Why would she say that??

mariatoth

As everyone knows I have really bad anxiety and panic attacks..so I go get blood work done for my physical and the nurse that takes my blood tells me if im ok and I reply, yes I am why? And she goes, oh because your blood feels warm..u might have a fever or u might get one..so I look at her and im like if this lady only knew how bad I worry about things..so I leave the place and now I can't stop thinking about what she said im so scared what if something is wrong..why did my blood come out warm is something wrong with me. I just prayed to God that the blood work comes back ok and that the lady was just speaking out loud.

I would call you Doctor and ask that question. Otherwise you will make yourself nutty with all the "what ifs" I mean how is blood supposed to be...cold? lol Of course it will be warm if it is from inside of you.

Or call the lab where they took the blood if it bothers you that much and ask someone what that means and why would she say that to you?

I replied to your other post from last week and I never heard back from you.

Hope that other than this all is okay. Hang in there! Smile

That's weird. I would think it was normal for blood to be warm? I looked it up on bing and the answer that looks relevant is that human blood is warm usually due to the food we eat and how it's metabolized. Here's the site http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index? qid=20060815112649AANRn2M.

Call your doctor if you are worried about this. I really don't know why the nurse would've said that. It frustrates me to no end when it seems like people almost sometimes intentionally try to make others worry. I'm sure you're fine but it's always better to hear that from a professional. Hugs ().
