No. I’m surely not having a heart attack.
But, for whatever reason since going back to physical therapy today for the first time in almost a month, I’ve had shortness of breath and chest pain all day that hasn’t quit.
Tom was asking if I was having a heart attack so I looked up the symptoms (I mean I had a general idea) so I could prove to him that I wasn’t dying.
The Six Heart Attack Symptoms Common in Women:
- chest pain or discomfort
- pain in arm(s), back, neck or jaw
- stomach pain
- shortness of breath, nausea, or lightheadedness
The list made me laugh because I have all of those pretty much every day. I’m sure the chest pain I experience is quite different than those actually having a heart attack of course.
Either way, it made me giggle a bit.
Don’t worry though, I have EKG’s done all the time and I have been eating honey nut Cheerios for years! Everyone knows they are heart healthy, it says so on the box!
P.S. Michael Phelps beat that snotty pompous guy tonight, so maybe he can finally retire now. Oh and Michael, I beat you to retirement. I don’t know what took you so long.
