Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Bit worried. 3 to 4 hour long angina pain from 3 someting am to 7am this morning. Worst ever experienced. Swollen extremeties for more than a month. Sudden severe headache, jaw aches, neck aches (come and go), palpitations, feeling faint after even minimal exertion such as brushing teeth, getting up from chair, etc. This is very sudden in the last week. Mobility has been a problem with RA and PMR but this is different.

I think Kat's passing has knocked the wind out of my sails. She was only 5 years older than me.

Saw GP nurse two weeks ago. She couldn't get any of her BP monitors to work on me. Just scolded me about needing to get more exercise.

Saw GP this morning. No diabetes - YAY! Cholesterol only tiny bit high. He put me on Beta blocker and angina under the tongue spray. I ordered a BP monitor today. Will collect from Boots on Sunday.

I started near vegan diet beginning of the week, cut sugar, salt, dairy, and caffiene. Rediscovered Grape Nuts. YUM! Scheduled for ECG noon Tuesday day before we leave for Sidmouth folk week.

Cutting it fine, eh? Good will and energy please.
