I went to urgent care today because I read on the computer yesterday that a blue lip can mean a severe asthma attack. Since I have not had that many asthma attacks, because I have had mental fog and stress, and because I have had asthma (seasonally) only in the last few years--and mildly (PC I haven't seen in years diagnosed it initially but at that point it turned out to be a bad lung infection), I was not even aware how to detect an attack in myself. Administering oxygen yesterday did not improve the color of my lips, but taking two puffs of ventolin did. It also helped me feel more energetic.
I went to urgent care BECAUSE I read on the internet that blue lips can be a sign of a severe asthma attack and you should call 911. Since I did not do this, because I just used some ventolin, I thought I should get checked out there since I still saw blueness today.
Over there, they thought/asked if the I'd eaten any blue food. I had not. They said my oxygen was good at 94 and said lip looked bruised. They were quite concerned with documenting the exact date of my LMP for some reason...which seemed very strange... until this afternoon when I realized I had cancelled a sleep study recently because I was bleeding heavily and had told them so. I realize due to my faulty calculation I gave them the wrong date this morning. Since I am aware that all my doctors receive my communications here, I will say I think it was October 10. I think I "get why" they were making such an issue of it today given my past accusations--which I stand by by the way!!!
I used two more puffs of ventolin after I got back from urgent care, and again the color and energy improved. I also notice during the exercising my oxygen levels were higher!!! YAY!!! Saturday morning, with no ventolin, they went down to 90 when I was exercising. The recording pulse oxcimeter is a great idea!!
