Me at the Doctor's Office

What the doctor said:
Steven, you have an abnormal EKG reading. We' determined you
have an incomplete right bundle branch block. It mean that there' s a
delay in messages going from your brain to the right side of your
heart. It doesn' t seem to affect your heart at all and as long you don' t
develop any other symptoms you should be fine.
What I heard:
Steven, you have a heart defect. While this really shouldn' t effect you
we wanted to let you know so you can be about it the
rest of your life.

I see people with bundle branch blocks all the time at work (complete ones, too). Most of them continue to live perfectly normal lives. Worry not, friend!    
   
Also, just to nitpick- your bundle branches receive signals from the SA node down, not from your brain... the heart's cells are autorhythmic.

listen to what the doctor says, and don't be a pussy. keep active, stay in shape, and don't stress your heart out too much. you have a heart condition, but it's not like you have congenital heart failure or high blood pressure.
User avatar #64 to #60 - mookiez (04/23/2013) [-]
If he has the same thing I have then high blood pressure comes with it. Being fit has nothing to do with it, I'm very healthy I work construction every day, heavy lifting etc. I still get heart palpitations every month. I'm going to be going into the army soon, and I know I will still get my palpitations in there. It's a strange feeling when it happens.
#68 to #64 - sirbrentcoe (04/23/2013) [-]
they're gonna let you in the army with a heart issue? they wouldn't let me in because i was born bow-legged. i also have flat feet, though. I really wanted to join up back when i turned 18. good for you going into the army tho man. he didn't mention high bp, so i assumed he didn't have it.

User avatar #69 to #68 - mookiez (04/23/2013) [-]
The high bp comes when I start having the palpitations, The highest it has been is 210 over 180. But the heart problem is not life threatening, so I guess that is why. I never really understand why they don't let people in with flat feet. But I do not plan to be a infantry man, I plan to be a electrical engineer while I'm in there. I would be in there right now, but they won't take my G.E.D with almost perfect scores, So I have to get 15 hours college credits, That being said I am in my class right now. The semester is almost over, like 2 weeks left then I get my credits.

It signals from the right atrium to the right ventricle that would be blocked not from the bloody brain!
Sorry... medical errors annoy me.
User avatar #52 to #49 - piesgood (04/23/2013) [-]
Was literally just about to say this. The heart is completely involuntary, there is a little node in the right atrium called the sinoatrial node that is pretty much your hearts pacemaker and starts the electrical signals by itself. The only effect your central nervous system really has is to speed it up and slow it down. As you said, it would probably be something in the bundle of his between the atrium and the ventricle, and have absolutely nothing to do with the brain. Thank you, good sir!

I have a severe mental illness that requires me to take many kinds of pills a day to stay sane. It's horrible, knowing that I need those pills to live. My mother has to work longer to keep me on her insurance to pay for them. I'm 21 and I don't have insurance of my own because I wouldn't be able to afford it, and therefore, my meds. It's disgusting and I feel tainted because of it. I don't want to have children, because it's a genetic disorder, and they will have it too. Nobody IRL knows about my condition. I've gotten fired for it, lost friendships over it, and lost relationships over it. Nobody can know.

when i went to the docters office:

doctor: im sorry but you have arrhythmia. its an abnormally fast heart beat. chances are your going to die when your around 50 and thats only if you dont have to run for the rest of your life, because if you do, youll have a heart attack. oh, and if you do live longer than 50, your probably going to get alzhiemers which runs allong with this disease.

This sounds similar to something that happened to me.

Since I was 15 I'd always get really sick once or twice a year. REALLY ******* sick. Since it was always the same symptoms, but never the same time of year, I went and asked a doctor what was up when I was 20, because it was really bad this time around. Turns out I'd had strep for 5 years and it was now working it's way into my lungs. I was told that as long as I continue to eat right, stay in decent shape and avoid narcotics, my immune system should be able to handle it and I'll live a long, happy life, with the occasional pain in my chest because I'm now stuck with the strep(though I can't seem to infect anyone else?). Then he decided to let me know that when I'm 30 (22 now) I should probably start doing bi-annual physicals and cardiographs because there's a teeny weeny chance that by then the strep could decide to move into my heart where it will slowly, but efficiently break down the walls of my heart and I will experience the most excruciating pain I could ever imagine while I die over the course of a few days.

But it's only a slight chance, 2% tops, I shouldn't pay it any mind...

What the doctor said: We're going to have to run some tests. These tests include running a camera up your urethra to check for any scarring that may be in your testicles.

What I heard: I just stuck my finger up your ass and soon, we will take pictures of the inside of your dick. Have fun trying to return back to society as a teenage boy who just got a ******* prostate exam.
User avatar #36 - frky (04/23/2013) [-]
Doctor: You have Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, a pre-excitation syndrome which is usually asymptomatic and we'll just have to run some tests by putting you under anesthesia and running a tube the width of a piece of spaghetti down your nose to look at your heart.
What I heard: we're going to put needles in your arm that'll make you have to pee 20 times in one day and stick a bunch of weird **** up your nose while you're unconscious lol

My doctor said I shouldn't work out until I'm in better shape.
I said, "Don't send me the bill until I pay you."

The doctors did this to me once. Now I'm worried about having an underdeveloped rib cage. Hypoplastic ribs don't affect much but now that I know they are there I can't help but to feel like my breathing is wrong and I'm extra squishy compared to other people.. Why must doctors do this to people?
User avatar #31 - craftyatom ONLINE (04/23/2013) [-]
:O
We can be right branch bundle block buddies!
It's "harmless", but that little rounded top to your EKG feels like it eats at you, I know.
