"Heart palpitations"

I went earlier this year with a racing heart after the fourth day i was very worried, i actually called 111 & i think i misheard the nurse who took my call as i thought they said it was fine to go to Edenbridge, i was treated with respect, i did have a long wait but hey it's a hospital full of sick people who all think their case is more urgent than yours, so i wasn't bothered by the wait, I was seen by a lovely nurse who apologized for the wait & after i had explained what was wrong, they put me took my pulse & blood pressure, they told me it was normal, the nurse wasn't patronizing at all, they told me it had probably settled while i was waiting. I was very thankful not only for their patience but also as it turn out the wait! I will be going again if the need ever arises!
