Oops wrong pumpkin :mrgreen: in the gay community I'm known as a het, or sometimes a fuckin' het. eg: This is a gay bar, piss off you fuckin' het!

In my defence there was no sign saying gay bar, the dump wasn't painted pink and I didn't see the Village People look alike contest tonight sign until it was to late... :mrgreen:

Yesterday, on the way to work I thought I was having a heart attack. Was taken to hospital. Found out that it wasn't a heart attack. Went home and felt better.

They couldn't tell me; but at least I found out my lungs, heart, liver and other innards are in fairly good shape, which considering the way they're treated is very nice of them.

Actually, I'd put it down to a revolting Chinese Pear Wine I keep for emergencies (the emergency was that the white wine I was going to drink fell out of the fridge and smashed on the kitchen floor) which I drank the night before. Even though it was disgusting, I had two rather large glasses.

Fore shame you didn't stop at one. ...and just back from France. Bet you can't even remember what a good Chablis tastes like after that. Chinese Pear en Regala wine, drink it up yum. :|

Be careful, and maybe get a second opinion, about 6 months ago a 40 year old friend of mine in good health thought he was having a heart attack, so he went to the hospital to have it checked they said not a heart attack relax go home and go to work; next day he had severe chest pain collapsed at work ambulance came, ....he died on the way to the hospital, heart attack.

The ROXY thread calms me down actually - I find it very zen; rather interesting in a very boring kind of way.

Thanks for your concern, BRAVO - they did tell me to go for a fuller check-up - which I will do soon.

Yea we never know when it's time to die, my 40 year old friend was in better health than all of us, his wife is litigating with the doctor he went to........does any one really know what time it is?

Yep. But not just yet - for none of us, I hope. BTW she'ws right to press charges, IMO.

Caputh, you really should take better care of yourself! You still have young kids and a wife who need you! Have your checkup done as quickly as you can. And become a blood donor, then you get a free examination four times a year and you do something good for your fellow man.

I finished work on my knitted mammoth. He's neat!

A friend of mine, a couple of years older but arguably fitter than myself, woke up one morning feeling a little dizzy, whilst shaving he began to vomit, so went back to bed. His doctor made a house call that day, the diagnosis was an inner ear infection, take two asprin and get some bed rest...A day later he was rushed to hospital, he didn't have an inner ear infection, he'd had a stroke. He's been in and out of hospital a number of times since, while they try to get his medication sorted. He now tires very easily, even walking down the street makes him nauseous, he's on the mend, but will probably never be able to work again.....

Don't delay Caputh, get that second opinion and get it NOW!

Here endeth the lesson.

Thanks for your concern everyone; I had an electrocardiogram that revealed I had no heart problems at all. Lungs (amazingly) were also ok. The doctor advised a colon scan as my uncle died of colon cancer, so that's still to come.
Seems like it must have been really, really strong heartburn -difficult for me tell as I've never had it before.

I hate to go on about this but my friend also had an ecg, and a stress test, all ok, I believe that an angiogram is the best way to see blockage, that is I have heard that ,not being a doctor. Ok i'll leave you alone now.
