heart issue follow up

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

well, called my primary doctor this morning and only got the recording - so pushed the number that got me thru to the oncall doctor. Told Him what was going on, he said he would tell the secretary and they would get back with me. took a little while, but they got back to me and scheduled an appointment with my doctor ( who happens to be in the next town over - but is only 5 miles away) today and I will go in and see him this afternoon.

will see what happens.
This whole thing seems real surreal. Chest really hurts today - not a pain hurt, but a pressure pain. someone is sitting on my chest kind of pain.

Work was so amazing. they called to check up on me, wondered if I was in the hospital or home resting. when they saw the note that the er doc wanted me to have at least two more days off, they have decided to cover my shifts for the rest of the week, just in case I need the time off to heal. If I feel up to working I am welcome to come in, but if not. They are getting my shifts covered for me. ( so amazing)they dont want me overdoing it by returning to work too soon. ( they know me too well).

So we will see what happens at the doctors office today. maybe nothing. Maybe schedule for future tests, I dont know.

    I truly amm. talked with them this morning. lots of chest pressure/pain. they again told me to take the rest of the week off as they have it under control and covered and not to worry about it. to just rest and get better.
    they know I work hard when I am there and would work too hard if I am there. I am blessed with wonderful boss and coworkers. so am home, resting. will have to ease into my next challenge a bit I think as it is starting this weekend with weighin. 5% weight loss. gotta start slow with heart issues. I am ok with that.
    all the more reason to work on my health. slow and steady and permanent health changes.

    Take the time off to heal...it's SO important. Glad you got a different opinion...these doctors today are my worst nightmare. That's why I'm doing EVERYTHING I can to try and stay healthy. Hugs to you and I'm continuing to pray that all will be well. emoticon

    still having lots of chest pressure/pain. doc doesn't think it is the heart but rather chest cavity muscles that are inflamed. wants me to continue resting and taking the meds the ER doc gave me.
    get off all caffeine, and no more ibuprofen, tylenol,etc. I might be a bear to be around for the next couple of weeks. Just sayin. ugh.

    if I dont feel better in a couple of days or things get worse - call him back or return to the ER.
