Went to the GP today. I have high blood pressure and am on medication. I have recently been having dizzy episodes on getting g up suddenly and on a couple of occasions nearly passed out. On home testing my BP was low, but now it is quite high. My GP listened and found a heart murmur and mentioned a leaky valve. I was shocked and was not expecting this.. I am being referred for a scan.I have been down this road with my son who had a valve replacement aged 18 and then another last year, so I am fairly well informed.
But I am scared; I feel that I am carrying a time bomb around with me. I went through hell worrying about my lovely son who is now on warfarin. Worried about what the future holds. I want to see my grandaughter grow up.I do everything I can to stay healthy, eat right, have cut right back on alcohol, though I recognise I need to exercise more. I have lost four stone in the past year.
Just needed to vent. I don’t expect anyone to have any answers. I just feel a bit alone. My two daughters, one of whom is completely estranged, do not care. My son does, but is busy, though I see him a lot. Sorry, I know other people have much worse problems!
