Ronnie do not waste time about making an appointment. Make it now that you are in Aruba so you do not waste time when you get home and you will be all set when you get home. I had quadruple bypass 14 years ago so I think I know what I am talking about. Call today. Do not over do it in Aruba. Rest and walk. No heavy lifting of anything over 12 oz. :lol: :lol: :lol: Actually, my cardiologist said nothing heavier than a gallon of milk.
I can not be more serious than I am about making the appointment from Aruba.
Take care Ronnie.

How scary.
I agree with Froggy....call TODAY for your appointment.
Do you take an 81mg aspirin everyday?

Holy crap, Ron!!
Maybe it was an anxiety induced episode?
Hoping this vacay vibe is just what you need to relax & unwind.
Like everyone above me has said...get your hiney to the doc when you get home.

How scary!
If you start feeling that way again Ronnie......straight to the hospital you go.
That is nothing to mess with or hold off.
Like froggy said, get that appointment made there! Keep an eye on him Sue!
Take it easy!!!

Ronnie, as much as I want to think it was your anxiety to carry that liquor aboard the plane :lol: , you do need to get this checked out as soon as you get home or, sooner if symptoms resurface in A@uba.

Geez Ronnie, that's scary. I'm glad you're ok now, but get right to the dr as soon as you're home. I'm sure Sue won't let you ignore it.

:shock: :shock:

so much that I could say...but won't!!
If your EKG was good, then there is a little less to stress about. There are other things that could cause this besides your heart, but listen to what's been said, and listen to SUE!!!!

Thinking of you! Don't brush off warning symptoms/signs. Get checked asap when home.

So yesterday was all I could take as far as the pains in my chest. Sue called the front desk and they immediately came up. Asked me if I wanted an ambulance,I declined, they said there is a cab waiting that would take me to emergency medical walk in clinic. This was about 6:00pm. Doctor did an ekg on me and said everything looked fine. Then listen to my chest and said I was extremely contested and then mentioned COPD me. All the congestion in my chest is causing muscle contractions which is putting pressure on my lungs which is causing pain in my chest. I have a prescription for 4 pills I have to take. It was fun finding a pharmacy open on a Sunday at 7:30pm we did find only 1 opened but they didn’t have all 4 pills, only 2, said I could try the pharmacy right next to us here at the HI for the other 2 on Monday. Got back to the hotel at 9:00pm. We did find the important one this morning that will break up the congestion in my chest. Have to take them 3 times a day. So total cost was
Cab rides $80
Doctor visit $250
Prescriptions $160

Still need a B complex pill which they did not have either one of them.
And yes, I know what I need to do
