HG almost landed me in the ER again

But my amazing hubby saved me, he took the day off, he found my Zofran suppositories and went and got me gravol suppositories so I was able to use those and many other meds to stop the insane none stop vomiting yuck

But now I'm totally afraid that I should have gone to the ER for one big reason, I have a bad pottasium deficiency due to the 4 now 5 sever HG pregnancies coupled with an eating disorder I have battled my whole liife
And now well my friggin toe is totally numb now(this happend a few times before)but this time I can't feel it at all, I'm so afraid I'm going to lose it eventually(crazy fear that could come true)but I'm afraid to take my 1000mg pottasium supplements because that is an insane high dose(fine for me because of the deficiency but I worry about baby)so maybe I should have gone in for a bag of pottasium(if my level is low(I have been as dangerously low 2)they give me big saline sized bags through IV it takes an hour for each bag to go in because it can't go in to slow or it will kill you and same wth to fast has to be perfect oh man it burns the arm, my record is 5 bags in one visit)gahhh I will call my doc tomorrow and see if he wants me to come in and have my levels checked maybe that will help get the feeling back in the toe!

Yeah I shouldn't have googled it lol

Oh man, so sorry. Can they do a midline and set you up for doing this at home? Since you've struggled with this for so long it would help a lot.
Hope you feel better

That would save me so much but nope
Believe it or not they say they won't send a nurse to my house for some reason I have begged my doc I think I might just mention it every time I see him maybe eventually he will

You should call your doctor ASAP, potassium deficiency is very serious, as you prbably know it aids in cardiac function, just like calcium and sodium, which you also may be out of wack on due to HG. Ifyou are having tingling/numbness in your toe it may be due to low calcium as well, or another electrolyte. I am not a doctor, but have learned a lot about this from reliable sources in nursing school. I hope you can get treated soon, let us know how you are doing. You don't want to treat this on your own since you may also need other electrolytes.

I don't know much about it, but it sounds terrible for you. I think I would call the doc too and see what they say about going in. I hope you are feeling better soon.

I think you should go in. A numb toe even without HG would warrant that! Remember the spiral...don't get caught

That's what I think he will do, I go every few weeks but it will be best just to have a set day at time I think!!!
