"Are you anxious about anything"
NOW THAT'S A QUESTION THESE DAYS?"
"Only with the state of the world:
states on fire,
back to back hurricanes,
lost my cat..."
So I answer: "not especially".
This was one of the many questions asked me during my doctor appointment yesterday. Lucky me! I got to see both the nurse practitioner as well as our family physician. She (NP) asked him to come in after the exam, EKG, blood work, etc. And they agreed to give me a Rx to take at night to keep my bp and heart rate from spiking. And they also want me to be tested for sleep apnea.
So now we wait to see what the tests show. Guess they will take a week or so...
Told them that I wouldn't go to the ER last Friday when all this started because I didn't think I was having a heart attack. (Luckily I was right) However I did tell DH that if I passed out at home, he could call 911.
Something strange is going on and it does involve my heart and bp, so it is scary. I don't want a repeat of these last 4 days.
It's Tuesday noon now and DH just went to pick up the Rx (it had to be ordered). Not feeling great this am... weak and a bit headachy... but no spike during the night last night so I was able to sleep.
Drinking a little black Irish tea - in case I'm headachy missing the caffeine.
My EKG is always a bit strange and was again yesterday, but has been that way for years and was checked out by a Cardiologist about 5 years ago. At that time he said my heart was fine. But now if this Rx and/or sleep apnea test doesn't give results, they may send me back to a Cardiologist. Guess we'll see.
Oh, the fun and games of aging...
