Where did I go?

Oh there I am! :) 

Ok.... my health. So last Thursday I was driving home and had some visual disturbances. I was seeing flashes of light and had to pull over... my heart was pounding so hard and I swear I was about to pass out on the freeway! So I went to Urgent care and they told me I had PVC's premature ventricular contractions. Apparently these are pretty normal, but still they can be very annoying! So they suggested I go to the emergency room, so I did. The ER didn't think it had anything to do with my heart but that it was probably migraines with no pain! Go figure right? I had never heard of such a thing lol... so I got a catscan which I think was normal. All in all they said it could also be anxiety. 

So on Monday I saw my primary care Dr. who listened to my heart and said it skips a beat every now and again. True I can feel this and it's horrible! So she referred me to a cardiologist who I saw today. I told him everything that had happened and he basically said it could be due to low blood pressure. The blood doesn't go to my brain fast enough so that's why I often feel dizzy... also your heart can beat faster to try and pump the blood. So I'm going to try some pills for that and on the 23rd I'm going back in for an ultra sound of the heart and I get to wear one of those fancy heart monitors for 24 hours lol FUN! 

I also have abnormal urine again... which I swear I have ALWAYS had! I started thinking it was no big deal but my Dr. tested it again and said no... we may need to refer you to a urologist... Ok I really didn't think there was such a thing :) so I'm waiting on that. Doesn't it always just seem like a waiting game??

I also have been having headaches almost daily :( I think it's my job! Staring at a computer all day surely can't be too healthy. So we shall see. I'm sure I will be just fine, but I'll keep ya guys updated :)

The next doctor you see just tell him what I tell mine..Fine jack up the hair and put a new body under it...He just looks at me and shakes his head...Sometimes to keep from worrying about all this you just have to get a sense of humor about it..:)
