hyperventilation means over breathing...

yesterday i have a fever, after sitting in a freezing-air-conditioned classroom for almost 2 hours... actually i have an allergic towards something that is icy cold...whenever i hold an ice for more than 10 minutes, my fingertips will start to swell for about 2 days...

a week before, i already got a fever,but i had already recovered... so yesterday was the 'new' fever...

terrible headache, chest pain, plus shivering..and i felt such numbness on both my hands...i also have muscle n joint pain

after sleeping for a while, my body started trembling... my voice was a bit slurry, n i can't speak like normal...then i started crying because i dont know what to do...my friends drove me to a hospital after the marghrib prayer...

while waiting for my turn, i started to feel like there's something (like pins n needles) prickling my skin...n my hands were both started to cramp n bent upwards... that was hurt!!

i cannot move my hands, n i look like a handicap person with hands bent that way...my face n my legs was cramp too.. when the nurse checked on my condition, she said that i have a fever n too much oxygen in my body..from her observation, i breath in short but too fast rythm...so she asked me to breath reaaaalllly sloow...my oxygen level at that time was 100,which is over its limit...

i was sent to the emergency department by using a wheelchair...i could not even move my hands n legs at that time..in that area, the medical assistants asked me to breath slowly n take a deep breath..i tried so hard to control my breathing but since it was a failure, i was given a mask that was attached to a plastic bag (which i dont know its name) n breath through it so that i can re-inhale my carbon dioxide...

since i cannot move my hands, one of my friend was holding it for me...after quite sometimes, my right hand can be moved (but i still can't feel anything) so i held that mask on my own... then, i can move my right leg but it took me quite a loong time to recover the left part of my body... during that 're-inhale' process, the medical assistant there was asking me whether i have stress or not...because hyperventilation happens when someone have stress... hell no.. i was fine (although with fever) n i didnt have any problem on that day...he also asked me whether i have an astma before (which i don't)

my friends n the medical assistant were giving me support... like "come on you can do it" "you have to be strong" "breath slower and deeper" "chaiyok2" n so on...i was allowed to breath without that mask only after all of my body parts can be moved, n after my oxygen level drops to 98 or 97.

everything was ok, so i was sent to the doctor (wheelchair again!) and was injected with a pain killer on my right arm...plus a drip on my left hand...then i was allowed to discharge from that hospital...i also got some meds for my fever...

during that night, i still can't feel anything on my hands, but thank God that i'm getting better today :)
