Following my previous posts I wonder if anyone can help me with this.
Over the last 3/4 weeks I've noticed a marked deterioration in my breathing. I had my TEE test on Monday and the consultant said I needed a Mitral Valve Repair as the prolapse had become severe.
This afternoon while out shopping I went and sat in the cafe as my breathing has been getting worse. When I went to find my wife I walked up and down the very large store a couple of times to find her and by the time I found her I'd started to feel dizzy and faint. I sat down and passed out. The first aider from the shop came immediately and as I was struggling for breath she rang 999. Paramedics came and by the time I was able to tell them about my MVP diagnosis they were thinking I'd had an heart attack. They were brilliant and spent about 40 minutes checking me out.
Does anyone have experience of a similar deterioration leading to dizziness and fainting.
Any help greatly appreciated.
