Past few days i have been in the hospital quiet a bit. I originally went there with a lump in my throat and shortness of breath, i was thinking GERD or something of the sort. They took my blood and did some teest and noticed my Hemoglobin was elevated to 20.6.
Today i had to go back to do a few more test and some blood letting. What the docto told me was that they were checking the test for Leukimia, Polycythemia primary, and Secondary Polycythemia. I dont live in a high altitude area. I do smoke, and i am a heavy guy.
The doctor seems to think I have secondary Polythemia and so do the nurses who took my blood due to the original test. But im still freaking since there is no actual report yet. Ive looked up a ew things on pilythemia. But im still not sure what to expect.
Currently I have been very tierd, past few days i go to the hos[ital at about 11am, get out at about 6pm and get home. When im home i normally fall asleep from 7pm- whenever. Its currently 2am right now. Also, ny stomach is upset. That is a bit newer. Just started today after the doctors. I let the blood nd everything, and was fine. Walked around walmart got a few things and then grabbed some Burger King. Thats when i got my stomach ache, and its still not gone away. Its a nausea feeling.
What im curious about is that if these symptons are normal for Secondary Polycythemia? I'll say since i was short of breat 2-3 days ago, i havnt touched one smoke ( I smoke Djarum Cloves about 12 or so a day). Ive been a huge wreck, more scared then i have ever been in my life. Anxiety has gone sky rocket, but i can still sleep. My breathing issues arnt as bad anymore since the letting, only have issues when i have a slight panic attack.
I apologise if the text is difficult to read or if im not making any sense. Also, some info might be sparadic and just thrown into the writing. Im just scared, and curious. Does this mean my lifes over? Will i die soon then? Im not sure what to think.
