Stress Echocardiogram Test

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

My doctor recommended that I go for my heart test this morning due to my recent trip to the ER. I had the following symptoms on August 5, 2012: severe chest pains, cannot breathe properly, pulse rate was real fast, blood pressure real high, hands were numb and sweaty and I was trembling.

They took ultra sound of my heart before and after they put me on a treadmill. Start me slow on the treadmill and increase the speed and inclination until I said I am getting too tired. The nurse asked me a few times if I have any discomfort in my chest. I said, "No, discomfort." Result is I did pretty good and the doctor at this facility said that my heart condition is good.

I knew there is nothing to worry about before I go there. My doctor and hubby just want to make sure that there is nothing wrong with my heart. What I had is an anxiety attack due to my peri-menopause condition. Anxiety attack looks just like a heart attack which is scary. Problem is not only my estrogen and progesterone is not balance, my thyroid hormones are off too. This causes stress or anxiety attacks to occur. I have been doing pretty good in my nutrition, soy extracts and vitamin D, exercise, sleep and meditation but sometimes it is beyond my control. I have good and bad days which is why I have not been working since April 6, 2011.

  I am so glad to read that your heart is in good condition but am sorry to hear that you still suffer from anxiety attacks. A good friend of mine also has anxiety attacks and I know how scary they can be.
I wish you the best.

    About 20 years ago, I spent 3 days in a cardiac-care unit on a heart monitor due to an anxiety attack. I know that my heart is in good condition BUT there are still times it does feel like a heart attack. I am sorry you are dealing with this issue. It is really a challenge to get it under control.

Very tired and sore...

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I did not sleep very well again last night, hence, I woke up very tired this morning. Also, I was sored from the 60 min Aqua Zumba class on Monday.

I still went for my 30 minute walk this morning.

Took my daughter for her Tae Kwon Do class at Peak Sports Club. I went 30 minute on the treadmill.

Tomorrow morning, my doctor is sending me to have my heart checked out due to my recent trip to the ER.

    After a workout like Zumba and you didn't sleep well, no wonder you woke up so tired. Still, admire your consistency, you still do exercises but at lighter intensity, which is good considering what you did on previous day and not too much rest :D

    I'll be waiting to hear what the doctor says. Some day s after working out I get quite stiff, think it might be more just getting older.

Monday, August 27, 2012

Did not sleep very well last night. Probably worried about hubby's job.

1 Dannon Activia Blueberry Low Fat Yogurt 4 oz
1 extra small banana
1 cup of Milo
4 pcs Bolands Cream Crackers

Went for 30 minute morning walk with my iPod before it gets hot.

0.25 cup Rice
1 cup Stir fry snow peas
1 Preserved Egg
1 tbsp Pickled ginger

Stir Fry Snow Peas

Preserved Egg with Pickled Ginger

Went to Peak Sports Club after 5:00pm because daughter had homework to complete. Hubby and daughter went straight to the pool. I went on treadmill for 15 minutes. Attended the Aqua Zumba class for 60 minutes.

We wanted to get Vietnamese food for dinner tonight. Unfortunately, they were closed.

1 slice of 100% whole wheat bread
2 hot dogs
1 sunny side up egg

I am very tired now. Hopefully I will sleep good tonight.

A Redhead Joke:

Sunday, August 26, 2012

A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office and says that her body hurts wherever she touches it.

"Impossible!" says the doctor. "Show me."

The redhead takes her finger, pushes on her left breast and screams, and then she pushes her elbow and screams in even more agony. She pushes her knee and screams; likewise she pushes her ankle and screams. Everywhere she touches makes her scream.

The doctor says, "You're not really a redhead, are you?"

"Well, no" she says, "I'm actually a blonde."

"I thought so," the doctor says. "Your finger is broken."

0 to 200

Saturday, August 25, 2012

A couple had been debating the purchase of a new auto for weeks. He wanted a new truck. She wanted a fast little sports-like car so she could zip through traffic around town. He would probably have settled on any beat up old truck, but everything she seemed to like was way out of their price range.

“Look!” she said. “I want something that goes from 0 to 200 in 4 seconds or less. And my birthday is coming up. You could surprise me.”

For her birthday, he bought her a brand new bathroom scale.

Services will be at Downing Funeral Home on Monday the 12th, due to the condition of the body; this will be a closed casket service.

Please send your donations to; 'Think Before You Say Things to Your wife Foundation' Dallas, Texas.
