Well-- Monday morning I got a doctor's appt. for this *bug*,
sinus-bronchial thing. I came home with new meds...thinking hooray
I am on the road to health.
Well in the early afternoon, I was BLOGGING in my recliner and it started
with sudden heavy pressure chest pains. I thought"hmm...reflux"---I started
trying to find a way to get comfortable-still thinking this is the worse pressure I have ever had.
I called my husband--he said call 911. I still thought *no, don't do it* it will pass, 20 more minutes passed--finally I called, the paramedics came--and took me to the hospital.
I showed no signs of heart distress. I ended up having lots of bloodwork and stress test. I spent the NIGHT and came home today. Results, reflux.
YET....and this is a big yet....I should have never hesitated.
I heard that from the EMT guys, the doctors etc...
because it COULD have been much worse, the hesitation could have been deadly.
That is my warning for all of us, who think "what should I do"--women tend to hesitate.
~~so thankful to be home
Having follow-up care this week for other things--that showed up, non cardiac.
