I need to do more of this journal writing "stuff."
I really feel like it can be calming and bring inspiration, but when I sit down to type, I'm not quite sure what to tell you, internet.
I will tell you that today was a little scary.
I was making a sandwich for a little girl I nanny and realized I felt fairly dizzy.
Then my chest started to hurt and I felt short of breath.
All great signs, huh?
My chest or "heart" hurting isn't new to me... I've suffered from it off and on for two years now. My doc diagnosed me with costochondritis, but I don't really think that's the issue.
Today was a totally different kind of mess. I felt really scared and strangely disoriented.
Lincoln was at school, so luckily we have really awesome neighbors (and really great mother in laws to find neighbors) and she took me to the instacare.
I've always had really low blood pressure and really fast heart rate. With the accompanying chest pains, this to me doesn't sound like a good combo. I'm not a doctor, but ya know.
So they did an EKG and X-ray and seemed shocked to know that my primary care physician never did these tests with my symptoms. (Can't wait for that medical bill...)
And the tests said all was well. Which is comforting, but there are probably a billion other tests I can do to see if there is something wrong with my good ol' heart. I just wish I could find some answers, because I'm sick of not feeling 100%.
Fatigue, headaches, chest pains quite frequently... not exactly fun.
After reading and researching online today, I kind of have a feeling I might be anemic. I have all the symptoms and my lifestyle could explain that (I'm not the best eater... I get distracted easily).
So we will see...
Any of you out there in the interweb have an opinion on this? I also think maybe it could be anxiety related??
Hopefully we will find some answers soon...
