If your having neck pain ...read this.

This isn't really a question ......just wanted to let you all know that I had bad pains in my neck when I walked for a long time.  I got a ct scan which showed I had a pinched nerve and problems with the discs.  I chalked it up to my neck being the problem  Found out in June ....wasn't my neck after all ..it was angina !!!!   Something I had suspected for a long time but the drs and everyone else I told said NO.   Well I was right and they were wrong. How did I find out ?  well I went to ER one night when I was having neck pain and afib (fast heartbeat) and the dr on call decided to do blood tests.  Voila ...all there.  Got a dye test 5 days later ..one artery blocked and the 2nd one 98% blocked.  I was lucky.  Now when I walk ...no pain in my neck at all.  Hard to believe. All I'm saying ..get it checked !!  Women don't have heart attacks like men ..we get it in the neck, shoulders and arms too.
