As some of you were interested in my heart problem I thought I'd give you an update, I went for my stress test yesterday, [ cancellation ] so that was good. I was wired up and ready for take off but my blood pressure was high, they let me rest on the couch for a while and then proceeded to get me on the treadmill, we waited a while but my blood pressure was 198/80 their cut off is 180 so they wouldn't do it and it was abandoned. They could see I was concerned and said, not to worry as the echo test I had last week gave them all I needed to know anyway, and unofficially I was told I had a leaky mitral heart valve , so not the angina the Cardio though I had in the first instance. No wonder my chest feels like I have a box of frogs in it. I now await an appointment to go back and see the Cardi.
I'm not sure why my B/P was so high, it was OK when I took it at home, I do get the white coat syndrome but not to that excess, either that or my B/P monitor is playing up, I will have to get it tested, or buy a new one
I know this isn't the right site to talk about B/P heart, but I thought I'd let you know.
