I have my first appointment with my Cardiologist on 30th Apil after my LVD/HF diagnosis from Echo on 28th February and am still wondering what I need to know...
Any suggestions on what I need to ask as a priority?
I am completely on my own as my 80yr old mum is in a care home unconcerned about me. Everyone here seems to have a loved one/someone to support them. I worry if I get really ill I'll have no one.
Current situation is un-medicated due to the side effects of Ramipril. I never felt unwell before diagnosis/medication and couldn't cope with feeling so bad on it. I was dizzy, light headed, off balance and heart pounded in my ears, it was like living in a constant fog.
5 days off and I feel absolutely fine apart from the stress/anxiety I already had. This masked my heart problem in first place but I can cope with the symptoms of that, been doing it for decades.
I am trying to look forward positively but to be honest current stress/anxiety issues mean I don't care as much as I should about my heart's future.
Take care everyone.
