RE: Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
Ok, you all freaked me out enough that I called for an appointment. They are going to get back to me shortly.

That said, I'm convinced I'll be fine as long as I don't go to the doctor. It's like taking your car in for service and suddenly you need a new engine.

It could be something simple like muscle strain. It could be something much more nefarious - scapular pain with shortness of breath? A chest x-ray, EKG, and some blood work could rule out a huge host of problems. You should be able to get this done in the doctor's office.

Just...there are a lot of scary, FIXABLE, diagnoses that come with those two symptoms (pulmonary embolism, acute coronary syndrome, aortic aneurysm...). I've even seen cholecystitis (gallbladder) present similarly, although I don't consider that one scary. Not everyone presents textbook.

*Wouldn't you feel better if you went to the doc, find out it's no big deal, get told it's a muscle spasm, get handed a prescription for some muscle relaxers, and go on about your day?*

If you start to develop any of these symptoms, log out of TTA, skip the doctor's office, and get to the ER:
-pain radiating down your left arm or to your left neck and jaw (go ahead and call 911)
-increased shortness of breath at rest
-increased shortness of breath with mild exertion
-pressure or squeezing in your chest (go ahead and call 911)
-increased left scapular pain
-nausea
-profuse sweating (go ahead and call 911)
-I figure if you start to feel a ripping sensation, you'll be calling 911 without hesitation.


You know what, log out of TTA anyway, and at least go to the doc.

Thank you.

Ok, I have an appointment tomorrow at 1:30.

As a secondary point, you all are worse than my wife.

Yea well, that was going to be the next strategic phase:
No slap & tickle, humpy pumpy, snuggly snuggle from anyone here, without your doctor's note.

Seriously? What?! Since we're all a bunch atheists so we shouldn't give a shit and applaud your lackadaisical approach? Do you really think so little of us?

We just care about you. Hug

RE: Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
In all honesty, I did not expect this response. I hadn't actually considered what response I did expect, I just posted it as a stream of consciousness kind of thing.

So, thanks all for caring (Muffs is excluded from this because we both know he doesn't)

Get your arse to a hospital dumb arse. Take it from a guy who in 3 1/2 hours finds out if he is going to live or die.
