I'm glad your GP called you back and told you to go to the ER if you have any arm or chest pain. I hope this is nothing serious and you do well during the night. I'm glad you are getting this checked out tomorrow. Let us know what the doc says and don't hesitate to go to the ER tonight if needed. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
(((des))), bless your heart. I'm glad your chest x ray came out ok. You have every right to be upset. I've cried when doctors have talked to me too. Hey you have been through alot and now they are asking for more. It's stressful. We all feeel like and do cry somtimes. Hey the meds might help. You know stress can cause chest pains So maybe it's a good thing he gave you somthing for depression. It might help get rid of the breathing problems too.
Thank you for the update, No need to feel stupid at all. I think we have all done it.
Please keep us updated.
Tks for updating us. I'm glad the doctor is sending you to a cardiologist to check things out. Awww... I have cried several times in the doctors office. I think things just build up and when we get some new symptom that scares us, we break down when we least expect it. Don't feel stupid, I bet alot of others have done this too....(((Hugs))). I hope the Lexapro helps.
I hope you get some answers soon. Keep us updated and take care. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Is the Spirometry test the same as a Pulmonary Function Test? Just curious.... .
Des, I hope you find out soon whats going on and get some relief.
I was just curious...I had several PFT's when I had lupus pneumonitis. The office I work in does the pulse/ox test on patients too. It's pretty neat!
