Second blood tests went in right direction - less of the nasty protein stuff in the blood than in the first.

They threw me out in the wind and rain . . . But I only had to wait ten minutes for a bus to town. Where I treated myself to egg, bacon and chips.

Good news! Glad you're OK.

Thanks again, Hermes.

That was quite a scare, Dave! Glad it turned out ok!

(admit it, you just wanted to ride in the ambulance, didn't you? :grin: :P ;) )


I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Tsk, forgot you speak American . . .

'Cuppa' or 'cupper' = 'cup of (usually) tea"

Mint infusion in my case.

Feeling A3 now thanks, DL, (haven't been A1 for 20 years) just a tad tired after a long night, but feeling fit and safe enough to do light jobs in workshop.

But was not going to take any chances last night.

Glad you are at home and feeling better. Don't overdo it in the workshop!  :foottap:

No, nursie!

Thinking back on it after diversionary occupational therapy and a long, meditative, soak in the tub.

Started about 3.30am. I had gone to the loo and could not get back to sleep - a common thing for me. So I went online on the forum see what you lot were up to. As often, with nothing practical to occupy it my excuse for a brain went into pseudo-intellectual mode. . Felt perfectly OK, nothing to really bother me - until a sort of tension in my abdomen and a, "I don't like this" feeling. Looking back it may have been a random anxiety attack, I had them after the shocks from my ICD. Then it was full blown flight or fight, so I 'fought' (can't fly far in a smallish room), shadow boxing on the spot, but with leg work and ducking and diving, whilst reciting the whole of my cursing vocabulary, in creative combibations, until I felt knackered.

The symptoms can be confused with those of heart problems and, inevitably, they interact, can create 'positive feedback' as each 'feeds' the other. My blood pressure was going from <90 to > 120 and back over shortish periods. Previously it had hit >150 from ~80 and I felt both high fear and anger.

I have not had a full blown anxiety attack for several years now, but that does not mean they have gone away. It may have just been a randon thing - hope so. But I will learn from this experience, as I did previously.

Then, perhaps I had been suffering from delayed banana withdrawal. The last thing I eat every day, about 8.30pm, is part two of my daily fruit ration - the banana. Since I had had a large glass of vino and half an olive loaf during the evening I had left out those extra calories. Oh, woe. I will have my fix tonight for sure!
