Am having quite a few very serious symptoms that are related to chronic stress, but evidently, after so many years of this, it is at a critical stage, and is indicating internal damage, especially to my heart.
Just need to know, if I take a stress exercise test, and it indicated a high pulse rate would this be sufficient to convince doctors that something drastic, internally, is going wrong, and needs treatment? What would happen next? More tests? I have had an echocardiogram test which came back negative, which seems unrealistic given the fact my body is in constant pain, evidently indicating internal damage.
Have had fallouts with my gp surgery on a regular basis as they haven't been taking my symptoms seriously. Am aware that at 57, and in poor health, I am not a priority for the NHS, especially being seen as a 'difficult patient'. Am also aware that NHS doctors can quietly dismiss you from treatment if they choose, which I believe is happening. Evidently, I need an operation, a pacemaker, but it seems they are going to refuse this. Doubting this, but is there any way around this, can someone advise...?
