I went to the doctor last Wednesday to get a checkup, inasmuch as I've been having pains in my chest for a little while now, and they haven't dissipated. We're confident that I'm not having a heart attack, but, since my blood pressure is high (which it has been since I enlisted in the Air Force in 1996), they decided to put me on Toprol, which is MUCH better than being put on Torgo. We think the problem is muscular, but since it's been so persistent, I got to go talk to a cardiologist, who noted my EKG had a normal sinus rhythm, which goes to support the conclusion that there's nothing wrong with the ticker.
Anyway, I get to do the stress test next month, and apparently I get to be shot with radiation again, and be subjected to several ECGs. I can't wait. At least I get to miss a day of class for it!
Perhaps I need to find a nice, low stress job in the country.
