I've been having trouble with headaches & dizziness. At my appointment at 'Medicine for the Elderly' at Rotherham General, the Dr said "we know it's not fits" which I knew anyway (I know what fits are). Then at the end of the appointment he said "we think your symptoms are due to low blood pressure" but I said that I've never had low blood pressure before, to which he replied "we think you have an irregular heart beat".
I'm fed up with being fobbed off because that's what it feels like. I had a nervous breakdown last year & I still get very stressed out (which I'm trying to overcome) as I still want to know what is causing my headaches & dizziness> If they would give me a brain scan, at least then it would definitely rule some things out.
