I was on here earlier describing my heart problems. Well I went to the cardiologist and he took an ECG and he said it was normal.
He listened to my heart and told me the valves sound normal. I described all my symptoms and he said it sounded like it was a problem
unrelated to my heart. He said it could be muscular. I will take a stress test this Friday and he said that will give him more clues as to why I have stabbing pain and pressure in my chest. He said for now, everything seems to be normal. My blood pressure is still a bit high.
But I have meds for that and I had skipped a few days.

So it looks like I might be out of the woods for now.

I am taking this as a second chance at life and a second chance at trying to eat right and everything.

Thanks for listening.

Good Morning and I am so glad your tests results are coming back normal.



May I suggest that you ask your physician for a referral to a Registered Dietician to discuss a healthy eating plan for you that is doable. So often we set our goals so high they are hard to obtain so a realistic eating plan along with an exercise regime would be in your best interest.



I think that all of us no matter what our problems are benefit from nutritious diet.



Please do let us know how the stress test turns out.



Gentle Hugs,



Kitt

Thank you Kitt,

I certainly will let you know how the stress test goes. I'm a little nervous, don't want to fall off the treadmill, lol.

As for diet, I know quite alot about food and different healthy eating styles, I just have to buckle down and do what I've learned.

Thanks again for the advice and the hugs,

Hugs back,
