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.
