  • Go straight to A&E. Explain your symptoms. On the Web go find PMI instruments based in Bracknell. Buy the ecg monitor for £90. It works with your phone. It is nhs approved. You can then monitor your heart and show the ecg to your doctor

  • Hi, what has your cardio said? it is a strange time just after you realise things are not quite right with your heart and all sorts of things flash around the old (or young) grey matter.

    There is always two ways of looking at these things (which is what the one fly said to the other while walking up a mirror) If I take a negative swipe at myself then with what lve got and having had two heart attacks 20% of people die within 5 years, BUT! 80% survive the first 5 year - l concentrate on the 80%.

    There are many reasons why you may get a strange beat but in all cases fretting makes thing worse, l know it is dificult but try and go with the flow and follow what your cardio says.

  • Just go to A&E bypass the GP

  • i've bin a&e that's wear i got a ecg blood test and chest x-ray and they said it's nothing
