    Yesterday we took the dog for a walk.
    Half way I didn’t feel well.
    I was shaking, wobbly, felt a bit unreal & worst of all my heart felt like it was making a bid for freedom.
    Back to the van for a cuppa.
    My body didn’t settle so we went to the ER room!
    Heart rate-220 bpm & erratic.
    BP very high.
    So after some horrible injections, think they may have been chemically interrupting heart beat to get it to stabilise & a drug thinning jab it eventually dropped.
    Took about 5 hours tho and is still very erratic!
    I spent the night in A&E covered in stickers & wires with machines buzzing & beeping all around me, no sleep tho!
    Can go home later today with loads of meds I expect!
    I feel fine now & ready to gooooooo!

    I am so sorry you are :sick::sick:

    Overnight with all the machines and beeps and squeaks = no rest. I hope they do follow through and find out what happened - but once they release you please take it easy for a day or two and get plenty of rest.

    Excellent you've had some symptom of a heart problem - many don't. You were very lucky.

    Sorry to hear about your problems but, at least, medics are alert to it now.

    Best wishes for a full recovery.
