I had a Dental Appointment Tuesday Morning at 7:30 to get some prep work for a bridge. Early on in the procedure I started having problems with breakthrough pain and after he gave me more pain medicine it still hurt and I tried to tell him to stop. The next thing I knew was I woke up surrounded by a lot of people standing over me looking at me just what a Panic Disorder person loves being surrounded by a bunch of people that they don't know.

Anyway the Dentist wheeled me down to ER and than they admitted me to VA as they were afraid that I had a stroke. I had X_Rays/ CT Scans and an IV put in. I was admitted and stayed till 4 PM yesterday. They gave me IV Fluids, sugar and orange juice and no medication till 8 PM when I was given 6 units of insulin cause my blood sugar had gone up to 388. I did not get any other meds till I threw a fit at midnight when I said no more blood draws till I had zanax.

Some medication I take its in my records and they never gave me

Heart Medication Losartain and Metropopl

Diabetes Meds I got 2 shots in 21 hours total of 29 units when i take 128 unites of Novalog and 82 of Lantus a day

Meds I take daily but did not get in VA

Finastrade

Omeprazole

Aspirin

Metformin

Gabapentin

Niacin

Tamsulosin

Plavix

Simvastin

Citalopram

I was pretty much on my own.

I'm sorry you had to go through this Pete.

Sudden withdrawal from meds like you take, can cause life threatening effects and they should have known that.

That was a close one. Glad your still with us.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.
