Not feeling so well
Apr 24, 2009
I posted here last week because I had a meltdown in the Dr's ofc. I went today for a follow up since I did start taking Lexapro and Lorazepam which has helped. The only thing is my chest keeps hurting so she had an EKG done which I've had many. Only problem is that this time the EKG came back abnormal and she said it could be an exageration of the device or a small heart attack. I'm 34 and I'm so scared. I'm having an excercise stress test done in the hospital on Wed morning but I'm so scared.
Thanks for replying and asking fhare. My stress test was fine. Dr said nothing is wrong with my heart. Only problem I had was that before the stress test my blood pressure shot up higher then I've ever seen it. I'm usually 110/70 and it went up to 180/96. I was having a panic attack at the moment and then started shivering. Once I got on the treadmill the shivering stopped and the Nurse and Dr were very accommodating letting my husband come in with me. It was scary though to see my BP rise so high. I still have the chest pain and shortness of breathe but I'm hoping this will get better soon. I'm also considering changing to Xanax from Lorazepam, seem Xanax has worked better for me in the past. Thanks again for asking
