Mystery of the Internal Vibration

A very interesting day to say the least…

Mornings are usually very tough for me but today was completely different. I woke up around five o’clock and felt like I could run in a race. I had a glass of warm water, a bowl of oats and it was off to work. I was so happy about the way I was feeling because I’ve never felt this good.

For lunch I had a tuna sandwich with apple juice. It’s something I’ve had on a regular basis from the Coffee Time downstairs. Around two o’clock I start feeling lightheaded, I feel “weird” like something is going to happen and the internal vibrations are a bit stronger. I have a burning sensation in my chest and I notice that my mouth is dry. The only thing I’ve done differently is I didn’t drink as much water in the morning and I forgot to take my Vitamin C.

So I take the Vitamin C and start drinking lots of water and splashing it on my face. With the acupuncture doctor saying I should follow up with my regular doctor for the high blood pressure, I really don’t like the feeling so I leave work to go to a walk in clinic.

I take a taxi to the nearest one and I fill out their patient form and wait. I have my water with me so I make sure I’m still drinking. I go to the bathroom three times before he sees me and I don’t appear to have any of the strange feelings I had earlier in the day. I tell him about the high blood pressure and that I’ve been monitoring it and he talks a reading. 130/80 Normal range. He listens to my lungs and says everything sounds normal. He offers to have an ECG done if I’m concerned about it so I agree. It’s been eight months since I had my last one and back then the only symptom was the internal vibration.

The nurse takes a reading and after a while the doctor comes back with the chart. He shows it to me and it has a small variation in the rhythm. I tell him about my right bundle branch block and he agrees that it’s probably the case and says he is only trained to know what a normal ECG looks like so he’ll send this to a specialist to get his opinion. He also says he wants a blood test just to make sure. If the heart is in any kind of distress, it will release traceable enzymes. He said to follow up with him next Wednesday the 29th for the results.

I’m looking at the blood test form and he’s written the letters “CK, TSH, LDL and HDL”

Because I’m in the same area as the acupuncture doctor, I drop in to see if there are any side effects from the cupping procedure. My doctor doesn’t start until five o’clock so I start talking to another lady. I tell her my story and she explains how the treatment of acupuncture and cupping could not cause my chest pain. She explained things very thoroughly and I’m happy with what I am hearing.

I’ll die another day.
