Hi everyone ....went to see my rheumy yesterday and she doesnt think my ra and lung probs are linked. But explained all my bloods results in normal language ....my gp took a bnp test to see how my heart was working she told me it was higher than should be but didnt explain fully and i was in shock to be honest to ask ...she wont sign me off until we know what ive got. But nurse said my hands are swollen - holding water ....and heart is working extra hard due to infection or heart failure and need to see gp ...had ct scan and respirtory dr didnt use the bnp test but said my heart sounds fine ct scan will pick up and ill go for echo. Goodness no wonder im bamboozeld . Anyone else know about these bnp blood tests. ???? I am feeling better but still lot pain in chest and get out of breath easily . But im going to see my lovely horse tomorrow for bit cuddle therapy yeeeeey xxxxx judith
