thought not, again, I refuse to go by ambulance, but I was thinking if no one sees me go down I am done for,,, luckily, after a couple more hours and laying down, I felt better... I took my blood pressure and it was ok...

I dodged the bog one,, but see more symptoms of problems.. I was scared out of my mind !.. I never want to go back and go through all the things I have been through...

It was terrifying,,, I am stil scared but relieved that I feel a bit better.... but the morphine offers a sense of false security too...
in any case... I go back to a few more appointnments for some stuff in the coming weeks... but I guess I will wait until I see my primary care doctor for questions about tonights' weirdness... not sure if the neuro clinic appointment will show anything about this episode, not the eye clinic appoinment for glaucoma stuff...

also the claim stuff I hope wil get a shot in the arm by my Congressman's inquiry in the coming weeks...
