Medical Expenses

As some of you know back in November I signed up to do my first 5k Mud Run.  I had never done one before and was excited to do it.  

About half way way through the course I got light headed and blacked out.   I was unresponsive to medical personal for a few minutes.   After being evaluated and my vitals stabized the parmadics suggested I go to the hospital.  Not wanting to occur a ambulance bill I declined and said I’d go see my doctor on Monday. 

I went to my doctor on that Monday and started a series or blood tests and physical tests to determine what caused me to get light headed and black out.  I did a Stress Test, wore a portable EKG monitor for 48 hours, I had an Ultra Sound of my abdomen and finally a MRI.  

The Ultra Sound showed I have cyst on my kidneys and an enlarged and extreme fatty liver but the Ultra Sound wasn’t clear enough to tell any more.  The technician requested I have an MRI to see better.  They were concerned that the way the fat was around my liver that there may have been more then just fat there (a tumor). 

I have to say thankfully after everything was said and done there was no tumor, but unfortunately after a month of tests and blood work I have racked up a nice big medical bill. (My deductible). 

I have never ever done anything like this or asked for help but I do live pay check to pay check so when the bill came I freaked out.   If any one is able and willing to help I would appreciate any thing that you send.
