I'm new on here. My 20 year old daughter was fitted with a 24 hour ECG 2 days ago having been struggling for a while with palpitations, the shakes, dizziness and just generally feeling unwell. The results came back today, which was very quick considering we had been told two weeks.
The GP seemed to struggle with interpreting the information but stated that during the night her heart rate was dropping abnormally low and during the day, at times when she had logged symptoms on the diary they gave her, she was showing tachycardia.
The GP has made an urgent referral to a cardiologist and has advised no alcohol, exercise or caffeine and to go straight to the hospital if she has strong palpitations.
Obviously I am incredibly worried and was wondering if anyone else had experience of this type of thing or any advice as to what other steps I can take to keep her safe while we wait for an appointment, again been told up to two weeks.
