Dam**t! lost an entire afternoon of painting. Was just getting into the rhythm and on target to finish another painting today when my Heart went pitty-pat. Problem was, it didn't stop. I had had another episode earlier this week, but it went away quickly and I forgot about it.
10 minutes...not going away. made a management decision to call 911. A bit of nitro sprayed under my tongue, 4 baby aspirins...and a couple of VERY non-flattering grunt face exercises did nothing to bring it down. Atta girl. Stay the course and remain constant and consistent! Oops. not necessarily in this case!
Officially 'Supraventricular Tachycardia'. Heart rate a very consistent 250, so I guess I didn't cry wolf! They gave me something that brought it down, but that was a horrible feeling...Andenocard. Room full of people apparently were pleased when they could tell it was working...I kept hearing them saying, 'Yeah, it's working!' Apparently they can tell by your eyes...
Then I had all the lab work and x-rays and stuff...all was fine. Reminds me of when our laptops begin to run excessively loud and racing and the only way to stop it is to take out the battery and restart!
Bad thing is NO ONE filmed all this for YouTube! I kept them all laughing, though!
