The holter monitor testing showed that yes, that 'extra beat' I've been feeling in my heart really is there. I think they call it ventricular ectopic beats. Also, my heart was going into SVT at times during the monitoring (top measurement was 166 beats a minute, so not severe but still rapid). The Echo Test will show us if there is a physiological reason why my heart is doing this.
For now, I need to make lifestyle adjustments. I need to eliminate all caffeine and alcohol from my diet.
No tea. No coffee. No chocolate. No wine.
Yep, it's a bit hard to swallow.
Also (and this is the bit that is really worrying me, to be honest), the lump I felt in my breast really is there and I am going for a breast ultrasound tomorrow. This will show if the hardening is simply fibrocystic (and benign) - or you know what. I don't even want to say it.
So that's where I am tonight. I'm going to bed to prevent myself thinking any more about all this. Just wanted to share. Please keep praying, I so appreciate it.
