Had a couple of 'events' at work on the buildings and mentioned them to the Council Health Nurse three weeks ago. She picked up my dodgy heart beat and launched me off to the Practice Doctor. She sent to the hospital and I am now on Bisoprolol and an anti coagulant.
All this a week before I retired at 59. My heart seems to have an ongoing erratic beat. Pulse is now around 90-100 and bp is 112/83.
I read the forums and bought some potassium supplements and magnesium as this seemed to be deficient from my normal diet.
Still waiting on the investigation to get to a cardiologist and then discuss further treatments.
Ive dropped a stone in weight in the past three weeks and have another two to dump. I have gone from drinking about 15 pints a week to maybe 4. Just hope I live long enough to spend all this money I am saving from beet and bad food.
Just want to say thank you to all of you who have shared your stories and lessened some of the terror that my wife and I are feeling as we take our first steps into this nightmare.
