I must apologize
I didn't mean to alarm everyone by posting and then disappearing.
On the day after I posted, I had an appointment to discuss my symptoms with my PCP, as my EP had recommended. But when I woke up the morning of the appointment, I had severe GI symptoms. I felt so rotten, any cardiac issues were shoved to the back burner. We discussed cardiac issues only to decide to table them.
One abdomen C-T scan later, the diagnosis was diverticulitis. Since then, I've been between the bed, the bathroom, and the sofa. I haven't felt well enough to post anything. With 20/20 hindsight, I believe the diverticulitis had been brewing for a while, but I had been treating every symptom as one-time upset.
The antibiotics seem to be doing their work, slower than I would like, but the worst symptoms have abated. Still, the anti-nausea med keeps me too sleepy to do much.
I am alive and I'll be in touch soon.
In the meantime, I am more touched than I can say by the concern and caring so many of you have expressed. Thank you. Thank you.
You know you're wired when...
