A few weeks ago they thought they heard some heart palpitations, an irregular irregularity, at my doctor’s office so they referred me to a heart center. I thought they were hearing things. But decided I’d get it checked for their peace of mind.
The heart center called after getting the referral and we set up the appointment. When I told the person on the phone the situation surrounding the supposed palpitations she agreed with me that pretty much everything is irregular for me right now and it was probably nothing.
I had the appointment yesterday afternoon. The only other person in the waiting room even close to my age was a health assistant there taking care of a very old person.
They did an electrocardiogram and you have never seen anything more regular in your life. Every single heart beat is exactly like the one before.
They listened to my lungs and told me I have great lungs. They listened to my heart and told me it sounded beautiful. They found out I’ve never smoked, I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t use caffeine, and I don’t add salt to my food and told me I’m boringly healthy. The only thing they could say is my blood pressure is just a little low.
Given my past history of going to the doctor it was kind of nice to go to one and be told I am perfectly normal.
