I was driving to work a few houts ago to check my work schedule for next week when I suddenly felt an intense stabbing pain in the right side of my chest. It was there and gone after a second. I thought nothing of it at first, but then it happened four more times over the next couple minutes. By the time I made it to work I hadn’t had any more stabbing pains, but I was starting to feel pain on the other side of my chest and my right armpit. My pulse was about 100/minute and I was starting to get scared. I decided to turn around and drive to urgent care, but I got caught in rush hour traffic and it was starting to feel worse, so I turned around and drove to St. Joseph’s hospital in Tacoma.
They’ve x-rayed me and done an EKG, and working on blood cultures. I’m lying in a hospital bed right now hooked up to a heart monitor waiting to hear what’s going on with me. Pain is still there but not as intense as an hour ago.
I barely have any bars in here so my ability to check this thread may be sporadic. Will post again as soon as I know more.
