so yeah. This definitely disturbs me. I've been having really mild squeezing pains in my left upper chest area for the past week or so...and even though I'm doped up on paxil, I still feel a faint sense of dread. Kind of like..."hmmm. I may drop dead of a heart attack soon." Dullin' the senses since 1994. Thank you Paxil.
Yeah, I know what you mean....I try very hard to avoid that info most of the time, but it finds me anyway. And of course, I can't resist reading about things I already have....like weird chest pains, fatigue, feeling of impending doom. So, even with negative stress tests, echo, etc., I find myself scheduled for a cath next week (and terrified both of side effects and that they'll actually find something, which they don't expect but are doing this, I think, mostly to reassure me. My poor cardiologist; I practically beg him to tell me what to do, then question him when he does). I have been having similar (though lesser) symptoms for at least 10 years, but since turning 50 I just can't argue myself into the "it's only anxiety/reflux/muscle strain" thing anymore.Need better drugs........
I meant to say....thanks for this blog. Been reading it a couple weeks now, and it helps to know I'm not the only one.Trish
Lacy:I like that little saying. I think you’ve got the makings of a pretty sweet t-shirt with that.***Trish:I’m jealous. I wish I was scheduled for a cath next week. Although, I can see how you’d be afraid of the side effects. I obsess about radiation damage for weeks after getting x-rays at the dentist. Good luck with the test! Oh, and if you find the good drugs, please let me know.
