flutter, flutter, what?! OH! My heart!
Thursday, February 16, 2012
OK- so, about 6 weeks ago I noticed a funny flutter in my chest and I finally went to the doc to be evaluated. My POOPY doctor didn't take me very seriously but set me up for an echocardiogram and set me up with a 24 hour holter monitor to see if they can see the palpitation. She told me many athletes experience "extra" heart beats and she doesn't think I have anything to worry about. she's crazy ;) ANYWHO. I get hooked up today... should be interesting if anything... I'm conflicted though... I want an accurate reading about what my heart is up to but I'm finding it hard to resist seeing what I can do to mess with my heart rate so I can freak out my not-so-simpathetic doc. hahahaha! I'll be good I promise :)
I'll also let you know what if any results come fromt he evaluation.
