Lead Vest at Dentist’s Office

I went in for a cleaning and x-rays today. When they put the lead vest over me before taking the x-rays, I immediately got dizzy, felt anxious, I felt like my heart was being paced like when they test the device. It was the weirdest thing ever. I sat up, took off the vest, put it next to me, and sta...

West Nile Virus

Just curious here. Does anyone have any information on how the West Nile virus can affect our heart conditions? I’ve been spraying myself like crazy the few times I’ve gone outside because the mosquitoes are so bad by me so I haven’t gotten many bites. But it got me to thinking of what the possibili...

Re: Replacement ICD

Al I am loosing it.... I don't think you're loosing it. This happens to me every day and YES! it's very frustrating. Not sure why it's happening.

Re: SOB

I'd still take the water pill anyway. It will help sooner than waiting for the water to go away on it's own. And if it's not actually the water causing the SOB, then at least you will know in a short period of time. That will help your stress levels.

Re: OT - DOCTOR DILEMMA

You know, I was waiting for Robo (I'd LOVE to see a helmet smilie...wouldn't that be great?!?!?!) to say something about the prostate thing. Didn't sound right to me, thinking on the simple side I wanted to question the doctor, but then again, also thinking on the intellectual side maybe there's som...

Re: What's up with that?

When I first received my ICD, doctor said it would last about 10 years. When I went in for a check this last time, doctor said I have 12 years left. I've had the ICD for 3 years. When I asked him about this, he didn't really have an answer. I'm just as perplexed as you :) My hopes sure are high that...

Re: Teenage Son to be fitted with ICD

I was diagnosed in my teens with left bundle branch block. I was a competitive swimmer and was told to stop immediately and to just sit around. I wasn't allowed to even take the stairs in school. I didn't accept this answer so went on to find a sports cardiologist who said if it isn't bothering me t...

Re: OT - DOCTOR DILEMMA

I'm so sorry you have to go through all this. I absolutely can't stand those doctors who think they know it all. punisher There's a reason the GP wanted to be a GP. If he wanted to be a cardiologist or an oncologist then he should have. Makes me SO MAD when they don't listen to what you say and when...

Re: My Grumpy old woman side came out again

Your post was beautiful! It wasn't demeaning or rude or anything like that. The underlying message I got is, "Put your big girl panties on." :) I had joined a similar group, and it may be the same exact one, and ended up leaving it because the women were so negative and seemed to just want to argue....

I first read your post and then replied....now that I've read through all the pages, I see I'm terribly late to the party LOL It was a good read, and although I didn't take notes to remind me of what I read, I get the gist of what all happened; actually not joking here, my short term memory is compl...
