Glad you're healthy - it would be a shame to go so close to 1,000 posts ;)

I know how you feel mack. Several years ago I thought I was having a heart attack. I convinced my young wife I was dying and she rushed me to the hospital. Turned out to be my gall bladder. Had that sucker taken out the next day.

Sure you will agree lawman.
It is the worst feeling imaginable

Glad you are fine mack.
My family also have a heart disease history. I think about it every month. I try to adjust my life habbits accordingly, and have a general medical exam every year. So far so good.
It is sometimes hard to deal with external stress, usually from professional life. This can be a trigger to heart attacks. Humor, is the cure.
Wish you many, many posts back here.

mack, I'm sure glad you're OK. That can be pretty scary.

LOL.. Mardi_Gras, I can't believe you said that! It just shows how inculturated we become.
It's also in my family, but it mostly hits the men - in their early 50's. I get an occasional twinge and I think that's what it is; I generally get into bed for a day and start thinking of what'll happen to domain names registered to me if I kick off. Plus, when my time comes, I'd much prefer that it be AFTER an update, not just a few days before. I'd never rest in peace not knowing.

Mack, so glad you are ok. It is the scariest thing to go through. We have heart disease in our family also. I had some pains in the chest area a year ago, really scary - turns out it was a hiatal hernia which caused asthma. Whee - couple of emergency room visits and cardio tests for my doctors who were convinced it was my heart - being told I didn't have heart disease by the heart specialist was great to hear.
Always advocate for yourself - push for tests - because sometimes the doctors really don't know what is going on.

Glad to hear that you’re o.k. Mack…it must have been really scary.
Im a bit of a hypochondriac so I always think im dying, if I suddenly had heart pains Id probably have a heart attack on the way to the hospital from stress:) Im a doctors worst nightmare:)
