Last night a blood vessel burst in my husbands finger, he didn't show me when it happened because he figured I wouldn't want to see the pea size swell that was turning blue and purple on his pinky. He didn't hit it, bang it or do anything that would cause it to burst. Now I know this seems silly but I don't think things like bursting vessels should be happening at his age (25). After it burst he came over to me on his knees, white, and cold with his heart racing telling me he was going to pass out soon. He doesn't like to tell me when he is in pain usually so I knew something was seriously off. For 10 minutes I tried things that I had seen before, cold compress on back neck, cold orange juice, cold water. He needed a bag because of his nausea but never threw up. He layed down on his back and then he started shaking. I took him to emergency and doctors told us there was nothing they could do. His blood pressure was 146 (over I can't remember), which is 20 higher then what he normaly is. We went home and I kept an eye on him. Today at 1:30PM again his finger is discolouring, no swelling today. He feels faint, and turning cold. I lay him down, get a cold wet cloth for his forhead, put blankets on him and this time put a heat pack where his feet are. I don't know what to do! I'm 8 months pregnant, I don't want to go into early labor but this stress is getting to me. Doctors think we are being silly... are we?
Does anyone have advice?
