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.
