MUD news (poss heart attack)

JUst a note: I MAY have had a very light heart attack. My wife is telling everyone that I did have one! OMG.
It's upset her a lot! For those of you who do not know, my wife has BP.
She is so upset currently.
The reg DR I see says that I could have had one. I have a poss spot on an EKG he did. I see a heart dr a week from Monday.
I'll try to inform the board with what he says.
Pray,
Thanks

Re: MUD news (poss heart attack)

Mudhound

Hope you are okay. Tell your wife to take some deep breaths. She will be okay. Call her pdoc for some anxiety meds and explain to him the situation. She will need that to get through the week- maybe? For her sake, and yours. You know her limits of anxiety and the levels. Call her pdoc if necessary.

I've had two heart catheterizations for WPW (Wolfe-Parkinsons-White Syndrome). It is frightening when ones heart does things out of the ordinary.

Thinking of you and sending you many prayers.

Re: MUD news (poss heart attack)

Re: MUD news (poss heart attack)

Oh my goodness. At least whether it was or wasn't you're seeing the docs. Really good luck that it's nothing, but i'm sure it's a big scare. Time to reflect?!!!! Even if you get the all clear?!! Re your wife, I seem to find that quite often when I'm called on by close friends / family in their crises, I respond pretty well. Sort of calm and organised, but break down later. So I agree with Kathy, as long as her pdoc is aware of the situation he can take some of the strain while you deal with the tests and diagnosis. You have to make sure that you don't 'worry' about her at this time (as difficult as that will be) it can make heart / bp readings go awry....

All the best xxx

Re: MUD news (poss heart attack)

Mudhound, did they give you a prescription for nitroglycerin? Carry it with you and let your wife know that you are. And don't try to belittle her fears. Mr. Ruth kept telling me to stop worrying - not possible.
Also, telling your wife to take deep breaths will not help!
It is a YEAR after Mr. Ruth found out he had a 99% blockage in his left anterior descending artery (a.k.a. "the widowmaker") and had a stent put in and I am still aghast at how close he came to having a massive coronary.

Every time I think about it I get a wave of anxiety that I could be without him.
As highly as I function, and I know your wife must feel the same way, I know that I would go directly into a depression so deep that no one (with an exception or two ) could coax me to the surface for a good year.

PLEASE take care of yourself - you are one of my oldest and dearest friends and HealthBoards has much more use to make of you... Do You Hear Me?????

A huge hug across that virtual cup of coffee,
Ruthie

Post Re: MUD news (poss heart attack)

Thanks for your concern. Yes indeed, the wife has stepped up her watch on Mr Mud. I have her watching my every move. Dang, It's hard to see other females while she's looking. LOL JUST Kidding.
I feel much better today. I have had no other chest pain. However, I have had a little bit of shortness of breath. It's mostly after doinf things that do tend to wear down the average person.
She has so anzity meds. Heck, I've even hit a few of my own too.

I let the board know the results of the heart dr visit. Bad Gas, yes that was it, Or Mr MUD loose weight and the other normal items. Or take this pill and see me in a month. Or to the Heart cath thing or whatever.....

Thanks for your support, The people on this board are the GREATEST!

Mud

Re: MUD news (poss heart attack)

Hi Mudhound
I've always admired your open concerned and thoughtfulness regarding your wife's condition. Ruth is right you cant stop a bp from worrying but one thing that helps me is feeling like I have some control to feel useful. I think it's wonderful your wife has is now watching you, it may help her to take care of you plus it would help her to take her mind off her own problems and ease her worry regarding yours. I wish the best for both of you. Take care of yourself. K

Re: MUD news (poss heart attack)

I went to the heart doctor and got a clean bill of health.
His main concern was my weight. He says "Mr Lawson you are a bit short for your weight". LOL I knew that. Gosh, I paid money to be insulted. LOL I can get that from home for FREE.
Ishould last a few more year! Who raaaaaa!
