My usual doctor was away on holidays, so I had to see another one. I told him about the recent episode 2 weeks ago, which lasted one hour and explained I had diarrhea along with palpitations this time which was new to me, I had done some research before going and asked him for a referral for a potassium test which he gave me. I also explained my past input in respect of my altered diet etc. The answer I got was that quote "there is no conclusive evidence to suggest that diet effects arrhythmia" Well I have conclusive evidence as my condition has improved over a 2 year period with doing this. The question I should have put to him after this remark could have been - "well the medication didn't exactly help the condition either" but I didn't go that far I just sat there and tried to defend my position but felt utterly despondent and later on got really angry about this (which isn't good for me either). So why did I bother doing all this research and trying to change the outcome when apparently no good can come from it, and what causes this condition in the first place. Sorry to be such a bore at the moment, but still smarting from the visit. What would you have done? thanks everyone
