JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Doc Time

[ #21085 ]
I have seen the doctor.

He agrees that it's probably GERD and not an actual heart problem, although he did schedule what I believe he referred to as a "stress echocardiogram". More on this when it's available.

    I asked my doctor to check the state of my heart two years ago, and had one of those echo-thingamajigs performed.

    Now considering my state (or lack thereof) of physical fitness, I was surprised that I passed with flying colors.

    • My calves are pretty tight these days. I'll get right on that. Do you remember roughly what they had you do?

      I think I was a little overweight before this happened, so now it's a lot worse than it really should be. :(

      Uh...shaved?! Shaved. Where? All over?


      You are what you think.
      • They put me on a treadmill, and increased the incline and speed every few minutes, checking my blood pressure as they increased the incline.

        And no, not shaved all over, just the spots where they attached the leads for the echowhatsis. If you're hairy-chested, you're going to be in some discomfort.
