The Tell Tale Heart?

I got the infusion yesterday, everything seemed to be going well and I was done in a decent amount of time. When we left at 10:30pm however it felt like I had been swimming too much and too long. Thinking it was because I was bed-bound for a couple hours I proceeded on home. 2 hours later my chest was STILL feeling like I had done some sort of deca-thon or mara-thon, so I called the consoluting nurse hot line and she said to go to the ER. Thus we spent 3 hours last night in the ER while they looked me over. The final consensus was that they would give me pain killers and in the morning if I still felt this way that I needed to contact my oncologist to see if he had ideas. So 30 minutes ago I put in a call my my oncologist and popped a pain pill.

Prayer would be appreciated. Not sure what this is, hopefully they can figure it out as well.
