I woke Monday morning to sharp chest pains and they didn't go away. It was an intermittent pain but sharp and strong. What to do? I finally woke my niece and she called 911. The paramedics did the usual tests, it didn't appear to be my heart. So I had my very first (and hopefully last) ride in an ambulance. At the hospital, more tests including chest x-rays. Bottom line, it wasn't my heart or lungs. When I left the hospital 5 hours later, I was still having pains every few minutes. The doctor has referred me to a cardiologist for further testing just in case. The pain ceased around 8pm last night.
Back to regular programming.
