I haven't been feeling well for about 6 weeks now. I have gone to the Emergency Room -- they found nothing and sent me home. I have gone to my family doctor and he took blood tests, but hasn't gotten back to me on the results. Today I went to my cardiologist. He listened to me and is concerned enough with what is happening to give me three tests.
Right now I am wearing a 24-hour heart monitor. What a pain! Try going to the bathroom when you have a monitor with wires attached to you that you have to hold with one hand so it doesn't fall. At least it's only 24 hours. 12:30 p.m. tomorrow I can take it off. Then I am taking an early dinner and running it back to the doctor's office. As usual I forgot to get a note for work, so I will get that while I am there also. I'm always in such a hurry to get out of that office.
I am also going to have a stress test and an echocardiogram. I am determined to find out why I am having heart palpitations and feel like I'm going to pass out.
It's been a week since I had my blood tests, so I am going to call the office tomorrow and see if the results have come in.
I am hoping that whatever it is it's something simple that a change in dosage of medication (or a new medicine) will be able to fix. I am so tired of feeling tired and sick all the time.
