Gail's Story

HAS A CHILD I HAD RHEUMATIC FEVER WAS IN THE HOSPITAL ALLOT. FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS I HAVE HAD SPELLS OF BEING DIZZY, PALPITATIONS AND FELLING FAINT FINALLY I FOUND A DOCTOR WHO FOUND MY PROBLEM AFTER A FEW TIMES GOING BY AMBULANCE TO THE HOSPITAL THEY PUT A PACEMAKER IN I HAVE HAD IT FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS. JUST LAST WEEK I WENT TO THE HEART DOCTOR FOR MY REGULAR CHECKUP AND AFTER MY ELECTRIC CARDIOGRAM I HAD TO GO IMMEDIATELY TO HE HOSPITAL. THEY PUT ME ON A NEW MEDICINE AND I HAD TO BE MONITORED IN THE HOSPITAL FOR  FOUR DAYS WHEN I STARTED THE NEW MEDICINE SO FAR I THINK I FEEL BETTER. I GO BACK TO THE DOCTOR’S IN TWO WEEKS. I HAVE A FAMILY HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE MY MOTHER DIED OF A STROKE SHE HAD 2 BYPASS OPERATIONS AND STENTS AND HER MOM  DIED FROM A STROKE AND HER DAD HAD A MASSIVE HEART ATTACK.
