So I pushed my electrophysiologist to get another echo, since we are coming up on 2 years since my last one. I hate tests... They scare me like crazy and waiting for the results, well its just torture but... It was my idea so, this afternoon I go for my echo. He thinks one every 3 years is fine etc.
Still have this stupid eye twitching, going on 3 weeks now (off and on). My primary care said its seen a lot and no biggie, I go to see my eye doc this weekend for my annual eye check up and will mention it to him too. But when I called, they brushed it off too, said it super annoying and super common. That bothers me too.
I always fear the worse case scenario and am never able to just "wait it out and see." All part of my anxiety no doubt. While my anxiety is general is much better (I no longer have panic attacks thank God) when it comes to my health, it spikes. I have been like that for 7 years now. I notice my body sensations, google (yea I know I shouldn't but I can't help it) and of course Dr. Google always shows most horrible results. LOL FEAR FACTOR!
Working out is going great. I workout typically 5 days a week, sometimes 6. Monday and Tuesdays are my 2 hour nights, pretty intense stuff, Kickboxing, weight lifting, RIPPED and Body Step. I probably burn over 2,000 calories in those 2 nights alone. Wednesdays is zumba, so is Thursday. Friday I run 2 miles on the dreadmill and Saturdays is Zumba and weight lifting. My rest days are Sundays It feels great, I am still not where I want to be and I still have 25 pounds I need to drop but I am getting there. My blood work came back and my cholesterol dropped 21 points (which it wasn't considered high to begin with but I watch it since it runs in my family). It also dropped my HDL which they said is normal from cutting out fats etc.
So seeing results is very nice. I am hoping within the next 6 months I will be where I want and need to be.
Anyway, heres to getting a good email from my electrophysiologist telling me the echo looks good and hopefully I can move on from this a bit more
