    NHS hotel.

    I'm in the local NHS hotel again.

    Feeling pretty iffy earlier today so gave it 3 nines.
    Irregular heartbeat, numbish arm, nausea, etc.

    ECG confirmed weird heartbeat but showed no other signs of MI.

    Paramedic said they probably wouldn't have brought me except for my previous history.

    No big problem just an overnight for blood tests.

    At least they now have free wifi at this one, but normal phone signals are still blocked for some reason.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Oh dear Nukecad, get well soon and hope you escape at the earliest opportunity.
    At least you are in the right place under the circumstances, you can't be too careful.

    No great problem, all calmed down.

    Awaiting discharge.

    Confirmed not a heart attack but definitely a bradycardia.
    I was down to 40 bpm at times, as well as an irregular beat.

    Halving the dose of one of my meds should prevent it happening again

    That is good news, hope the medication alteration works.
    Must have been quite frightening for you at the time.

    Found the reason why phones are blocked at that hospital.

    Its the newly built part and tge specification called for x-ray shielding in the walls as a Health and Safety at Work measure.

    The doctors and nurses complain about it more than the patients.
    Especially the doctors because no one can 'page' them and they're back to using wired phones.
