Well hit the emergency room for a friendly visit today. Been a good 15 years figured I needed a good reminder I guess?
Considering I was losing consciousness here and there an generally feeling dizzy an faint and getting chest and kidney pains, I figured it was time.
Only drugs I did any large amounts of recently were MXE and "bath salts" of the "cocaine simulating" type.
I was on both those drugs on and off for 6 months. binging here and there and then a week or two break and then right back on it a week or two and so on for 6 months.
Trying to get exercise in between and stay hydrated and all that.
Finally caught up with me.
Kept feeling like I was about to die for the last four days and lots of dizziness. Haven't even done any drugs five days or so. So I drive myself down to the ER and I write "Chest pains, losing consciousness" on the ticket and slip it in the window. Not more than 10 seconds go by and they call me back and get me half naked and slap me in a gurney, wire up an IV and an EKG and a whatever the heck all those things do. Stuck some tubes in my nose for oxygen and I just laid back and felt happy that if I was gonna die, at least it was in the hands of good care.
they took blood and urine samples and shot me up with Adavan or Atavan or something. 10 minutes later my entire body stops shivering, stops fainting and I have feeling like I was stoned now. Wtf. They treated me with anxiety medication for a drug overdose when I kept feeling death trying to pull me away. Somehow, it seems to have worked, and they gave me 8 more in case I get the feeling again. (It had been recurring for a few days and I finally had enough and went in).
Then they fed two huge bags of freezing cold water into my IV which made my whole body cold the whole time. My heart rate began to stabilize and they looked at my pee and blood and came back to talk about it.
I kept thinking I was having heart attacks or something.
They seem to say it's a kidney problem. It's called "Renel insufficiency".
In other words, I have stage 3 Chronic kidney disease.
This is why I have been feeling faint and feeling like I'm going to die all the time lately.
They said it could be from the MXE and Bath salts, and I need to wait a while without doing any drugs to find out if it goes away. If not, I straight up have stage 3 kidney disease and will have to pursue treatments.
So yeah folks..
6-8 months of on off MXE and whatever the stuff they sell at the smoke shops that works exactly like cocaine and you're gonna fuck your kidneys like I did.
I've got my fingers crossed it goes away. If not, I need to learn to fight off Kidney Disease.
They have scheduled a shitload of appointments for me to have my stuff checked out.
I'll keep you mobs updated!
No more funny drugs for me. Dammit. I'll stick to smoking trees from now on. It's legal too.
