Why do Doctors do this

Got a text this morning from my Doc who I am seeing on Tuesday, telling me one of my test have come up border line and is arranging an ECG for me. Why do they do this, just leave you hanging and worrying , why couldn't she have just told me Tues. now I don't know what the Score is and what is wrong. Must admit I have been having some really bad Palpatations and dizziness oh well now the waiting game.

  • Hi

    I know it's easy to say, but try not to worry too much about your ECG. If your GP was seriously worried he/she would have had you in immediately for the ECG.

    You will get the result straight away, whilst you are there, so you won't have to wait around for results.

    Try your best to put it out of your mind until next week. At least you're having it done before Christmas so you will not have to wait around over the whole of the Christmas period.

    Good luck. I hope that your results come back clear.

    All the very best. Lu xx

  • Thanks Lu, don't normally bother me, but just thought it could have waited.xx

  • Some Dr's think they are keeping you informed and that's all it is. Try not to worry as Painfulpixie says had it been serious they would have brought you in straight away or sent you to the A&E :)

    Good luck with your appointment on Tuesday :)

  • I know , just think it could wait. I'm in one of those moods today when everything is annoying me. Lol

  • Everyone gets days like that, getting offloaded usually helps :)

  • I agree all it does is cause more stress!!!!

  • I know they just leave you hanging and thinking. Does my head in.

  • Yep it's like they think we'll I informed you. Duh it's the whole well you could have given me a little more information you know! If you say anything it's like. Well it wasn't anything big and I didn't want to worry you😳😳😳😳

  • Ha ha love the last bit don't want to worry you.😖😤, huh no Doc it's just my heart

  • I am so genuinely sorry to read this and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck for Tuesday. I agree totally with the others as please try not to worry too much but I know it is easier said than done. Please take care of yourself and let us know what happens?
