Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I am going to the doctor tomorrow for a variety of symptoms I've been suffering over the past several months. I've been experiencing shortness of breath, heart palpitations, shaking hands, trouble swallowing, and some weird red spots on my left arm (they look like blood-red freckles). I'd attributed the majority of the symptoms to stress, but when the spots came on my arm, then went away, then came back yesterday, I looked it up and several resources said to get to a doctor right away. So I called my doc this morning and they said they could see me first thing in the morning.
Of course, I love the internet, because I can find information about EVERYTHING under the sun....but of course, too much information is what sometimes results. So I'm either just fine and just very stressed...or I'm dying of lupus or leukemia or several other conditions I can't pronounce.
So, I am going to have a nice glass of wine to calm me down, so I can maybe get some sleep tonight, and then see what happens in the morning. I hope it's nothing serious. I'll fill you in once I know.
