All the advice about cardiac care is good, and should be followed.

But if work stresses you that much, reappraise your career. Unless you are a surgeon or somesuch, your job is unlikely to be a matter of life or death.

I've worked under some stupid high pressure deadlines, and honestly, if you don't thrive on that sort of thing, let it go.

If you are feeling that still, go call 911 and go to a hospital.

If not, go to a doctor.

I had the same sensation a few months ago and hemmed and hawed and finally went to the hospital. They ran a battery of test and in short, I am fine.

I was hesitating about taking time off work, the cost, etc. but then I realized that it would be far better to be a day behind at work and a little embarassed than it would be to be dead.

I don't regret my decision for a second. You won't either.

Get to a hospital or doctor.

Good luck.

I wonder what happened. He hasn't written in a few days on here. Anyone think he's stuck in a hospital after taking the advice given, or that he's still stuck behind a desk somewhere?

I've thought about that as well.

I hope he's ok.

I work on contract as network Administrator now. I setup user accounts on network, give permission to users on SAP database, lotusnotes and other IBM software.

I feel so stressed out by paperwork. I feel overloaded with work.

Glad to hear that it wasn't your ticker. Yet. But I can't help but think that as you get older that stress is going to do nothing but bad things to you. If I were you, I would consider a career change. Different people handle stress, no matter what the source might be, differently. Apparently this job is causing stress that you can't handle well. There are a lot of jobs available out there, but only one life. My wifes best friend, a law enforcement dispatcher for 20+ years, (a very high stress job,) started showing severe signs of stress a couple of years ago, yesterday it killed her. Look for a new job...

I like to troubleshoot problems in IT but this admin job is dam boring and causing great deal of confusion for me. My mind is in constant chaos. My mind blank out a few times while driving home on a local street. I will look for another job in May since I can't afford to quit now.
