actually, she did say some about pvc's , but, I didn't know what she was talking about and she didn't come back in for me to ask. What are they? She was saying something like missing decimals and then talking pvc's.
The only pvc I know about goes in plumbing :o)

Ok I read what they are, but, the doctor went through the panic attacks and stress stuff. I have had a panic attack before, I get them when I have to drive on the highways and it starts when I get on the entrance ramp. These are different in a way that I can't describe. Hopefully, they will find that is all it is. I can deal with that.

LOL - yeah - PVC as in Premature Ventricular Contractions, not polyvinal chloride.

In a panic attack or stress situation you "probably" just feel your heart racing ... but "probably" what you're feeling with these episodes is more of a heavy thumping in your chest, and secondary shortnes of breath and maybe some dizzyness if they persist for more than a minute. You may not know how to describe them ... but did I get close?

Just curious - do you live in the DFW area, and did you get the inspiration for your original self-diagnosis of "Supraventricular Tachycardia" from a TV commercial that has been airing recently? I caught part of it this morning and couldn't believe they were airing that!

Just a week to go till you get some real answers ...
