View Full Version : Life Weird Night

So I had to work pretty late, which is rough because my wife is due any minute, now...so everything in our life seems very up in the air. So I'm ina weird stae of mind, as it is...

I'm driving home, and my wife calls me in a panic. Obviously I'm thinking it's time to go to the hospital, but no. Apparently the Independence SWAT team went sprinting through our yard, as the armored vehicle drove up to our neighbor's door and a couple of shots were fired. My wife was a wreck, scared to death. So I told her to get to the basement away from any windows, while I talked to her on the phone till I got home. I pulled in the driveway, and investigators are all over the place, the armored vehicle has re-parked itself in the street, and all the SWAT guys are sitting in another vehicle. I ask them what happened (not expecting a straight answer) and whether it was safe or if I needed to get my wife and go, and they said it was safe, and all they could tell me was that they were "Serving a Warrant." A couple of hours later... and they are still scouring the place.

I finally come in from that excitement and sit down... and I start coughing. I get a pretty bad cough a couple of times a year, for seemingly no reason. Anyhow, I start coughing so hard that I passed out. I was sitting in my chair, and I remember going into a coughing fit, and then all I know is that there was a ton of weird sound in my head... and finally my wife yelling at me. I guess she heard me cough, then something didn't sound right, and came in to find me sitting with my eyes open, and my arms and legs shaking, and me not breathing, and my face beet red. My head feels weird as hell, now, but I guess I'm fine.

She yelled at me that the baby was going to come when she was ready, and the world had to stop trying to scare her into labor...ROFL

I haven't been to the doctor in years. I finally got insurance last year, but never went and got an actual doctor. To be honest, I'm not even sure how you "start" going to a doctor.
I know that sounds weird, I just haven't been in about 10 years, other than the clinics at CVS, an urgent care place here in town a couple of years back when I had pneumonia, and the ER once at Mizzou.

I'm mostly the same way. Just pick one that your insurance will pay for and schedule an appointment. When you gotta go, you gotta go. We're not spring chickens anymore.

I want none of that.
I'll be up by Jilly's head, waiting for them to bring the cleaned off baby to us. I don't want to see anything, I don't want to cut anything. That's why those doctors get paid!!! ROFL
I certainly want to do my best not to pull a Tiny Evel.

Used to be, whenever I would laugh or cough really hard, the room would start spinning and I would lose the ability to sit up straight (like you get when you're really dizzy). I think it had to do with my sinuses. Hasn't happened in quite some time. I never actually passed out, though.

That's happened to me quite a few times over the past few years, especially scary when I'm driving. This is the first time that's happened to me.

In high school I had some friends who would make themselves pass out, but even while they were unconscious, they did weird shit. They came over to my house one day, and did it to me. This felt very close to that... coming out of it.

Happened to me one time while I was driving 65 mph down the highway. Scared the shit out of me.

I never figured out exactly why it was happening, or really even why it stopped. I was told when I was younger that I have partially blocked sinuses. Maybe something to do with too much pressure on the brainstem or something?

Go to the doctor. That's not normal.

Amen to that, Mr. Sully. If you have one, call your doctor first thing in the am and tell him/her about the episode. If you don't have one, consider going to the ER. The bottom line is that the human body isn't designed to pass out as a result of a coughing fit. It sounds like the blood supply to your brain was temporarily cut off. Not only is that bad from the whole "passing out" point of view, but it could result in permanent brain damage which really sucks unless you enjoy eating baby food through a bendable straw and playing Jingo 12 hours a day in your pajamas.

Dude, get yourself to a Dr. Go to the local clinic and see which ones are covered by your insurance and schedule an appointment. Give them a phone number of your last clinic so they can fax your medical records.

Do it tomorrow.

If nothing else, they should give you a shot for your vaginal nerve.

Look up "cough syncope".

Be careful driving. We had a guy in Spokane that started coughing while he was driving, passed out, crossed a wide center berm and hit another vehicle head on, killing five kids.

Agreed. The vaginal nerve is nothing to fool around with. Unless, of course, it happens to be someone else's vaginal nerve ... say, one belonging to a young, nubile blonde just out looking for some fun. Even then, they say that, when your vaginal nerve is tweaked, it can take awhile to recover.

My brother had the same problem. Every now and then he would go into a coughing fit and sometimes pass out from it. After several trips to a few different doctors and ER's over the course of about a year he was no better off. When finally this old small town doctor checked him out and told him he had a problem with his sinus' and they were basically draining / dripping on the back of his throat and causing him to cough.

After some antibiotics and some strong sinus meds he was fine.

Weird. Just yesterday my wife told me a story about a guy she works with who was sitting on his couch talking to his wife when he started coughing real hard. The next thing he remembered was the ambulance. Apparently he had a seizure. Tests have been done but the cause is still unknown.

Man, you need to see a doctor. Not just for the cough, but in general. There are lots of things that can go on in the body without any indication and very minor or no symptoms at all (borderline diabetes for example). You basically ask a coworker or friend if they like the doc they see, call, and make an appointment for a new patient exam/physical. It is no big deal and you should do it every year or two. You could have some freaky lung disease or something. Oh, and note to self. `If wife becomes a member of CP, never talk about delivery room war stories.

Hanging cookies isn't going to do any good, I'm afraid, Ms. Jilly.

Garlic will fend off Vampires and the occasional, hypersensitive Werewolf, but cookies don't do much - unless they're peanut butter chip in which case they will keep you reasonably safe from Erik Estrada should he come skulking around looking to load you up on his Kawasaki and carry you off to his cave for a lengthy interrogation.
