I have my appointment with the cardiologist tommorow. I was refered by the rheumy on diagnosis of hughes. But since then I've been getting chest pain and left arm tightness. My blood pressure was measured last week at 170/110 and apoarently my cholesterol is 7 (thought to be due to genetics). There is a history of heart attack in my family when ppl get to their 40s. I'm 32. I'm nervous.
I also saw a neurologist this week. He said I have chronic migraine and an essential tremmor. I also have left sided weekness but he didn't think that was neurological. Hes ordered mri scans. He said he doesn't think the neurological symptoms are due to hughes.
I keep being told that my apl g and lc are only slightly raised so shouldn't cause these symptoms. My question then is what is causing them? It's scary. But I'm being refered to St thomas's soon so I hope they will have some answers.
Wish me luck for the cardiologist tommorow!
