My heart took off racing earlier in the week and my GP called an ambulance and I was admitted to the cardiology ward of my local hospital. While in A&E I was given magnesium by drip and it didn't agree with me at all. I felt like a hot rushing through my veins and then started to very slowly pass out, fortunately the doctor speaking to me at the time realised what was happening and turned it off. Blood test results, received later, showed that I wasn't lacking in it anyway thank goodness.
In the ward the cardiologist dealing with me said that the beat my heart was doing was most unusual and that it was probably as a result of the extensive scarring in my heart, from my ablations, which had caused my heart to become 'stiff'. That's something I've never heard of before! I will now have to rely on Metoprolol as a pill in the pocket to calm my heart if I get another session like this one as there is not a lot else they can do procedure wise because of the scarring.
A few hours before leaving hospital I had a final ECG and the woman doing it said the machine output showed that my heart was in first degree heart block, but that she didn't agree with that. I know first degree is not the worst to have, but I didn't like hearing those words.
I came home yesterday tea time and am feeling really tired today.
