My ER Nightmare
1 of 2
I am so sorry to hear your story about the woman who was refused treatment at the hospital. It just broke my heart when you reported it earlier this week I don't think it ER nightmares only happen in poor areas it happens everywhere! I have a similar story but I luckily I made it out alive. I recently had a baby and was constantly sick after he was born. I did not know what was happening to me? I went to my local doctor, she diagnosed me as having
Post Pardom Depression???
I felt fatigue, tired, in pain and could not hold my child at all? I... I ended up being constantly sick and had panics where all I did was cry for hours in agony to the point where I threw up!!! It was horrible, I even saw a therapist and she told me that the next time I have a panic go to the ER because it could be something else?? So, there I was dragging myself to the ER. This hospital was supposed to be a very good hospital??? Yeah right? I was there in the ER sick to death vomiting like crazy in the room and no body took notice and ignored me for a while until I screamed for them to help me! I was in agony with my husband and newborn trying to get help or something! ! Finally , they decided to help me! They only took care of me because I was screaming to death. They gave me anti Nausea medication and told me that I was just having a panic attack?? I was throwing up
The doctor who assisted me was young and wanted me out of there, they only checked my vital signs and that's it! They did not bother to do any additional test on me and
told me to go home!!!!
..that I was just depressed!!!! So I went home thinking that I was really #### and being sick a few hours more at home
A few days later I went back to my therapist and I told her that I wanted to die!! I could not handle life anymore and I felt like my son didn't need a crazy mom like me! I felt so bad because I wasn't a good mom to begin with. I just told the therapist that the next time I have a panic
I was going to get on the roof top of my two story house and jump off of it!!!
I was ####!!! From then on the therapist told me that I was a danger to myself and my child and she made me go back to the ER and told me I needed to go to a psych ward! Unfortunately my doctors could not pin point my condition, luckily I was at a different ER hospital this time and not the original hospital I went to. The second hospital I went to was not as reputable as the first hospital too, . ....Once I was in the ER they actually took a
and I spoke to a therapist and they were ready to release me and have me attend group counselling sessions at another psych hospital. I was still in agony when they were ready to release me and just then the actual medical doctor in the ER who was a lot older and experienced told me that based on the blood test he took my liver enzymes were low and they wanted to run a few tests....Yes! I was finally medically admitted after all this time and I got proper care so after they did an ultrasound, x-rays, and a kat scan
they finally figured out what the hell was wrong with me!!!
I had Pancreatitus, low liver enzymes and needed my gal bladder taken out!!! It could have been that simple. But no I ended up staying in the hospital for six days!!! If I had gone to the Original ER and if they would have run some test, I would not have ended up in the hospital for nearly a week!!!
Helllo! I think hospitals need to be more attentive to their patients!
Soooo, needless to say I am almost fully recovered! I did have a bit of depression, but the moral of the story is that I should have demanded more medical test and if I had a
to begin with I would not have gone through all the pain and hell I went through! I have lost faith in the medical community...It's all been a huge nightmare and I am so upset and can't take back the first three months of my son's young life! I felt like I lost out and wasn't a good mother to my son all because I was misdiagnosed!!! So, what's the moral of the story??? If you feel like there's something wrong with you, if you have a stomachache, backache or anything
!! Always demand at least a blood test especially in the ER cuz they can tell a lot from it. I know most ERs are understaffed, but I think I could have died if I didn't get any help?.....I was also missdianoed too!
My friend's, friend's mom died of cancer because she was misdiagnosed and nobody bothered to run tests on her for months and when they finally took a blood test and ran a few labs it was too late the cancer spread and she died.
..Doctors just assume people have a condition by what the patients tell them and they get things wrong!!!.... Be well and always, always question your

I worked with a girl years ago that had a really bad headache. They threw her out of the ER stating they "did not treat headaches". I forget if they threw her out once or twice, but by the time her husband carried her in again and she was crying and begging for help, it was too late and she died right in the ER. She was one of the nicest people I've ever met.
