  • Thanks for the responses to my heart beating fast episodes

    Hello everyone Thanks so much for the responses to my topic. You guys are really good people and really gave me some things to contemplate seriously. Some days I feel like everything is turning like a rolling coaster and sometimes I feel like that picture screaming. That day on tuesday and all this week I have felt weak and the day in the break room I almost broke down into tears. It seems like all of us with Hcm can be a counsel to each other. So once again God bless you all.
    Brigham and women's hospital has been an immense help and I do have great doctors there so I will continue going there. But I also in addition to them I agree it would be a great help if I could go to THe Necm if it's as great as you guys are making it sound and If I could get into To see a hcm specialist doctor any thing you guys can suggest would be great. Thanks again for everything.

    My goodness Kimberly,
    Talk to Lisa – she can help a lot. She should be in on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Her number is at the bottom of the page. Make up a list of your questions and concerns so you don’t miss anything. Don’t forget to ask about the NEMC.

      This board is simply amazing - -the support - - the caring and the friendship is really something special!

      There are some very good docs at the center you are at - you do have a wonderful option for a 2nd opinion close to home at NEMC - you may wish to use that.
      If you need any help, let me know.

      Knowledge is power ... Stay informed!
      YOU can make a difference - all you have to do is try!
