Now here's an interesting one: A few weeks ago I had my meds in the morning with breakfast as usual and about half an later got up and prompty collapsed. I don't remember much but apparently I got up a few more times and collapsed again. The wife called the ambulance but the paramedics were a little flumoxed because they couldn't find a pulse so they called out another unit. Between them they managed to drag me up the hall and out the front door, stick me on a stretcher and get me to the hospital. Eventually I came to my senses but stayed in overnight for observation. The wife took my BP when I was down - 134/80 and blood sugars were 8.0 so it was neither of them. I then thought perhaps I may have taken a double dose of my morning meds: physiotens, prednisone, telmisartan, tramadol, panadol,, actemra and fish oil but the symptoms didn't match. They monitored my heart and eventually let me go. Since then I've had scans and wore a heart monitor for 24 hours to check for irregularities, but all was fine. Total mystery to all. Personally, I think it was the actemra, but I'll never know. At least I provided a little entertainment for the neighbours, apparently all came out for a bit of a gander to see what was going on.
