Hi - still feel like I'm invisible, so following advice from you kind people I rang and made an appt - which turned out to be a telephone one ... this was fine! My 'new' Dr called - (shuffling of papers in the background) & the first thing he said was "You suffer from Anxiety" & I replied "Do I". He then asked "why have you called then?", to which I replied I didn't you called me instead of a face to face & it's about my echo & ECG results - to which he asked "What results?" & there was more shuffling and he asked if I had the results. I said I had a copy of the Echo and patient summary etc & gave him the dates but that I'd not received a copy of the ECG. He then said "Id better read your notes and call you later" Which he did - (This was Monday) ...He said that he was chasing up the ECG & would call me Friday a.m. - On Friday he said that apparently my Consultant was on holiday so he's asked for someone else to read them & he'd ring me next week (this week just gone). The echo & ECG were done nearly 6 weeks ago. The consultants report said reduced left ventricular systolic function but due to constant Bigeminies couplets & triplets it was difficult to read etc & that he'd send ecg results on when read ( this dated 03.10.14). Perhaps things do take this long ? & Im being unreasonable - pls tell me if I am. I did enquire about meds when I talked to my 'new' gp but he said not until he knows what he's dealing with. In the meantime I feel like I'm going to faint on a regular basis - suffer nausea - and chest discomfort of different kinds. I can't say I feel anxious/depressed etc ...just 'forgotten'. Also more or less bedridden as I feel so exhausted and in pain (flu like symptoms from my FM ). Sorry this is yet another diatribe ....but if you'd read my other posts you'd understand why I feel like I'm going it alone. Just wish I could self refer but know I'd need a Dr to help me do this. I just feel so very tired. Ann
