GOING TO THE DR
Tuesday, April 27, 2010
Well, my boss made me call the dr today after almost passing out twice in 2 weeks. I don't know what is going on, but I am scared. I have felt like I have a lump in my chest for the past 3 days, and when I burp, it doesn't go away. My chest hurts when I swallow food, but not when I drink. When I called the office today, they said to come in and have someone drive me. How scary is that, I can't even drive myself. I just hope it is indigestion and nothing more serious. We have a very strong family hx of heart disease, my grandmother had heart failure almost 13 yrs ago, and now has chf, leaky valves and my dad had a heart attack at 38 and now has a tear on his aorta. The odds are not in my favor. My aunt passed away 3 yrs ago from a massive heart attack, I am just hoping it is not my heart.
My EKG and labs were both fine. The next 2 tests are an echocardiogram on Thursday and then a haltermonitor next week. I am somewhat relieved, I just hope the next 2 tests turn out ok.
