The fatigue levels have increased. I'm sleeping my life away. I'm constantly advised to diet and exercise, but this increases the fatigue and feelings of weakness. Recently, I've been getting certain symptoms which could be possible early indications of heart problems. But i'm terrified of doctors, more specifically needles. I ran out of the last blood test I was supposed to have and despite the terrible way I'm feeling at the moment, I'm too scared to go see my GP. I stopped taking blood pressure meds because of the side effects and suspect the way I'm feeling is to do with HBP. There have been times recently when I was convinced that my heart was beating so fast it would just stop. But the fear of doctors and needles is enough to make me prefer to face death. I don't know what to do and I don't feel like I can cope anymore.
