No they don't. :-)) You get whisked back immediately, thrown on an ekg machine and hooked up to the heart monitor. Despite your protests that any amount of enteric coated aspirin will rip your insides apart, you are given an aspirin (and do swalllow because by now you are thinking, well what IF?) but alhamdulillah keep your presence of mind to refuse the nitroglycerin.
LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
In short, I spent 2 days in the hospital, was given a medically-induced stress test (not comfy but not horrible) and treated like a serious invalid. Every time a different doctor came in and said, "So it seems chest pain brought you in?" you realize you are fighting a losing battle. "No, actually it was my ridiculously high blood pressure, coupled with the fact that I had a stroke in '97 and a pounding headache for 3 days, that brought me in."
"Ohhh so the headache pain?"
"Nooooooooo" even more firmly. "I don't come to the hospital for pain. I came because I have a history of STROKE and my blood pressure was 188/114. That's all."
Uh huh. Seems they don't believe you. lol So now, in addition to just trying to get over my rejection episode, I'm trying to recover from severe gastritis brought on by the aspirin. The aspirin I told them I was told to never take by my gastro docs because I have stomach issues (mainly from dialysis complications) but alhamdulillah....
ER Doc (who happens to be a nice Muslim boy masha'Allah) "Oh I think maybe you should have them mark in your chart that you are sensitive to aspirin".
Me "Um, yeah, I'll do that". LOL
So insha'Allah this is the last of all the exciting health stuff for a while. This one was just so comical I had to share it. :-) Ma salaama ya'll....
