Once they get their hands on you they make like you’re a pin cushion. I went to the Dr’s because of my little chest pain incident because they insisted on it. They hooked me up to an EKG which took longer to set up than to do the test itself. The doctor did not like the time between functions of each of the four sections of my heart. Now I have to go for a cardiac consult and an abdominal ultrasound to look at my hernia and gall bladder to determine if either one is the cause of this weird thing that’s happened only 3 times now in like 10 years. The cardiac consult will determine if I need a monitor for 48 hours or for 30 days. I’d rather 48 hours because if I show up at my mothers house all strapped up it will be chaos for nothing. I don’t think even a 30 day monitor is going to be any good since it’s like 3 years between incidents. I feel like at the end of all this testing that they are going to just say “well we don’t know what the issue is so call us if it happens again.” All this time off work to go for testing will be for nothing too. So what did I do Friday after she laid all this on me? Went for a 3 mile run keeping my splits between 9:45 and 9:55. See! I’m fine and it’s nothing but one of those unexplainable things in life like why the wind sometimes abruptly changes directions or something like that. It’ll probably remain a mystery that I’ll die without an answer for. I eat healthy, exercise regularly, get plenty of rest, drink lots of water and am in pretty good health for an almost 49 year old. I’ll be surprised if anything comes of all of this but here’s to hoping someone sees something that will put the questions and worry in everyone’s heads to rest. Till I find out either way, I’m running and working out as always.
