I'm so pissed. I went in to the ER this morning because my left arm that I broke is still bothering me, as well as my shoulder.
They rushed me in and wanted to do an EKG, because it's my left arm. I told them NOOOO....I'm not having heart problems, I need my arm looked at again. They told me they were worried because my pulse rate was too high. I tell them no I don't have insurance and I'm honestly stressing, but they did a shit load of tests anyways. They even made me have a chest xray for pneumonia and I have no symptoms!
Of course I was stressed; that's why my pressure and rate was up. He just told me he suspected I have MS (no freakin symptoms of it either), and needed to test for it. Of course I was stressed....I had a 5 year old with me that a nurse had given a can of coke to and chocolate. She was crazy wired because she has a sugar sensativity. Plus, I was in pain!!!
So, 3000 bucks later and here I am....with low potassium, arm still not looked at and blood pressure meds. Oh, and I don't have heart problems, or pneumonia, or MS or thryoid problems, or any of the other 12 tests they did to me!!!!!
Since when can you NOT refuse medical tests???? Ughhhhh.
