when it rains it pours. as if dealing with chronic pain and associated issues pertaining to multiple spine surgeries isn't enough.

i was just told that i have a heart problem, and have been referred on to some specialists for evaluation, diagnoses and treatment. it seems that one side of my ticker is not functioning properly. i will not speaking any further of it now as it is making me anxious . . . :SS

just a bit wigged out. :( thanks for listening.


  • sorry to hear about that situation. man it does seem like that at times. try not to get too anxious if you can. work with your drs and find out exactly what is going on and know that there are alot of options for management today. i wont go into detail right now because of the way you feel but when your ready to talk feel free to come here for support. lots of medical people on this site that can do some interpreting for ya. big hugs. :)
  • Sorry to hear you have a heart problem. The most important issue is that you have a diagnosis and the Drs will be able to treat you accordingly.

    I know it can be tiring to get more tests and perhaps medication and to go to the appointments can take a lot out of you. Try to relax and take it one day at a time and deep breaths. Vent away here anytime. Saying a prayer for you and hugs. Charry
