    having episodes of chest pain, irregular heartbeat and breathlessness. Doctor advises to go to A&E when it happens but they just test for heart attack and send me home. I'm fed up of traipsing to hospital and finding it more and more exhausting. GP advises that I have ectopic beats and not to worry about it - difficult when in pain and intolerant to meds. Anyone got any suggestions ??

    I had an ablation in 2012 after finally catching an episode on an ECG and being intolerant to meds.
    What's POTS?

    @Alexi Has your GP not sent you to see a Cardiologist at any point?

    Yes. Just. I insisted my GP refer me back to the cardiologist who did the ablation. I feel as if I have to fight for every health issue as it gets tarred with the same MR/CFS brush
