I attended A and E today after a lengthy period of feeling about to pass out and having central chest pain. The ECG showed prolonged QT again. The first time it was evident, it was presumed by doctors that it was due to disopyramide and it was stopped. I haven't been on ant arryhtmics for 3 months now though so am confused why this is happening intermittently. And scared as hell. The doctor said prolonged QT carries a risk of cardiac arrest. I feel at my wits end. Am hoping the ECG might be wrong. Any pearls of wisdom of funny anecdotes greatly appreciated. I can't settle, monitors going off, miss my husband and my own bed. And most of all, I want to be at home with my children in my arms.
