I had been feeling poorly Thursday, then Friday hit and I was having chest pains. I thought it might be panic because panic makes you feel like your chest hurts and/or you're having a heart attack. I took an aspirin. I took some Pepto in case it was indigestion. Neither helped.
Then I started having pain going down my arm and thought big time UH OH! I told Mr. Skittles we had to leave for the hospital NOW. And we did.
I had an EKG (standard procedure) and an x-ray (also standard procedure). They saw something but weren't sure what so they transported me to a bigger hospital by ambulance for further testing.
At the new hospital I had the stress test. Again they thought they saw something and had me have the ultrasound of my heart. It was after this that they decided to admit me. I was sent to a room in ICU.
Monday morning was the heart cath. Nothing was found there, so I waited most of the day for my discharge papers to be sent up and after they were Mr. Skittles brought me home. I have a new prescription for angina.
Anyone who's ever been in the hospital knows that they never let you sleep, so I have a lot to catch up on. I'm a little bit sore, too.
And that's what happened. I realized the last post was kind of short and vague.
must make you feel good to know you are well and hearty and back on your way . I lost my friend Monday .. Continued blessings..sandy
Glad you're home, and I hope it doesn't take too long for you to get all rested up.
Well, it's quite a relief that they didn't find any issues of major consequence, that's for sure. I know exactly what you mean though about the needing to rest -and recover -from the hospital stay too! Get some sleep and while you're at it, get a couple winks for me too. Okay?
That must have been a bit scary!
Good to hear it wasn't anything toooo serious :)
im glad it wasnt a heart attack, and that you're home safe! hope you're feeling better soon xx
Horrid experience. I had something similar a few years ago and I started to panic which made it worse but it turned out to be an extreme case of heartburn which simulates a female heart attack. I know how scared one can feel. Glad you are home again
No, they don't let you sleep! Catch up on your rest. You can play World of Warcraft later. LOL. I have had a panic attack once, and I thought I was dying! But, glad it wasn't that or a heart attack. Hope the new medicine fixes you right up.
