Hi everyone, I have just had my first appointment at Leeds General Infirmary. My symptoms are tight heavy chest and getting breathless very quickly.
So, today I have had a chest xray, blood tests, my oxygen levels measured, the lovely young lady doctor gave me a going over with her stethoscope and I had a ECG. Apparently the results of my spiromotry test, taken five months ago, that I thought were terrible, were actually OK. I passed everything with flying colours, and I will get a letter with another appointment date for November where more tests will be carried out. So I am no nearer to knowing what is causing these horrible, worrying symptoms. Whatever it is, it is becoming worse by the day, and really quite debilitating. Anyway, today I have started the diet to end all diets, we will continue going to the gym, where I fear I will spontaneously combust, go on more walks,do more gardening and just hope that I am able to control it. And to cap it all, I had gone to the hospital in my lovely new turquoise strappy sandals, only to discover I cannot walk in them, that only resulted in my breathing et al becoming even worse as we walked up hill for five minutes to the car park! If I am going to be really ill, my God, I will do it with some sparkle and attitude!
Lots of love to all you gorgeous people out there, and I hope you are having a good day.
