I had to go for a treadmill-stress test today....ever had one? If you didn't have a heart condition before starting the test you'll have one for sure when you get off that thing!
As many of you know I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, fun-fun! Well for about the last three years I have been getting short of breath, I had a normal echo cardiogram right about the time the shortness of breath started. It still comes and goes and is really pronounced when I am very fatigued or when walking and talking at the same time & I LOVE TO TALK!!! My primary care doctor spoke to my rheumatologist and they decided that maybe I should have this test done to check blood flow to my heart and to rule out Rheumatic Heart Disease...I don't think I have that, I just think that maybe sometimes I get tired and just need to slow down!
And that's exactly what I told the doctor that kept cranking up that stupid treadmill...just a bit faster, the incline is going to go up just a bit more...faster now faster...
UMMMMM doctor, pufff puffffff ahhhhhhaarrghhhh excuse me I can't feel my lips.
Your lips, are the numb and tingly?
Can you breath Mrs. Platt?
Not really & don't call me Mrs. Platt.
Well just try to keep going.
Mrs. Platt, are you o.k.?
NO...I can't feel my face and I am lightheaded, stop asking me questions because I cannot breathe and you are making me use valuable oxygen....
Mrs. Platt get ready to jump off HURY JUMP!!!
Are you kidding me JUMP! I'll jump right out that window ~ Jerk....
How are you doing?
Seriously, how am I doing, how do I look like I am doing????
Yes, that is how the exchange between patient & doctor went...he just smiled :) I am cranky I know it & I apologize Doctor Korbin. That's o.k., you did great!
Well, after that I needed a nap! Did I get one NOPE, had a few extra minutes to myself so I took in some much needed Retail Therapy ~ ahhhh can we say Happy Girl!
