    im much, much better now but about 1:00 p.m i started having chest pains while playing over at 3 dice, didnt want to get jim upset as he is still under the weather so i had my son in law drive me to the hospital, they did the e.k.g and took alot of blood, thank god it wasnt a heart attack but i am suffering from extreme stress, i havent been eating right and i have anemia. also they said i had a bad pannic attack, which can mimic a heart attack, we ended getting back home around 6:00 p.m, not to bad for being in the emergency room. i thought i had those pannic attacks under control, it really frightened me alot and i want everyone , and i mean everyone if you have the slightest chest pains, please go get it checked out A.S.A.P, i was very lucky indeed, someone else may not be so fortunate...............please take care of your health..................always, laurie:)

    The strangest thing is that I too, today (well, now yesterday) after lunch around 1:00 p.m. just like you, Lauriejim, started to have some heart palpitations that got me scared.:eek2:

    I was at work so I took my herbal heart formula quite heavily. That calmed my heart down. I ran out of Scotch whiskey so I bought some more after work. Scotch is good for stopping heart attacks and strokes immediately for it opens up the arteries instantly. Old-timers in the past used to have relatives with heart problems take a little sip each day. I'm not saying they are the substitute for seeing a doctor but I believe modern heart medications make the problem worse in the long run.

    Look after yourself

    Take a day off and go to the beach. Pack some bread and liver pate (for your anemia), hard boiled eggs (ditto), one of those one serving sizes of wine and some nice ripe peaches (you are in the south). Don't forget to pack lots of water. Wear your SPF 30, bring a trashy novel & a blanket to sit on, and leave the rest of the world behind you.

    If you soul needs restoration, I suggest you go alone.

    NO LAPTOP OR CELLPHONE!!!

    Damn Panics

    Good ole panics, your post reminded me of the first time I had one 20 some years ago...I too thought for sure I was having a heart attack and they didn't do EKG or anything on me so I continued for a couple years (on and off)still having chest pains or papilations (being scared) until one doctor finally told me that it is extremely rare that a woman has a heart attack before she goes through menapouse, which at my age that was a ways away for me and still is, i hope :), anyways after I was told that, I didn't have those pains or papilations anymore...our great minds can play some great tricks during a panic or before the panic :eek2:. I'm glad you went to the ER and got it check out and thats all it was, now take time for you and relax and do fun stuff for yourself :thumbsup:

    thanks everyone for the kind words, i sure was afraid yesterday, i had forgotten how fast those pannic attacks can come on, i guess our bodies have a way of telling us we need rest and to take life abit more easier. i have had my rest for the day, dont know what they put in that i.v but it has a foil like after taste, yuck!! im sorry babs i didnt call and i will lay off the starbucks, started drinking organic soy milk, its really pretty good, the doctor that took care of me said that women have a higher chance of dying from a heart attack than men as they will dismiss it as something else and when they do get to the hospital its either just in the nick of time or too late, thanks again ya'll for letting me ramble on...................laurie:)..p.s yes win , i smoke:oops:

    Hey Laurie, your panic attack didn't have anything to do with your play at 3Dice, I hope! Or if it did it was because of a HUGE win...???? ;)

    Seriously though, I have a heart condition (bad valve) and I've had it all my life - sometimes I get palpitations really badly and the one thing that I swear by is aspirin. I always keep baby aspirin or regular aspirin around - when I feel like my heart is overworking I take one and chew it up and lie down with my feet up until it subsides. I'm not sure if it would help with a panic attack but it might...?

    ***Disclaimer***
    I'm not recommending that anyone do this until you get an ok from your doctor - you can't take aspirin if you're on blood thinners or anything like that. I'm just saying that it works for me, and studies have shown that chewing an aspirin even once a heart attack starts can stop it or lessen the damage.

    Im glad your ok hun. My oldest one was rushed into the er here in toronto with same symptoms severe chest pain and couldnt breath. We got lucky they put him in a room right away and gave him what they called a pink lady. a drink for heartburn later we found out it was due to panic attacks that create the heartburn.

    Now this is going to sound silly but it really does work. Always carry paper bags with you buy the 50 pack of the lunch bags. Keep them in the car by your bed stand and a few at the computer. When you start to feel a attack coming on breath in and out into the bag slowly.

    That paper bag thing isnt silly at all Lauram. Its a good idea. People have been doing that for ages. It really does help slow your breathing down. I had to do that one time.

    Hopefully Laurie is laying down like she's suppose to:D I talked to her a couple of hours ago and she sounds pretty good but tired at the same time.
    I think the meds were still in her system because she was pretty funny lol
