Response to Original message
64. Thank you everyone! An update:
i went to my GP today just to see what he had to say.

He took my BP and it was 133/78 pulse rate 75
He said my heart and lungs sounded fine.

He thinks it is just panic attacks. Told me to cut out caffeine, sugar and to stop smoking would be a plus put trying to stop at this minute might add more to the stress so he said to take it easy with smoking.

He suggested exercise and when the attacks happen to breathe and try to do something to take my mind off of it.

I am also going for blood work tomm. Someone mentioned a thyroid problem and he said that could be a reason and the blood work will check for it.

Thanks again for all the advice, suggestion and good thoughts.

You guys are the best! :hug: :loveya: :yourock:
