I’ve had my Holter monitor rigged up. I have to wear it for 4 days, see what’s going on with the little ticker.
Recap - since becoming sick 4 months ago I’ve had lots of palpitations, blood splinters, dizziness, chest pressure, shortnesss of breath etc etc. And an echocardiogram that showed fluid around my right ventricle. Now to wear this to see exactly what is going on , the technician who fitted it saw an abnormality in my heart rhythm straight away!
I’m waiting to see Dr John Pauling who is a systemic sclerosis specialist based in Bath! My rheumatologist and Dr John Pauling have arranged a few things (one being Holter Monitoring) before my visit with him! Slight delay in my appointment because I am Welsh !! The welsh assembly refused to fund my treatment and appointments because Mr Pauling is in Bath. I’m lucky though as my GP and rheumatologist have both written amazing letters to the welsh assembly explaining how essential it is that I get the funding !!
It’s nice to finally be having all the relevant tests! Hope your all okay!
