Well I made an comment in the Useless Posts thread that I didn't expect a reaction to, but with all the kind, caring and supportive people on this board I now feel like I should share and not leave you all worried . I guess I could use the support right now too.
I haven't been feeling 'right' for a few months, so I went to the doc.
Seems I'm having some heart problems, my blood pressure is sky high and my heart rate is irregular. I have to start taking some meds and get some lab tests done, then see a cardiologist for an echocardiogram and wear a heart monitor for 24hrs. I had an EKG in the office and it was 'basically normal with some spikes and a high heart rate'.
So it's all just wait and see for now.
It's all kind of strange and scary to me since I have basically no risk factors for cardiovascular problems. I'm 27 years old, I have never smoked, I rarely drink and never heavily, I have a pretty healthy diet and I've always been active, also I don't live a stressful life.
Do we have any doctors on the board?
I'd appreciate any info or similiar stories that anyone would care to share. Thanks in advance.
