So I went to the Cardiologist yesterday and she is convinced that is not a cardiac issue ( that is great right ? ! ) but she is not going to stop .. she is going to see whats going on. She read my history and she knew something was going on. Unlike some other Dr. who felt the need to tell me in the hospital that maybe I should see a physiologist !!! (ASS) Isn't that always the way, the minute they can not figure something out with you its all in your damn head!!! I can not stand people like that or should I say Doctors who do that! It just pisses me off !!! & by my surprise the Cardiologist felt the same way as me. She too felt what that Dr. said was WRONG!!!!
So she heard my history, read about my history and was even shocked that the hospital did not admit me the first time it happen. She said they are lucky nothing happen to me! But thankfully the second time it happen another hospital admitted me ( I just happen to be at work when the second episode happen ) For awhile I started to believe that just maybe its all in my head, Maybe there really is not something wrong with me and I should just eat better and go to the gym more! BUT she made me think other wise!!! She did an EKG ( everything was good ) She did an Echo ( Everything was good ) she is now doing a 30 cardiac heart monitor.. which means every time I feel like my heart is beating fast, or I have palpitations or what have you to stick this small thing to my bear chest ( it looks like a beeper ) and record my rhythm.. then once that is done call this 1-888 number and put it to the phone and it will transmit the rhythm to the computers/dr on the phone! Now how cool is that?? !!! I started this yesterday and thankfully I have not had to use it yet. I do get palpitations but that could be from anything!! Well anyways .. she thinks she has an idea of what it is .... It's called PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA I hope it is and it isn't because its not going to be easy to just make go away, it will require surgery and keeping an eye on it .. what it is in plane and simple terms .. it's a Tumor on my kidney !! THOUGH its not or at least only 10% of it is cancerous!!
So in order to see if this is what I have we have started a test .. it's a 24 hr urine test. ( oh joy I get to pee in a big orange container with acid in it ... lol .. well I get to pee in a Solo Cup ( LOL ) and then poor it into the container.. it's like playing with my own chemistry set .. LOL ) Have you ever smelled urine mixed with acid .. yeah it does not smell that great at all ,.. Worse then a bus or subway station in the City of NY!
Next week I am having a Cardiac Stress test .. just to be safe! But if my urine comes back positive (for whatever they are looking for ) then my next step should be MRI or CT ... I just want this all over with .. so if it is that .. Thank God they finally figured out what was wrong!!!Well in the mean time .. my damn fingers are starting to bother me from all this typing .. so I am going to have to say Good Bye for now !!! LATER!!
