HELL ON EARTH

Wednesday 19th October

Felt well all day until 9pm. Then felt ill and uncomfortable with palpitations, racing heart rate. Went to hospital. My heart rate was 113 bpm at 10pm. I was told on admission that I might have suffered a heart attack, as protein was found in my blood after a blood test. However, I was told that the protein/troponin reading was 0.27, and if you have suffered a heart attack it is much higher. A decision was made to keep me in overnight. My blood pressure was 129/87 at 10pm.

My heart rate reading was 104bpm at 11pm.
