The Quest for Truth on the Internets

I have found myself with some rather grody and disturbing symptoms as of late, and considering that my years spent watching Grey’s Anatomy have failed me, I have turned to the Internets to diagnose me.  What did we do before modern technology allowed the thrill of instant  diagnosis?  Perusing under one of my symptoms of “shoulder pain,” I stumbled upon the following list of symptoms for a heart attack:


Squeezing chest pain or pressure
– Shortness of breath
– Sweating
– Tightness in chest
– Recurring chest discomfort
– Pain spreading to shoulders, neck or arms
– Indigestion or gas-like pain
– Dizziness, nausea or vomiting
– Unexplained weakness, fatigue
– Discomfort/pain between shoulder blades
– Sense of impending doom

The site admonishes–if you feel this way, call 911 immediately! Uh, that is how I feel 99% of the time when I wake up with the children jumping in our bed and sharing their morning joy not to mention breath.   Hmm..I wonder if the cute cops in our neighborhood deliver coffee?
