Just thought I’d come out of the bushes and say hello. I’ve been ‘lurking’ for a while, reading all the posts with interest and almost feel I’ve got to know some of you already! Such a friendly helpful group. I feel a bit pathetic being so anxious about my own cardiac health as don’t really know if it’s a huge cause for concern or not. I’ve got a strong family history of early onset heart disease ( brother & Dad both had cardiac arrests in their 40’s). I have systolic high blood pressure (currently taking beta blockers) and anxiety. Recently been referred to cardiologist for sudden bouts of tachycardia. So far I’ve had an echo (normal) and MRI (calcified plaque in 2 arteries with score of 48). 5 day holster ( showed a few episodes of SVT) and am having stress echo next week. All of this terminology is new to me and as you can imagine I’m googling frequently ( not always a great idea). I just have a feeling I might be at the start of a ‘journey’ here. I am so full of admiration at what some of you bravely take in your stride whilst I am an anxious wreck. Sorry for such a long post, promise I won’t ramble on so much in future!
