hello , new to this group , last week i felt lightheaded , but i put it down to my raised blood pressure and the stresses of every day life, i went to see the doctor who found my pulse was 130 , so she sent me to have an ecg
i had this , along with blood, test and chest xray , all of which has come back clear. the doctor at the hospital said it could have possibly been an svt , but not recorded as such as my heart rate was back to normal.he the put the fear of god into me by saying i shouldnt drive ,i was given a letter ,with an appointment for a monitor 4 weeks from now. i was fine the next day and have been back at work 30 /40 hours a week no issues. my question is do i have to wait until after i have had the monitor for a week (5 weeks away ) before i can drive, do i need to inform the dvla ? i looked at the forms but i havent been diagnosed with a heart condition so i dont know what to do . i explained in the event of driving if i felt unwell i would be able to pull over safely , but he put on my letter advised not to drive
i was allowed to go home the same afternoon with no medication or anything, or any suggested ideas as to what the cause was , and told i probably wont happen again. any thoughts would be most welcome,thanks
