Hey Ann, that's awesome news. I hope they can get it done soon, and get to the bottom of this. I think we all can relate to days of crying. I know I sure have my days.
gentle hugs
God Bless

I am so glad you will be seeing experts instead of idiots soon. I moved over 600 miles to be where I knew better doctors where and near my family. I was in an area where a woman I knew was having horrid chest pains, pain in her shoulder, nausea, and palpatations but the ER doc said she was having a panic attack without any tests or even listening to her heart and sent her home. Her husband drove over an hour to a better hospital and it saved her life because she was having a heart attack. They are the reason I got so bad in the first place. I had a gallbladder attack and they offered to arrange for me to be admited to a psychiatric hospital. I learned the hard way that if the doctors don't know or don't listen find somewhere where they do.

I hope that you go to London very soon and that they quickly find a way to help you.
