Maybe This Should've Gone On The Health And Safety Board ?

2 posts in this topic

Was just wondering if any of you ladies had, or had heard of someone else who had a punter take ill during an appointment ? What did you do or would you do if it happened to you ?

The reason I ask is I've been feeling quite dodgy for a while now, lethargic, palpitations, breathlessness, sometimes even chest pains. Its got so bad that I've even stopped punting recently because I'm scared of collapsing or taking ill during the excitement of it and how embarrassing it might be for me and the poor lady involved if I needed an ambulance calling.

I got down the doc's and was referred to a heart specialist and after loads of tests it turns out I do have a minor heart condition, which can happily be managed with medication. But I'm still scared about going back punting again and I'm not sure whether I will ever be able to again.

Hi BigM,

 

Presumably you didn't ask your doctor about this. Do you feel able to tell us the precise diagnosis for your 'minor heart condition' as it is a little difficult for people to comment without this information.
