A little scare

Yesterday I think my body tried to have a heart attack. My heart was beating like it was going to come out of my chest, and really fast. I had pain going up my throat into my jaw. I had a hard time breathing. My left arm and shoulder hurt. This went on for like 15-20 min. When I finally made the decision to call an ambulance it shut off like it was on a switch. No lie.

So the very nice EMT's, Freddy and Kim, put an EKG on me and monitored my pulse. Blood pressure was a little high and my pulse was a little high. I opted not to go to the hospital. I am going to call on Monday and make an appt with a heart doctor to get checked out.

I decided to take my daughter to the midnight release of Breaking Dawn:Part 1. It meant something to her and I figured we needed the memory.

You should DEFINITELY have it checked out; however, I wanted to let you know that this is also a symptom of a panic attack (I have them ALL the time and each one freaks me out just as much as the last). So - don't panic just thinking your heart is bad - there are many reasons it could happen. I'll say a prayer for good health :)

Thanks Cris! I had this happen a few times when I was about 30. The EMT's mentioned panic attack too. What I don't understand is why now? I've been under much greater stress in the past and I was just fine. I am actually stress free right now. Life is good! :-)

I'll second the comment that says to get it checked out. I also have panic attacks. Usually when I have them is when I'm having a great day. Usually when I'm driving, singing along with the radio and that sort of thing.

Thanks Sharon. Panic attacks are weird, just weird!
