No prizes for guessing where I am

Hey Everyone

Unfortunately I'm back in hospital, after my 111 call on Monday night, feeling relieved that I just had a big of some sort. I stayed in bed all day Tuesday as I still felt sick. Yesterday evening I was sick again and this times I brought up blood and I was very breathless so we called 999. After a 5 hour wait in A&E this "cold" is a chest infections and we believe that the blood was from my coughing so much, but am having a few tests done today, as my BP is sky high again.

I’m sorry to hear about your chest infection. Might be related to that high temperature and cold you had before you were discharged last week. So glad you’re in the hospital getting it looked at. Fingers crossed it’s just a chest infection and nothing else to worry about!

I’ve previously had a chest infection where I was coughing persistently and it led me to bursting the blood vessels in my throat, causing me to bring blood up.

Hopefully some antibiotics will clear it up. Good luck x

Is the chest infection causing the sickness?

I didn't realise you were coughing as well as feeling sick. I have had pleurisy borderline pneumonia and coughed so badly I popped a rib. This was many years ago and I managed to get home to my mother and every time I dragged myself upstairs to the toilet I was throwing up due to the exertion.

This was a long time prior to my heart problems.

If you are anywhere near as bad as I was I sympathise, luckily I was 'on the turn' so the GP didn't refer me to the hospital.

I had what I thought was a cold which came on after I had my stent and I've been coughing so much it's making me sick and I've been having really bad acid reflux. Pneumonia has been mentioned but I'm sure the doctor said chest infection.

I hope they're giving you block booking discount, or at least a loyalty card!

On the plus side, it's an infection not heart this time - which must have been going round & round in your head the past couple of days.

Just think how great life will feel when you get past this patch, spring has finally sprung, and you can start building back :)

I think next time they are rolling out the red carpet for me being a VIP repeat visitor 😜

I've had a bit of acid reflux and I had breathlessness and ingestion before my HA the other week. So yes it has been in my head.

Honestly, after what you've been through lately, if you stubbed your toe you'd be more than justified in thinking "is it my heart????"

But no, it isn't. Just a touch of pleurisy, diphtheria, dengue fever or whatever. Whoever thought those would make it onto the "good news" list? 🎈🎈🎈

Tbh the stubbed toe would be blamed on my ADHD and dyspraxia. I tell you I'm a walking disaster!!

Oi! Stop milking it 😉🙃Seriously though, have you recently kicked a black cat whilst walking under a ladder, stepping on the cracks in the pavement and dropping a mirror?

You have been in the wars, take care and all the best for getting better.

I think I've definitely walked under a ladder and broke a mirror 🤣

I'm beginning to think I live in this place.
