So after my good appointment with Dr Ernst last week I received a phonecall today from the brompton about my Holter Monitor results, the conversation was very brief and left me feeling very worried
Basically they’d noticed a run of fast heart rate on the holter and asked if I’d noticed anything while wearing it.... I hadn’t other than the usual missed beats I’d been having, he then said I’m going to need to get this over to Dr Ernst team to look at.
Panicking I rung Dr Ernst secretary only to be told she’s unavailable until 29th but they would get a member of her team to ring me back
I’ve just got off the phone to one of her registrars who said that they’d noticed a short run of fast heart rate, however it wasn’t from the atria so was nothing to do with the ablation or af... this had come from the ventricles, and was far far more dangerous than atria tachycardia, he asked me some worrying questions like have I had any family members who have died suddenly and few other questions I don’t remember as I froze and went into a cold sweat and panic...
The outcome is I have to go in for a mri of my heart to see how my muscle is working and what’s causing this fast heart rate..... google isn’t painting a very good picture, I’m left now just waiting for my appointment and worrying myself sick... not the outcome or news I wanted
I hoped the battery of tests I’ve had up until now would’ve picked up if there was a problem
