athelind: (YAY)
... an hour after my last post, I was in the ER for chest pains.

An overnight stay, lots of bloodwork, and a treadmill exam, and the cardiologist gave me a clean bill of health, at least as far as the ticker is concerned.

So it's all good, more or less; I just wish I'd held off before dropping a fairly hefty chunk of change on closing out that student loan, because now: MEDICAL BILLS.

Yay!


athelind: (food)
What the frak CAN you eat anymore? Meat's bad for you. "Carbs" are bad for you. There we go, that's pretty much every frakkin' organic molecule.

As I was sitting in the Urgent Care, I noticed that they were position-dependent -- if I leaned back, they settled down and went away. Over the last couple of days (now that the hypochondria/anxiety has gone away) the pains have gone away completely -- so long as I sit up straight, or lean back slightly.

...did I just get an EKG and an expensive blood test for poor posture??


I don't think so, honestly. There must have been some trigger; there's nothing about "bruised esophagus" hypothesis that's incompatible with position-dependence. But, jeez.
