Wish Me Luck!

Wish me luck, everyone...

In a couple of hours I'm going in for a cardiac stress/treadmill test. I must tell you that I'm more than slightly nervous about it. My Dad has had two and he says they're no big deal... on the other hand... one of the gentlemen that Eric works with had one and says that they do their best to get you to have a heart attack...

Can we all say... "Trembling in our boots"??

I went to the doctor in the beginning of July because I had been feeling completely exhausted for a while (plus I have heart palpitations once every day or so), so the doctor ordered this test (along with tons of blood work), but today was the first appointment available...

So off I go - if I'm gone for a while, you'll know why - but lets all hope everything is fine.

Good luck Liz! I'm sure you will do just fine. Let us know!
Also, did they do an iron study on you? I was seriously ill with iron deficiency anemia before it was diagnosed. They should also check for Pernicious anemia (that's a defeciency of vitamin B). Both of those conditions can cause extreme fatigue. Iron deficiency can also cause heart palpatations.

Thanks ladies - everything turned out just fine. It really was no big deal.

I was only on the treadmill for about five minutes - didn't even break a sweat!

Doc said everything looked ok, no blockages or irregularities... but he did say I needed to work out more to get into better shape - guess I've been officially scolded!

Thanks again for the kind words.
