BREATHE!!! Yup I am sitting here watching my son breathe, I can't stop bc I am just being a crazy mom!
We were at my DD's Fall Festival today, took my son w/us (he's 13) to help out (I am VP of our PTA). I hardly saw him the entire time, he was working the football game & hanging w/his friends.
We had a 30/45min left of the Festival plus clean up when he came to me saying he didn't feel well & HAD to go home. He looked warm but it was hot in the school so I had him sit down & drink some water. I started cleaning up a table & looked over at him & he had his hand on his chest by his heart. I went over to him & pulled out my pulse/oxygen monitor & his heart rate was all the to 140 and he had been sitting for at least 5min by then maybe 10. I had him take some deep breaths & drink a bit more water, dabbed him w/a cool rag but his heart rate was NOT coming down!
I found my DH & our DD, my neighbor ended up keeping my DD & we rushed to the ER.
Thankfully they got him in right away (though I tell ya still seemed like forever to getting him in), EKG right away. Nurse took it straight to Dr, he came in & said other than a fast heart rate nothing seemed abnormal or life threatening.
So they did blood work, urine & chest xray plus gave him IV fluids in case of dehydration. They also shortly later gave him some meds for his stomach as he said his stomach had hurt during the day periodically & that it seemed to travel up & his chest & throat burned. So they gave him something in case of reflux. Not sure how reflux can mess w/your heart though :(
The fluids seemed to start helping but still seemed FOREVER for his heart to even get belong 110 & stay below a 100.
All test came back normal so the Dr said more than likely it was dehydration, but how does that make you feel chest pressure? Dr also said there is a stomach bug going around & he could have it. How does that mess w/your heart?
So now I am sitting here & I can't stop worrying & checking to make sure he is breathing! Am I crazy?
