I seem to be having a run of health issues lately. I've just had suspected chicken pox and been feeling generally unwell for several days with symptoms including burning, stinging and tingling skin and feeling very cold with the inability to get warm. I am never cold! I also have no physical cold or cough, sore throat etc. I had a Drs appointment today which wasn't with my registered Dr who I have to say is very good. Thankfully the female Dr I saw was very thorough. Blood pressure was still high so BP meds have been doubled although when I got the prescription to the pharmacy I realised she'd not changed it from my original dose so will need to phone the surgery in the morning. My temperature was a bit above normal and she said I had a bit of a fever which I guess accounts for me feeling cold. However, the bit that has me really scared is that she detected and told me I have a heart murmur and she's referring me for a heart scan at one of our local hospitals asap. I'm totally in shock as I wasn't expecting this! I admitted I'd been bad with my diet for a while as my husband and I have had a few very stressful months resulting in the death of my mother in law in December and her funeral just before Xmas. I was told I needed to remedy my diet which I fully acknowledge. I also need to lose weight but I hadn't actually put any on since I was last weighed in October so I guess that's one good thing! I'm so scared though about the heart murmur and have no idea what a heart scan involves. I'm scared of what it might find. I'm hoping someone will reply that has had experience of this. I don't know where to find answers. I did try googling but this had made me even more stressed and confused. Sorry for rambling on, I just need to talk and my husband works shifts so is off to work soon and we haven't had an opportunity to talk about it.
