I'm in need of a chat as there is no-one at home to talk to without upsetting them and there may be no need to worry!
I went into hospital because of GP concerns with my last ECG but nothing was decided apart from one doctor (to another) discussing possible heart failure. I came home no wiser but thankful that all seemed ok apart from them saying they would like further tests done - CT scan, lung function etc.
Had lung function done which shows a reduction in transfer of oxygen from lungs to bloodstream since last time.
I have become increasingly tired and breathless with an ache/ pain in left shoulder and down left side of chest. Ankles and legs are starting to swell more noticeably too.
Had pneumonia and flu vaccinations last Wednesday.
Went to rheumy appointment on Thursday and had a really good check up resulting in being told that the CT scan would be asked for ASAP. I received a letter on Saturday saying scan is next Friday. Quick?
Echocardiogram is the week after.
This morning I have felt quite dizzy and feel a bit sick with a grumbly tummy.
I have now made the ultimate mistake. Yes - GOOGLE! Why, oh why do we do it?
The possibilities are scary aren't they?
I retired in July with endless plans but have felt poorly ever since - grrrrrrrr!!
Who has had similar happenings?
What might be the results?
Thanks for listening
