Unscheduled hospital visits…

… yeah, so I had some really bad heart palpitations 2 nights ago and ended up calling an ambulance at 1am.  This has been happening quite a lot in the evenings lately, but this time it was unbearably painful.

Long story short, seems like the bartonella is causing huge ectopic beats as it interferes with electrical impulses in the body.  I’ll be seeing a specialist next week to see if I can find a way of minimising problems before starting rifampicin.

It sounds like you have a good LLMD if he’s treating you for co-infections. It’s very hard sometimes to be patient through treatment. Hang in there!!!!!
