Last night at around 7 I got the most intense chest and shoulder pain. I knew it was probably just very bad heartburn, but it was a bit concerning. Hubby ran to the store to get me some antacids, they didn't help. The intense pain lasted about half an hour, then it followed with waves of pain that weren't as bad. I was up all night with it. It was still there this morning and was radiating into my jaw and ears. I took some tylenol for the pain, but it didn't help. I called hubby at work and he made me call the Dr. I went in at 2 this afternoon. My blood pressure was low(as usual), lungs clear, heart sounded good, but he wanted to do an EKG to make sure. It came back fine. He suspects it is bad heartburn mixed with a huge dose of Stress. I know I am under stress, have been for awhile. I talked with him about it, ended up in tears(which apparently I was the third person today to cry to him, I joked that it was him causing the emotional outbursts). I guess it just hit me all at once last night and my body finally said enough is enough. Problem is, I can't do anything about the stress, which causes stress itself! And it doesn't help that some of that stress got moved up by a week. My son told me when I got home from the Dr's that he is leaving for bootcamp this Sunday instead of the 24th. He got bumped up because someone else didn't pass the physical and he already has. Add that to the major house stress we are under right now and I just don't feel well. In fact I am still having the chest and left shoulder pains as I type this and I haven't been able to eat anything since dinner yesterday, I just feel awful. And of course I'm now stressing over the price of this Dr visit!!
