A medical question about myself

I know I know go see the DOC right, well I am a little scared to do that. I have been SOB on occasion and I noticed when I am walking around I am getting blueness in my thumb nails. I know that sounds weird ,well at least it sounds weird to me. My resting pulse is usually around 79-80. I am very lg. My blood pressure is usually 150/80. Dr has said BP is not a big deal. I also have a hernia that I am totally ignoring right now. What do you think? I know we don't dx but would you be concerned? PM me if you don't want to respond online.

Thanks everyone

I know I'm a train wreck. I honestly was hoping to get through nursing school before I feel totally apart but I am not sure that is going to happen.

My advice is just like everyone else's. Get yourself to the doc pronto. Nurses don't diagnose huh? LOL!

I empathize with ya, girl, cause I do the same thing! But, I think you already know what you need to do. Hope everything is OK for you.

Just a little more reinforcement. Go to the doctor!! Ignoring the problem will not solve a thing. Its best to know what it is that ails you so that you can be treated. Honey, you don't have to be a wreck and school will always be there. Take care of yourself!! (and let us know) Feel Better!!

Several issues here. #1. Find a new doctor -- you're overweight and have hypertension -- this needs to be followed up. #2. Short of breath/hypoxia. You need to go to a great doctor NOW. Do not put nursing school before your health. Good luck ... good health ... now call the doctor!

Hon, I feel for you. I've just been down this road. Had real bad chest pain while I was in nursing school, and after I graduated. I was afraid it was heart disease. I tried to tough it out too, but it just got to be too much. Ask the folks here on the BB, they'll tell you. It turns out it was asthma which I keep under control with meds. So PLEASE get checked out now. It could be devastating if you don't. Keep us posted. WW.
