We have a few problems here, Debilitated:
a. You are asking for specialist medical advice, when we are amateurs. This is why we encourage you to turn off the computer, pick up the phone, and call your doctor or your hospital or an ambulance if you are concerned. We are not doctors and we do not know you personally, and a lot of us worry that you could endanger yourself by asking people online for advice rather than your doctors.
b. This is a Crohn's forum. You are asking for heart advice. This makes your posts somewhat off-topic and the moderators would, theoretically, be justified in deleting them. I honestly think that you should be taking these heart questions to your doctor, and then to the heart disease and the anxiety forums. The people on those forums have more knowledge (and personal and professional experience) of your symptoms than the average Crohn's patient, and will be more able to help and support you.
Please, Debilitated, don't rely on us. We worry for you, and the best way we can look after you is to encourage and encourage and encourage you not to ask amateurs for advice if you are so worried, but to consult with your medical care team instead. They know you, and they are the ones who are most likely to have the answers to your questions.
