[Health] Heart report
#1
Heart report
I made mention that it's probable I'd had a heart attack this past Sunday evening. Although I'm feeling better-ish as in more like my normal ache all over, etc. self, primary physician believes I did in fact have a minor heart attack. I had to see primary anyway for the compliance face-to-face, oddly enough as I was assuming I'd done that via pulmonary doc. That'll teach me for thinking. Primary doc had staff record an EKG and told me to report this info to my cardiac specialist. I have a lab blood work slated for Monday. And I'm expecting I'll be put on a blood pressure med.

Secondary note: on my spinal stimulant trial, it's on hold until I get a leg to spine nerve test called an EMG. That is this Monday AM. Busy busy.

Best to y'all and become healthier if you have any way to influence it. Neglect brings regret.

Cheers and all that...

RE: Heart report
G'day Dave

EKGs can often fail to pick up signs of a previous minor MI so glad to hear you are going to get some bloods done. Best wishes.

RE: Heart report
Thanks y'all. Each day I'm feeling a bit better so I'm sure I'll be OK. Obviously I've got to take it a bit easy, but being disabled already there's not much more easy I can add in.

Happy weekend y'all.

RE: Heart report
I'm away from the forum because of a few physical issues myself and then you go and have a MI? Seriously, do take care as much as you can. We would hate to have something bad happen to you. How else would we have funny jokes and great comments?

RE: Heart report
Thanks GrammaBear.

Today was busy. Blood test for the MI and the EMG test from leg/walking issue from bad spine. EMG tech/Dr. says no nerve damage between spine and legs, so good there. Cardiac doc visit next week...Great news too. Called Geico and I can save up to 15% on insurance. JK   Wink
