It's Not What I Thought It Was!

I have been dealing with a rash on the top of my arms now for a week.......
a few other symptoms such as headache, hoarseness, a few heart palpitations (like a flutter).....nothing serious.
I thought it was the Chia Seeds I had started eating in my oatmeal, after about 4 days of eating them I thought I may be allergic to them so I stopped......The rash did not get any better......matter of fact is got worse!

This morning at work I had the worse heart palpitation I have ever had and thought I was going to pass out!
I had enough........what is going on I I called my hubby to take me to the ER!

Of course they take lots and lots of blood, EKG, chest X-ray.....all came back great. Long story short....we think its the Veramyst nasal spray I have been using for the past 3 weeks for my seems the steroid in it is my culprit....NO MORE Veramyst for me! Now I just wait for about 3 or 4 days to see if the rash clears up!

I took this shot a couple of years ago......I love this beautiful old Maple tree at my daughters house. I look forward every year to see its beautiful transition in the Fall.

Hope everyone has had a great Monday......Fall in definitely in the air!

God Bless
