Yesterday, I started my day by going to the ER.
When you mention chest pains, it is amazing how fast you get a room.
You won't be disappointed.
And than I got to chew 4, count'em-4, baby aspirin.
Just enough water to get them down.
Next, I got the inside of my elbow gouged out by the nurse, who could not find my vein.
If she were a cartoon, the bubble over her head would read
" I'll dig just a little bit more and I'll find it."
She had to give up and drill another spot.
Honeyman said it was painful just watching.
Imagine how it felt.
Next came the EKG and blood tests.
Than an X-ray.
No heart attack and they can't find anything.
They sent me to get a stress echo test and to talk to a cardiologist.
They wanted my heart rate up to 180, but it didn't want to go past 170
so they went with that, because I was seeming to need to stop
Maybe they were afraid my heart was going to explode.
It was normal.
I figured that it would be.
But, one never knows.
It really felt like they were trying to kill me.
Apparently my heart skips beats sometimes and when the next beat comes it is harder and gives me some pain and can make me lightheaded.
It also can give me cottonmouth.
It isn't dangerous, but is annoying.
