So what exactly is your concern here?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

u still dont know that i have a deadly blockage and my body warns me that i will have a heart attack. but every day when i work in the store i see obese people who buy horrible stuff and they dont even think about stuff i now think maybe i starve myself and my body will just shut down. i dont know if i told u my second job now i teach pre k full time and in the store part time i do like it i meet people i love being with kids but all these thoughts r killing me

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
So what will get you to let go of the somewhat silly fear that something is wrong with your heart?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

so u can explain to me again whybit is npt ,y heart in ur opinion. also how long u think i can be with no meat no dairy its been two weeks

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Your symptoms don't match a heart problem. You've had heart studies in the past that were fine. Most of this is anxiety and reflux. What is it you're eating now?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

today ate cereal now eating special k pop chips and olive tapenade humus. last night ate some walnuts.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
OK--but what else in the way of veggies and fruits?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

a usually an apple a day anpear, peach banana. begies would be onion garlick pepper broccoli. carrotsi eat barley rice qinua granola bras things like that am i kiling my heart

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
How is this killing your heart?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

maybe not enough food because i have no dairy or meat or fish

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Where did you get the idea that that would harm your heart?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

internet tvu tell me i am just sick of feeling like i cant take a deep breath it comes and goes and my upeer back hurts too

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
That isn't your heart and you need to stop with the internet research. No meat and no dairy never harms the heart. The diet you're on right now is fine and healthy so stop worrying. Time to close the page with a rating
