I developed severe fatigue on the afternoon of Sunday August 4, 2018. MiniDSP sent me a new EAR unit because I thought mine may have been damaged during shipping (one channel was a few db off below around 1kHz after calibration). I very much wanted to test the EARS so I could post some results before the work week started, but I just couldn't. I dropped on my bed shortly after a light lunch and woke up in the evening around 7:30pm, still slightly tired, to go out with my family to dinner. After dinner, a light fever (chills), muscle aches, and minor chest pain (left side), set in. I just went to sleep. These symptoms carried on to Monday, where I was only able to work a total of four hours sporadically until I decided to call it quits. The chest pains became more severe and Julie insisted that I go to the hospital in the unlikely case it was a heart attack. I figured since it was on the left side, I'd take her advice. I insisted that she drive me in the Charger Scat Pack (the fastest "be a Redneck bitch and punch it" and most comfortable car in our household) to the hospital. The date and time of our arrival at the ER was Monday August 5, 2018. 6:30pm. While at the ER triage desk, the nurse asked me "what's bothering you?" The second I said "chest pains, left side" (I was pulling out my ID), the ER staff rushed me in immediately (who cares about all the other people in the waiting room if you are having a heart attack right?) They took my blood pressure which was a little high for me at 126 / 86, but to them that was totally normal. My heart rate was 88bpm though - it's normally about 66. One nurse said that common blood pressures of people they see in the ER are like 170. Yikes. They did an EKG and that looked normal. And took about 11 blood tests, 21 other tests, and scheduled a CT scan with the iodine injection for higher contrast images. The doctor ordered the CT because he wanted to make sure it wasn't an aneurysm or blood clot, since I had just gotten off the plane from a vacation in Michigan three nights ago. By the way, the iodone injection makes you feel warm all over, to the extent that you feel you might have pee'd all over yourself. The doctor looked at the CT scan and the few blood tests that had been done by now. He assured Julie and me that I did not have a heart attack. BTW, the doctors and nurses at this ER are so awesome. Their mannerisms remind me of the characters on that ER TV show with George Clooney. Grey's Anatomy is a little bit too melodramatic to be real - most of the characters on Grey's would eventually have burned out or been fired. The bad news is that I had a moderate case of pneumonia in left bottom lobe of my left lung. I did get to see the CT scan and remarked that the spot was relatively small. The doctor explained to me that the concern was the area was completely opaque instead of having little dots or swirls. I had to be admitted. Fuck.
