Well, I just got off vaction and had to go to the hospital the day I flew back. The two evenings before I couldn't sleep because of shortness of breath. Thought it was asthma. So I got some Primatine mist but it didn't help much. So, I went in and it turned out to be congestive heart failure! My B/P was 178/120 121 pulse. My ankles were swollen. [fluid buildup] I was pale and tired. My sonogram [organs] showed OK, the heart echo showed no bad heart valves, and the heart cath showed no blockages. They tried to talk me into a defib unit but I had just read this months Consumer reports which talked about these units being recalled, and the new replacements having problems [leads breaking off]. I declined so all the doctors came in to try to scare me into doing it. After I asked for a written guarantee, they left and discharged me. So, fellow monkees, if you are experiencing pain or any of these symptoms ecpecially adema get checked out. I hope this helps someone here. I'm going to take a couple of months off and write some music and get more joy in my life. Must be a spiritual blockage.
