how do you manage frequent visits to A and E without the staff looking skyward when you appear. Then making stuff up to get you out of the door as fast as possible? I have brittle asthma and try very hard not to go to A and E but atm I am there about once a month /fortnight when 3 nebs don't do the trick. Yesterday I had a different problem palpitations and tachycardia 140, woozy and not with it, I sat down and started an asthma attack on top. my son called 999 but we had the asthma almost nailed but the heart thing wasn't. On admission the A and E staff were only interested in the asthma which was sorted by then......4 hours later my heart rate was still 112, my son can read ECG and he said it wasn't right, the charge nurse came and said I could go, my pf was fine and bloods fine. I said my heart was still racing. He said 'arnt you happy to go, do you want to stay.' I aid im not happy to go with my heart racing, my asthma s fine, he sighed and set up another ecg and revisited my bloods results. My BM was 15- i'm not diabetic-normal is about 8, and my heart rate was still 112 with a trace showing atrial fibrillation. what do I do next time I take poorly?????????
