Had ablation for flutter back in April brilliant no flutters since!! No signs of my AF at the time so EP holding off ablation for that till it appears again!! On holidays in cornwall 3 weeks ago I fainted in the middle of the lost gardens of Heligan. Mmmm not good I sat for a while gulped water raised legs etc did all the right things. Felt yuk rest of time but muddled through. Took a week and a half to get in to see my named GP which I did last Wednesday I told him he did my BP which was 102/54 which is low I’m now monitoring 2 x daily with a monitor. Yesterday had a day of AF (Kardia mobile detected) although I felt it hence I took reading HR was 89bpm during that episode. Upon waking yesterday my HR was 132bpm and I think I was in and out of AF all day. I’ve not felt like that in about 5 months! I feel sooo tired I felt like ide ran several marathons without moving an inch!! I have a pacemaker which is supposed to adjust to what my heart is doing I had it fitted because HR & BP were too low that was 13 years ago. Now my BP been ‘normal’ for sometime and suddenly has dropped again really really low this morning it reads 75/40 pulse 60 the highest reading I’ve had since last Wednesday is 97/50 on an evening reading. So don’t know what’s going on I’m hoping my pacemaker has recorded the AF episode yesterday looking at the ecg recorded I wouldn’t have a clue what I’m looking at it’s just a load of wriggly lines to me that go up and down I really must learn how to read an ecg!! I don’t see EP till 7th sept and that’s my post operative appointment from ablation back in April!! Which I think is a long time to be seen. Not got appt for pacemaker check not cardiologist which I normally do have so feeling neglected at the moment and struggling to know what to do or how to cope!!
Sorry it’s long post but too much going on and feel really yuk! In need of some TLC
Thanks everyone for taking time to read hope it all makes sense
