Visit to DR

I visited my Dr yesterday and explained my worsening symptoms. I'm a little annoyed as the Dr I saw previous told him about my googling my symptoms. Surely she shouldn't have discussed that with him? Anyway I've been put on propanolol. Even though I'm still convinced there's something wrong with my heart. The sudden heart palpitations were the whole reason I googled my symptoms in the first place. I'd never had heart palpitations before I got this virus.

I’m the same I had a serious allergic reaction to some bug bites and got a rash and my face swelled up and then a month later I started having palpitations, got tested for lymes disease recently which can take up to six weeks. Even though I’ve been told it’s anxiety and had a few tests in the same I’m still convinced something is wrong with my heart. So when I get all clear from the cardiologist hopefully I think I will have to accept it’s anxiety and not let it ruin my life anymore as I can’t carry on like this with all these physical symptoms and overthinking as I’m only making myself worse. I got put on Bisoprolol which does help me with the racing heart but nothing else do keep getting the odd palpitations.

It's awful isn't it. When I googled my symptoms it told me it was myocarditis. After numerous tests the drs are convinced it isn't. I haven't seen a cardiologist like yourself though. I'm considering it. Anxiety really is a bitch

Yeah it’s awful, I think once I see a cardiologist and they do more tests and it comes clear then I have to accept anxiety. Google also makes me more anxious I have something I probably don’t and try and avoid it as I’ll just give myself more anxiety. I always worry about the Doctors missing something though.

Yeh it's not always the best idea googling but we won't be the first and we won't be the last.

Dr Google can be a friend and foe.
