Hi I just wanted to ask some advice. I have Fibro, PBC, Raynauds and a few other ailments that affect my knees, hips and feet. I do still manage to work full time, despite feeling exhausted, and in some form of pain too, most of the time ( I really love my job).
Recently a new development is shortness of breath, intermittent back/chest pain and dizzy/lightheadedness, I have had ECG and 24 hr heart monitor, it appears that heart is ok just beating a little slower than normal, but GP wants to rule out underlying heart condition as there is a slight history of heart problem in the family. She wants me to undertake a rigorous treadmill examination: this is where I need advice. I am worried that due to the fibro and other conditions affecting my muscles and joints (particularly from hips down) this will have a very detrimental effect on me, although it would put everyone mind at rest re my heart. I just wondered if anyone else has come up against this issue and whether it helped or not. My grown up kids laughed when I first told them and then expressed their concerns. My GP has left it up to me to decide if I should do it. HELP !!!
