Be sure to keep us posted Sandy. I am sure everyone will be praying for ya.
Thanks Matt, here's the update. What I was diagnosed with is Atrial Fibrillation, it's when the atria quiver instead of beating properly making the heart beat irregularly. As to why this happened in most cases they don't know. but some factors include: Thyroid disorders, diabetes, high blood pressure(hypertension), excessive alcohol consumption and cigarette or stimulant drug use (including caffeine).
I have 2 of those factors, I'm hypertensive, even though I'm on medication and I have a sluggish thyroid for which I'm on medication too.
All the blood tests showed I did not or never have had a heart attack, but know I have to watch for this if it reoccurs. If you want to understand what I went through and the treatment involved, you can read this:
This really explains everything you want to know.
I was released yesterday afternoon, and will return to work on Monday. Damn, having blood drawn three times a day over four days makes you tired
Thanks to everyone for their prayers and good thoughts.......love you guys you're the best
