I've sharpened my sword, and polished my armor, and I am ready to get back into life again. I am in the process of totally refurbishing my house from top to bottom, and I finally FINALLY know what was causing my chest pains. BRONCHIAL CONSTRICTION. Can you believe that? It was only after a repeat trip to the hospital by Freedom Township Ems on Wed. night and having to stay in step down CCU at St. Charles Hospital that the solution finally came to me. I had yet another Persantine stress test yesterday, and the pain was so intense in my chest it made me cry. But the cardiologist who was on duty this time, was really on the ball, and said that while my heart looked fine, Persantine sometimes constricts the bronchial tubes, leaving a person to think the pain is cardiac related. Well cardiac wise I'M FINE. And my bronchial constriction can be treated medically. I'm taking Serevent diskus BID, and I already notice a difference. I'm just so thrilled to know the answer to my chest pain. Wow! What a load off!! Now, I have to concentrate on finding a shrink, ahem, pardon me therapist to work thru the rest of my issues. Won't be easy, but will be worth it. Look out world, cause this warrior's back to fight!!!
Love to all, WW.
