Well turns out my trip to the ER wasn't something to blow off. I went to get my results from my doctor today, and it turns out I have a legitimate heart problem. I went into the doctor's office and she read over all my test results from the ER visit. She wanted to do another EKG in the office, so I was patient, and complied. I fully expected her to come back and let me know that the EKG just registered a fast heartbeat. The doctor came in and sat close to letting me know that the EKG was abnormal. She said it's registering Ischemic events with my heart. I understood exactly what that meant, I said " a loss of oxygen". "Yes" she replied. She said she wanted me to start taking an aspirin a day, and immediately get in with a cardiologist.
I asked her what she thought caused this problem, and she said she was unsure. I explained how difficult my pregnancy was with Jude, and that was the first time I ever experienced high blood pressure. I know it was still a bit elevated after the delivery because my OB had taken it in her office. She then explained my pressure probably never went back to normal, and that it has now caused damage to the heart.
I am frustrated! I feel like we cannot catch a break. I choose to believe this will be nothing serious, but prayers would still be appreciated.
PS. My aunt LOVED Jude's nurse, which makes me feel great.
