Hello Friends and DC Family…
I had a bit of a scare yesterday in that I had a sharp chest pain and shortness of breath. My wife took over and drove my fat @$$ to the ER of the hospital even though I was protesting. I'll be honest. I don't like doctors or hospitals. I think it's a guy thing.
Anyway, they kept me overnight for observation assuming heart issues. Well, I have never been overnight in a hospital… never… and was born on the front porch at home so I can say "NEVER" been to stay in a hospital and I'm 52 years old.
My glucose was 94-103 during the million tests they took on my blood. My chest xray was normal. My blood pressures were normal. But the coolest thing was my stress test this afternoon revealed the doctor saying, "you have the energy and stamina of a 32 year old … it's amazing!"
I was released without an actual diagnosis of what the problem was but relieved on what the problem wasn't. I am thinking the attack was either GI or anxiety related because the heart is fine.
I am glad that I went to be checked out but don't tell my wife that I said that. Sometimes when we (men) put off things like that, we are not just being a guy … we're being stupid!!!
Don't mess around with symptoms that could be fatal. I didn't. I thank my loving wife for her support and being my best friend.
