So Judi, when is the stress test? Do you know what kind you are having?

My boss is having the "chemical" stress test in 2 weeks. Apparently, they couldn't get anything conclusive after the normal stress test so he has to go for the more detailed one.

I've been hearing more often that a regular, "old-fashioned" stress test doesn't really tell you much unless you're have a very apparent problem or, but I don't know if that's true. When I had heart symptoms, I never got that far. I just had an echocardiogram done.

Christine, just the regular exercise stress test. I asked my doctor about the radioactive one and he said my insurance company would only pay for that if the ECG or any of the tests I had done in the hospital were abnormal. I have the test next Wednesday, a week from tomorrow.

In any case, I'm feeling much better today. I have a feeling my problems might have been muscular, because I had a massage last night and miraculously the pain in my back went away. I'm still having the test done though, better safe than sorry!

As I said before, if nothing else, this whole scary episode has given me a wakeup call. Life is too danged short to sweat the small stuff. When I had my overight stay in the hospital I spent most of the time chatting with the husband of my roommate, who was in there after having back surgery that caused some problems with her breathing, so they were watching her heart. She was 53 years old, and had already had a brain tumor, a quadruple bypass, and 4 prior surgeries on her back. Makes one count their blessings and value their good health a lot more. I went for a nice long walk at lunchtime today, instead of sitting on my butt like I usually do. It made me feel better not only physically, but mentally too.

Thanks again for your support guys. This board is so great, I am so glad its here.

So happy to hear your upbeat post....I will be taking your advice as well. I seem to always "sweat the small stuff", and not realize that while doing so, life is passing right by..

Good luck on your test next week.

That sounds exactly like what I had last summer. I thought I was developing back problems - something I've never had a problem with.

I also know about being scared. My mother died of breast cancer that spread to her lungs. I nursed her through 2 1/2 years of hell after it had spread. When I went to the ER in July they did a CAT scan and told me I had spots on my lungs. I went for my mammogram a few days later and got bad results.

I was totally convinced that I had breast cancer and that it had already spread to the lungs. I spent the last six months of 2006 in distress - not helped by the fact that several people my age died from sudden illnesses.

I had pneumonia - most likely fueled by my GERD. I have to take antibiotics once a month for a year. And a needle biopsy identified the breast problem as a cyst. Turns out I am not dying just yet. But it was a BIG wake-up call.

Right after I found out that I was okay, I discovered that a long-time friend really does have breast cancer that has now spread to the bones in her back. Which I am sure you do not have as a massage does NOT make that kind of pain go away.

I can relate arminnie. Those types of worries have been on my mind since being diagnosed myself with breast cancer three years ago. Taking care of sick people for a living also doesn't help my frame of mind sometimes, but I try not to worry about it too much. Right now things are good and I've learned to live for the day and enjoy the present. I'm sorry about your mother, but glad everything was ok with you.

That's probably the best advice for all of us.

I guess my biggest fear is not that I will get breast cancer, but that I will not find it early enough. At least a half a dozen of my friends friends have had breast cancer. It's been 8-10 years for them, and they are okay as it was found early.

My mother was 65 when diagnosed and had never had a mammogram. She was the kind of person who only did what the doctor told her to do. I've learned to be a lot more pro-active in my health care.

I hope you continue to do well.

Judi, I have just come upon this thread. My prayers for you!

I too have had episodes of Heartburn that scared the pants off of me. Then I pulled the ligament that goes around my chest. Then when I had my last little guy, my heartbeat dropped to 42 and they made me wear the 24 hour monitor!

All of this happened within a year or two of my mom's cancer treatment, and I was so vulnerable to fear.

Good job, taking care of yourself! I'm glad you are feeling better, and again, a prayer said for you!
