Monday, diagnosed with chest infection. Told to start antibiotics 2days later. (Done) Tuesday, general feeling of being unwell. Fatigued, lack of sleep, more mucus. Chest pain that concerned my hubby that much, he rang the urgent care team who sent a ambulance. All stats done, where normal. SOB was terrible. My blood sugar level, however was really low at 2.7. I'm not a diabetic by the way. They made me feel as if nothing was wrong with me. All the while I could not answer their questions because of Sob. I decided in the end, not to go to a&e, as I did not want to waste mine or their time. Overnight the chest pain is still there, 2.5hrs of sleep. SOB, a little better this morning, all meds taken. Did I do the right thing. Is this the way it's going to be in the future. Should I be concerned about blood sugar levels. Lots of questions I know, sorry, but I feel lost and alone, I m used to controlling all aspects of my life, and now find myself in a position of not been able to controlling my symptoms.
