Yesterday I walked five miles on the beach with Bradley, our dog. Last year I usually walked four or five miles a day on the beach and I'm hoping I can continue that pace this year. I've also been swimming in the ocean, although it's been a cool and rainy Spring with not much real beach weather.
As for symptoms, I continue to feel my heartbeats pulsing up into my throat. Five years ago I only felt this when I exercised. Now I can feel it when I'm resting. What is it? I think it is my enlarged aorta pressing against the esophagus or other throat structures that I'm feeling. When I have my next echo in six months I'll know if there has been any enlargement of the aneurysm.
