Yesterday, Boyfie rushed me to the emergency room of St. Lukes Medical Center in BGC. I didn't expect that I will come to that point where I needed to ask boyfie to bring me to the hospital, I have a high tolerance for pain but yesterday was a different story.
Flashback to earlier time, I was just feeling great coming back to work and attended a whole day training. Lunch time, we ordered chicken barbeque with java rice from Aristocrat. Afterlunch, manong Ariel who was then seated on the table behind me noticed that I had some red marks below my nape, I felt nothing on that time so I just said it will be gone in no time. Few minutes later, I felt hot on my skin and Kate who was seated beside me saw I was having some red marks in my shoulders and in my arms. That was when I decided to take anti-histamine. I always have Celestamine in my wallet so everytime I got an allergic reaction, I'm always ready.
I was expecting that I will feel sleepy after taking the med and the allergic reaction will vanish eventually. But something unexpected happened. I got dizzy but I ignored it so I continued with the training. During the hands-on we were exposed to different chemicals used to sample in the equipment and the dizziness elevated.
I asked boyfie to just pick me up in the office because I already felt very light headed. After that, the veins in my nape got suddenly very stiff, I felt it's going to break soon. Natakot na ako so I asked boyfie to bring me to the hospital immediately.
My BP shoot up to 153/108, the doctor said it is because of the pain why my BP elevated. To relax my muscle in my nape they gave me medication thru IV. It was so painful compared to my previous IV experiences, I can really feel the medication running in my veins.
Finally, I was released at 2am without any serious findings but will continue to take some medication for a week. I will then be cautious in my food intake and will try other anti-histamine brand. I need to really take good care of myself, ikakasal pa ako noh. :)
Need to go back to healthy lifestyle soon...
