I asked my heart doctor that last week, as I have had those
flutterings lately. And some are more noticeable than others.
And he said there was nothing to worry about. He said al-
most everyone has those at one time or another.
Now I do know if I have too much caffeine, I will get those.
So she maybe should limit her coffee and tea and pops'
that have caffeine, which is all but 7 Up and Sprite. I re-
member when my mom used to have those. And she was
afraid to lay down to sleep. So she sat propped up on the
couch. And her doctor told her it was nerve
didn't have heart trouble. It went away on it's own tho after
a week. I wouldn't worry about your mom having a heart
attack. My doctor also mentioned it was pretty much the
same for a woman as a man in the symptoms of a heart
attack. And he said the pain lasts up to 20 minutes. From
the way he described it, it's alot stronger than a pinching
sensation. Don't stress
yourself out. She might have a long
wait in the ER so don't get upset if she doesn't come home
very soon. They will check her vitals first and see how im-
portant her case is, and then if they think she needs to be
seen fast, then she won't have to wait long. Try to sleep since
you have school tomorrow probably. I'm sure your dad will
wake you, if she had to stay for observation overnight to tell
you what happened if anything.
Oh, and if she smokes, try to get her to quit. This could be
natures way of sending her a message. I had more than a
few, before I listened to my heart.
