I called 911 the night of my 48th birthday with severe pain, which turned 
out to be a gall bladder attack (discovered *after* they'd run me through 
the wringer thinking it was a heart attack).  I feel your embarrassment <g>. 
I got told exactly the same thing you did, both by the nurse on the phone 
line at my HMO, who had to talk me into calling 911, and by everyone I came 
into contact with that night.

Somehow it didn't lessen my embarrassment, though.  But at least 
embarrassment won't possibly kill me.
