Just so everyone knows, if I am gone a few days, I probably am in the hospital. I have had some back pain when I workout, and when volunteering, but I just put it down to old age, since I am losing weight, and most of the time felt good.
My shoulders felt like I was burning lactic acid, and there was pain in the center of my back. I had some shortness of breath, and neck pain, as well as chest tightness. I slept a lot today, and I feel pretty good right now, except for the fact that my AC conked out. I will make a decision tomorrow morning about going to the E.R. I hope to sleep well, and feel better tomorrow, which is what they will do in the hospital. They always cut out food/water for 24 hours, and then mess up my diet, then release me with small changes in my meds. The only good thing about a hospital stay, would be that the AC would be working when I got back home.
I am hoping to avoid that, and I have cut out my salty canned beans, and resumed taking the night Lasix they were trying to wean me off ( at my insistence ). I keep trying to cut down on pills, and just think I pushed it too far. I was rinsing canned beans, instead of cooking fresh, while reducing my diuretics. It may just be that, and 3-4 days from now, I will be back at 50%..lol
I plan to eat some chicken and green beans, watch an hour of TV, and head to bed, still feeling OK, and wake up feeling even better.Hope to talk to everyone tomorrow.
