I had severe left-sided chest pain this evening, but I had that a year ago and nothing was found except occasional very fast heart rate, thus the atenolol. I can't remember if they did an EKG last year. They did a monitor and an MRI since I was allergic to CT contrast, though the insurance co wouldn't pay for the MRI contrast.
So I took an extra atenolol since I'm on a low dose and can take 2. I feel better now. I'm wondering if I should be more worried, but since I'm currently working with seven specialists--
-and don't forget physical therapist--
I really don't want to add cardiologist back into the mix. I'm hoping the allergist can deal with the shingles, which have popped up again (no stress, none, really). Is it really any wonder that I let the dermatology, endocrinology, and ENT issues go? Or that I can't find the time to meet with the psychologist to deal with all of it?
I generally try to do triage with myself, only one specialist and major issue at a time.
How did I get into this boat? I want off, I'm swimming back to shore.
