    Treadmill test on Monday-big differences in BP sitting and standing, he changed some meds for now. I think the doctor paid attention this time when I told him my symptoms....

    Do tell your family...............they love you and care about you.
    If I was there with you, I'd give you a back rub.

    This time? He doesn't usually? You do know there are other doctors, don't you? Let us know how the test comes out.

The school nurses drove me to the ER-ha, I wouldn't ride in an ambulance-they said not a heart attack but high blood pressure. (it was just under 190/130) But resting heat beat is low, under 50. (is that really bad?)

    They said I must have a stress test this week or next. My question-if something shows up on the stress test, will they tell me no flying? I plan to fly out in 2-3 weeks for my grandson's birth, I really wouldn't want to not go. Anybody know an answer to that question?

    We are not saying a word of this to my daughter, or my mother the blabber of the family. I am going to fib and tell her everything is grand, I'll be there soon. Can't unplug the phone though, what if baby comes early?

    But I would like an answer to the stress test question, or am I just being overly paranoid?


    chest pains does not always mean its your heart.

    your blood pressure wasn't that high.


    you should be able to fly, your blood pressure should not be that high when you have the stress test done...and if it is...they will tell you if you can fly....now I want you to take the rest of the week off work and just relax, if you can't relax.....just do normal things..but don't overdue.

    understood?

    and your not being paranoid....do you know just how much worry, I cannot eat nor sleep before my mammogram each year?

    bunny girl....its just normal to over-worry.

    I am so sorry to have heard this, I know you will be fine, nerves can do a lot of things to your body, I used to get painful throat infections .....a few days later..they were gone...they were brought on my stress.....or they would have not gone away........severe headaches as well.

    Chrons

    No Matter the out come here - I'd like to suggest a second opinion on everything..

    Your statement was - the DR. Listens this Time..??
    After the stress test - get another opinion on your chart & prescriptions etc...

    you are your own advocate...!!!
