On our street there are all kinds of families. Other places we have looked for jobs are nuclear family towns. What effect on a child growing up there?

Up to you: Of course we all want to live like the waltons, but for most that won't happen. How your children respond to people around you will depend much more on you than on them.

Get Nuclear Scan : Before cardiac arrest, treat patient as this is not a hospice or "comfort care only" patient yet. Offcourse, goals of care need to be discussed with the patient and primary decision maker/proxy but pulmonary embolism is a high symptom burden disease, diagnosis will lead to treatment (which could be low dose coumadin), which will further prevent embolism extension, severe breathlessness and pain. ...Read more

I have lots of chest pain and family history of heart attacks at young age. I've had EKG nuclear stress and echo.Should I still worry its continuing?

Dont worry: You should not worry but you should get it further evaluated to determine the cause. Common conditions would include costochondritis, chest wall muscle spasms, referred pain from gall bladder, and artery spasms. You should get a holter or other continous ekg device to make sure you perform an ekg during an episode of the pain. ...Read more

U R Really Suffering: Living in a state of perpetual doubt takes its toll. And your primitive brain regions, in an effort to protect you from harm, are sounding a steady stream of false alarms. But those same primitive brain regions are very convincing as they are so freaked out. The higher thinking areas of your brain sound exhausted by this. Suggest learning about ocd - how it works.
