Well let's see...since beginning nursing school
years ago I have been self-diagnosed with lymphoma, MI, colon cancer, brain tumor, basically anything that was in the textbooks we discussed in class. If I could find a similar symptom, I had it. Also, whenever I had a patient close to my age I became paranoid of "getting" whatever they "got." Crazy! :icon_roll
Now, my husband thinks I'm nuts as does my doctor I'm sure, and my husband never takes any symptoms to heart, he just laughs it off as another "episode."
Just the other night a couple nurses in my unit decided to hook themselves up to the heart monitor b/c it was a slow night. Of course I did it too and was worried about my ST segment for ischemia. Normal. BUT...a nurse friend of mine AND myself did find a RBBB on our EKGs of which I will probably have to go see one of our good 'ole cardiologists just to make sure its insignificant....here I go again!
