i cant believe how much nervy-ness i put up with pre-diagnoses. seriously.
we left plenty of time to do the 13 mile trip to kings yesterday. when i mean plenty i mean 1hr 15mins. i know crazy, with traffic, parking etc the time is needed. no parking spaces were available so mum swiftly pulled into the drop off point and wheeled me up to the cardiac unit. then mum raced back down to the car so as not to get a ticket, those parking wardens in lambeth seem to hide then pounce at any opportunity.
there was me without beta blockers since tuesday evening, nervy on edge, simply because i was sitting upright. i checked in, and waited. theres normally always a wait at the cardiac department, once i waited three hours before an appointment. however this time i just wanted to get out of there. i then began to think over my past. this is exactly how i felt pre-diagnoses. now i knew what the problem was, my tablets, fast heart rate, sitting up, legs down not raised.
i cant believe i suffered all those years. when a simple dose of a heart-slowing-down-pill would of helped.
anyway only a 15 minute wait. i was taken into a room, luckily i was able to lay down, feet up. the nurse tried to put a needle into my vain to put some liquid in (cant remember the name, there is a name for this). i have small viens, took a while of prodding about before one was found. was a bit apprehensive. the doctor told me what was going to happen. within ten minutes my heart was BEATING FAST. quite a sensation when your laying down. my face began to get hot, thump,thump,thump, my neck was pulsating. i had a slight shake all over. chest pain. i told the nurse this. the test was nearing the end. i think iodine was injected into me, i wasnt really with it by then.
test was over, heart-rate eased off slowly. the doctor will go over the results then send them to the dr that i see.
argh, not the worse test i have had. just not pleasant. i had to stay in the hosptial another half an hour incase anything happened. we made our way to costa coffee, sat in a cosy little corner. listening to a bunch of five drs talking about, wait for it.............. the change in jodie marsh, yes you hear me right. they debated that she was a pretty thing, before she became a glamour model, now she has become a body builder, well............... made me laugh anyway as they trawled through picture of her on one of their laptops.
very tired now, but fine ok. need rest. thanks for the well wishes. take care all.
