I've just been signed off for a week due to chest pains. I'm not allowed to lift, stretch, sneeze or cough (?!) in case I make it worse. So I am sitting still and only one hour into it am bored off my bottom.
After being pressed and prodded several times, at the mercy of freezing cold doctors fingers I was given the verdict of costochondritis. This has inflicted me pain before,several years ago and to the untrained chest muscles, it can be mistaken for a heart attack. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costochondritis. Thank goodness I'd had it before and knew what to do.
I feel insanely guilty for letting the most beautiful family down and not babysitting their gorgeous boys but I have to put my broken body first in this instance. Sometimes I wonder who got all my health luck!
