So I ended up taking myself to the ER after my lightheaded feeling became constant this past Monday. I was at work in an all day meeting ( yikes) when I started to feel worse like I might faint..my heart started racing, my chest started hurting.I panicked, left the meeting and somehow drove myself to the hospital. I tell the nurse about my condition and that I'm either anemic and my bone marrow is failing, I'm having a stroke , embolism, or a heart attack. EKG is normal, bloodwork is negative for heart attack/clotting episodes, electrolytes good, all blood counts are normal except my dumb platelets. Only 625..no different from 4 weeks ago. I was released with a script for Xanax. I forgot to take my baby aspirin that night and the next morning the lightheaded feeling was gone. I haven't taken aspirin since Monday and no more dizzy spells.The dizzy spells seem to have started after I started the aspirin regimen. I feel silly for ending up in the ER but honestly thought it was the end for me. Has anyone else had this reaction to aspirin? I will call hematologist next week and see if he thinks I should take another blood thinner or only take every other day or something..
