Went to the doctor and he made an appointment for me to see a cardiologist on the 20th. He didn't seem to think it's going to be a serious problem, but we'll see.
Thanks for all the nice comments!
Just so that everyone is aware - I'll be going to the doctor tomorrow morning about some very severe heart pain and weird palpitations I've been having. I've had this same problem off and on for a few years and it normally happens a few times a month. I've been to the doctor before about it, without having realized what the palpitations were, and we thought it was acid reflux, but as the medication for that (or even just tums) has no effect, and I've noticed the odd pulse, I'm convinced now that it is something else. We'll see
in any case I may not be around as often until I'm feeling better, so if you need me for something (articles, notes, whatever) please be patient
Hope you're all doing well!
