This past Saturday I made a trip to the ER. It wasn’t to visit a friend either. It was because I thought I was having a heart attack. I know we’ve all heard that if you even think that you are having a heart attack to get medical treatment.
The first time that I thought I was having one was in Kentucky. I was passing through on my way home and just had this feeling that I don’t know how to describe along with chest pain but after a few minutes it went away. The second time, I was in Wal-Mart Saturday afternoon. Nothing unusual and that same feeling come over my body. I went and found Tish and told her that I wanted to go to the hospital. I did change my mind several times during the next little while but finally went.
Upon arriving at the hospital, I got checked in and was called back almost immediately. They took my vitals and all that good stuff. I was taken to a room where they hooked me up to an EKG and oxygen. Soon after, they took some x-rays and blood. After all was said and done, I didn’t have a heart attack and my cardio checked out but the cause of my chest pain is still unknown.
I shared this because I want you to check out the warning signs of a heart attack. You can find them at the American Heart Association’s website. Take a look around here and get more education about your heart. It could save your life. If at any time you think you are having a heart attack get to a hospital or pull over and call 911. I was lucky and didn’t have one but I wanted to make sure. You make sure too.
Thanks for dropping by today and hope to see you next week.
