Thursday I go in for a Nuclear Heart Stress Test. I’m okay with it, except for the shooting of the die into my body to see what the heart is doing. I have to remember NOT to have caffeine of any kind … tea, chocolate, coffee, etc. I have notes on my calendar at work and at home for NO Caffeine!
Doc wants to do this since I had a gripping pain that took my breath away for a few seconds as I was walking into WalMart. Although it seemed more like minutes as I tried to breath shallow so the pain would ease. Plus there’s this heaviness around my chest … *sigh* … not fun. He just wants to be sure that everything is fine. Since I have diabetes, this disease can mask the normal symptoms of a heart attack. I just feel so special!! HAH!!
Truthfully, I will feel better once they have the results of this test. That way I will know what’s going on and can work on that couch to marathon training.
