    Well Its not in my nature to post a prayer request for myself but my family has a history of heart problems and lately I've been getting chest pains in the area of my heart the pains never last long but when they happen it hurts like nothing else. I'm going to the clinic Monday morning to see what this is and could really use a pray that it Isn't a major issue.

    will send a prayer.

    It is wise for you to have a cardio workup.

  4. Hi again

    You are so wise. Age is not important. Cardio situations can occur at any age.

    I am glad you are not reporting pain shooting down your arm. That is a classic heart attack sign.

    Early diagnosis opens the door for treatment with modern medicines. The trick with a cardiac problem is early diagnosis and treatment. It is highly likely you can live a long and productive life by getting help now.

    I say a daily prayer for all of my G&G brothers and sisters, but I spend a few extra minutes for guys and gals like you Copper.
    I wish you the best of luck as I know all about being in that situation with the whole family history hanging over your head.
    God Bless,
    Tim

    the heart condition thing isnt as big as the family issue of high blood pressure but just thinking if its both at the same time could probably be a very bad thing.

    I'll say a prayer for you David. Glad you're checking it out. Might be something very minor, too...and you wouldn't want to be worrying needlessly.

    You don't want to be driving your truck or doing anything else which could result in serious side effects.

    Id like to thank everyone for the prayers early this AM roughly around 2 or 3 in the morning I went into the ER. According to the doc I have a really irregular heartbeat due to my use of Caffeine pills a few years back and that's supposed to be whats causing the occasional chest pain and he suggested i take some Aspirin on a regular basis so I've picked up some Bayer. I was told that if the pains persist that are any more painful i should check myself in otherwise i should just enjoy life.

    Well, I would still follow up with a specialist. Not saying the ER doctor is wrong, but I feel like their specialty is dealing with gunshot wounds, stabbings, car accidents and might not be the best to advise you on cardiac issues. Just my 2 cents. Keep the change!

    Best of luck to you.

    .22guy I'm from a town of less then 8,000 people our ER doc also works in the main clinic and deals with more than gunshot wounds and stabbings etc.

    David...Glad to hear your good news. I picked up on your comment about "irregular heart beat." I used to get that, too. After a lot of testing by docs it was determined I needed to be taking "Cartia XT," one 130 mg pill each day. Miraculously, that stopped my irregular heart beat immediately.

    My symptoms were: heart beat was double speed...blood pressure was half normal. With the Cartia XT my symptoms went back to normal.

    May be something to look into for you, too.

    Regardless, hope you'll keep checking on your symptoms until you're sure you've got the solution permanently.

    Joe
