We are in a blizzard and I am having chest pain with a pulse rate of 110? Little history of today and the last month. I had to call and reschedule my Nuclear heart testing today.*they closed anyway at noon do to road conditions*. I have had bad chest pains and numbing in my arms and my hand. My pulse rate keeps going to 110 and I swear it skips a little bit at times. When I went to the docs last week they scheduled the heart clinic and I went for first consult. My Doctors office called with my cholestrol test at 9am. Now there closed to at noon by the way. Results 268, HDL-41, LDL-168, Tri 297, They called to say they were giving me Lipitor and what place to send it to. Like it matters I cant get to it. lol They told me to take the xanax as I needed. But they never told me to take the asprin at either visit. Should I take some ? Could it hurt without knowing what exactly is going on with my heart yet? I just want to lower my pulse rate and help with the pains I have in my chest. Calling the Er seems dumb for this. (Since Doc is closed) Oh I want to add I have a medical background. I am studying to be a Doula.Also work as a CNA. I feel so scared and stupid asking this. But I know little about Heart problems.
