I was rushed into hospital after my heart slowed down due to extreme pain. Anyone else had this?

    I’m okay now but really worried the pain and bradycardia will happen again!  Can’t seem to get it out of my head!?

    Hi @Iamclarissa that must of been frightening for you, I've not heard of it before. It might be worth speaking to gp about pain management and about your fears.

    Hi @Iamclarissa :) I'm also really sorry to hear that you had that experience, as I can imagine it was quite scary and would weigh on your mind.

    Did the medical professionals involved in your care tell you how you could prevent this from happening again? Are you receiving ongoing care?

    Yes I have been given pain killers and a nerve conduction test!  Then the spinal specialist will sort out a pain management programme for me!  I just want to know why it happened? Thanks
