tight chest



i have  been waking up a feeling like there is a band around my chest. it seems to lessen as the day goes by. my doctors recommended a nuclear cardiac stress test . i guess my heart is ok because the cardiologist didn't think anything was wrong with my heart but they just wanted to cross the ts and dot the eyes, and one of them would have called if something was up.my energy is up so i've been doing a lot of work in my yard. so we will see what happens. i see the cardiologist on the 15th. if everything is good, the search will go on

no change in the way i feel, starting to get a hacking cough with little or no mucus. talked with my pulminologist and p.c., who have been in phone contact with each other at night and they decided i needed to talk to a cardiologist and take a cardio stress test. i meet with him next wednesday keep your fingers crossed. i feel fortunate that my doctors call each other at home after i've seen one or the other. i feel blessed, but this time Lord you gave me a mountain.

steroids



i've been feeling weak for a while, and i'm seeing my P.C. and Pulminoligist every week lately. i used to see them every 2-3 months so i'm getting quite concerned. my PC gave me another 5 days of anti-biotics. my pulminoligist put back on prednisone for 3 weeks and wants me to call him every week. i hope i don't have to go on prednisone full time. he thinks because i was on such a high dose with my flare-up my body is still withdrawing from them. who knows?
