I don’t know what’s wrong with me, physically that is. I stood up to go get hot water for my tea and felt extremely dizzy and started seeing black spots. My ears felt like they needed to pop and a headache with nausea began.
If I was home I’d run to the Doc’s office but I’m at work. I cannot just say something is wrong and take off. I’ll go after work this afternoon.
But what’s worst? Not knowing what’s wrong or knowing?
UPDATE: (8:40am – Jan. 20, 2010)
Called tele-health last night after not feeling well for over 6 hours. They don’t give you a diagnosis, however make recommendations to seek medical attention. I was asked to seek medical attention within the next 4 hours. So, I asked, “Can you give me any hint to what this could be? Is it a tumor? Or a diabetes sign?” He replied, “I’m sorry, I’m not legally allowed to give hints or diagnose an illness. However, I will tell you that I didn’t suggest you seek medical attention within the next 24 hours or a few days, I”m suggesting you seek attention within the next 4 hours. You can see seriousness of the situation. Although, I’m not suggesting you need to call an ambulance either. Do you understand?” I did! It’s serious just not dier.
However, at 8 o’clock in the evening, there aren’t any doctor’s offices open. I could’ve go to the emerge or an after hours clinic. But my head hurts, I’m dizzy, nauseuous and cannot drive. Vie is in class. So, I decided if the next morning I wasn’t feeling better, I’d take off from work and go “seek medical help”.
This morning, the heaviness is still slightly pressing down on my temple but the nausea and dizziness is gone. So, I decided to come to work. I know I probably should have gone to the doctor’s first but maybe it can wait until after work. My physician is on vacation anyway, so I’ve gotta spend my lunch calling walk-in medical facilities and try to make an appointment.
I’ve gotta get back to work now. But I’ll keep this thread updated with what and how the doctor’s visit was.
