It’s been since August I’m fighting to get some help to see a Cardiologist.
In August after few days I had my first dose I was checking my email and suddenly I felt strange and my head start to spin.
My blood pressure was
110 Pulse at rest
NOTE: I don’t use drugs and occasionally not always 1 beer a week! Now nothing due to medications Arvostatin and Propronol.
I was fit and lifting weights at list 4 days a week and never ever had fatigue, blood pressure spikes or any other health issue.
So Ambulance crew came and they did an EGC and a line was abnormal but they said was ok. They stayed 40 minutes or so waiting for my blood pressure. I though was just an episode, even if strange cause never ever had such thing in my life ever. That night I started to have tremors when I was lying down, and couldn’t sleep much also due to the heart palpitations.Since then always headhaces and dizziness especially when I was waking up in the morning, feeling really down with no power at all not even to open a bottle of water to drink. My heart was beating very fast even after opening a kitchen cabinet, absolutely crazy to me. Never ever felt like this in my life !
I asked to see my Doctor and they checked my blood pressure and was fine.
After a week (15 August) same thing, blood pressure spiked, my nails were purple and my heart was beating very fast, I called health line and they told me to immediately go to Emergency Room or call an ambulance.
I went to the Botany Medical Centre Eastcare. They checked my pressure which was high done an ECG, again a line was abnormal but they said was in general ok.
Doctor asked me if any from my family suffered high blood pressure, and my Mum does actually. He said you probably need to start medication. I said ok. Anyway he said need to do the Troponin test full blood test too.
Values were ok strangely no high cholesterol.
I contacted my Doctor again and he prescribed me anti depressive pills which I refused to take, I was very scared while reading side effects. I explained I’m not anxious and not shaking at all during the day, I go to sleep and as soon as I lay down I have tremors and my heart start to beat fast. I begged my Doctor to see a Cardiologist cause something strange on my heart and I can feel the beating all the time, even in my head when I lay down on my bed.
So I carry on but I can’t sleep and cannot get better as days goes by. I see the Doctor again on the 1 of September and I asked him to please hear my Heart with the stethoscope. He heard something really strange, so I told him I know cause I can hear my heartbeat all the time which is not normal. So I asked him if I can have a MRI or CT on my heart. He prescribed me an Xray. I called Middlemore and they were fully booked and couldn’t see me until next week. So I went to a private lab in Botany and paid for it, I was feeling really fatigue and couldn’t even walk up 5 steps I have in front of my house. So I got image result after few hours and seem my heart was not big but looked normal.
So I said ok great, but still puzzled about my heart palpitations and my tremors when going to lay down and sleep.
I was anyway happy that day about the XRay results, watched a couple of movies and just relaxing and monitoring my blood pressure.
I go to bed, after not even a minute my heart start to beat fast. I didn’t care much and turn one side and trying to find a relaxed position and trying to sleep. After less than 10 minutes my tremors get worst, so much that I neeed to seat on the edge of my bed and trying to staying still. Never like this before. Getting worst and worst now I was shaking visibly and soo much I though I had an epilepsy attack, which I never had in my life and nobody from my family or back to 3 4 generations had this issue. My blood pressure was high and I can’t even stop my hands from shaking hard to even open the water bottle. I try to stay calm and waited 10 minutes…………………getting worst so I called the Ambulance.
After more than 1 hours an half they finally came, I explained to them all the history and I told them about Myocarditits/Pericarditis symptoms. They are of course on denial, however they assessed and asked me to go to the hospital cause they were worried anyway cause I was not getting better. Shaking at that time faded down thank god. Still shaking when I wake up every morning.
At the Hospital they did again troponin and full blood test and ECG. Doctor heard something strange on my heart and she tried to see my heart with the ultrasound, she however said she’s not an expert on that and couldn’t see any leaks of fluid apparently. I asked about the strange rumors from my heart, she said my GP need to follow up and asked for a Cardiologist specialist. She strongly recommend immediately to have a holter heart monitor for the next 48 hours. So I asked how do I get it, and she said your GP knows how to request it.
I begged the Emergency room Doctor if I can see a Cardiologist so they can hear my heart and understand what’s wrong, she stated not her job but my GP need to follow up. I went home and send an eamil to my Doctor to let him know what happened and to request urgently an Holter heart monitor. I tried to call him later on the day. He said due to Covid now the Cardiologist cannot see me and it’s not up to him unfortunately. He said the heart monitor is given by the cardiologist not him. So I said but I cannot see the cardiologist and the Emergency Doctor strongly recommend for me to have one now.
I talked about the symptoms again and that strangely I never had any issues in all my life and my symptoms match perfectly the side effects from the Pfizer vaccine. I also asked him if a normal ECG rule out the Pericarditis/Myocarditis, he said definitely not. So I asked him to have a proper test to rule out that ! Still no further exams as we speak.
Now my heart beat it’s ok thanks to the Propranolol and Arvostatin, which I reduced at just 1 third of pill each day and 2 Propranolol each day before bed. However often during the week at list 3 times a week I need to top up my Propranolol again with 2 more pills in the middle of the night cause palpitations start. Also my tremors didn’t go away and still when I lay down trying to sleep and when I awake in the morning.
Health Minister and Covid Team replied when I submitted adverse reaction to the Vaccine, I asked for exemption due to the adverse reaction to the vaccine and they replied about mask exemption ! Still txt me and email me every second day to ask me to get the second dose of Vaccine! I can’t risk my life, I trusted and believed in the vaccine. I also posted a Video right after I got the jab at the Vodafone Event Centre in Auckland. I was happy and cheerful ! I’m not a no-vax.
Now I can’t run or do any activities cause I feel very fatigue ! Last time I tried to run few meters I had my heart beat at 90 for more than 24 hours and continously ! This is not normal at all.
I did report it on Covid 19 website and also sending an email to the Covid 19 Vaccination Team, they disregard totally ignoring and asking me to go ASAP to get the second dose.
Waiting to see Cardiologist, according to a letter I received no later than middle of November !
I emailed my GP again asking for the exemption, first time was back in September. Ignoring me and instead I had a phone call from his medical centre, harassing me telling me over the phone I have to do the second dose. I explained my GP knows my health condition, they can talk to him. They insist !! Again saying I have to do the second dose, I remained calm and told them again to talk to my Doctor, they didn’t want to let me go keeping me on the phone with aggressive attitude and ignoring not listening just repeating:”You had to do the second dose, for which day would you like to book it”? Unbelievable. I’m lost and unsure I can trust my GP anymore, I understood also now GP are under pressure too. It seems to me they abbandon me and just waiting to something really bad happening to my heart, no other logical expalnations ! So they can carry on and not worry about me ! P.S. Nurses at the Hospital were kind, however the Emergency Department Doctor she said not her job to let me see a Cardiologist.
