I pray that you all are safe and well. As for me things could be better. Recently I've been having more episodes of presyncope. The lights haven't went out yet but boy has it been close. It's been happening at such random moments that it sounds odd even explaining them. I lay down at night on my left or right side and I immediately feel this rush in my chest, this tingling in my neck and head and I have to sit up or else I'll pass out. I bend down to wipe my dogs paws and I get that lightheaded feeling. I took him for a walk, got to the corner and almost passed out. It seems to happen with little exertion and at random times. I helped hang a mirror on the wall. I pressed it to make sure it would stick, turned back around and almost passed out. I took a shower this morning, bent down to wash my feet and almost passed out. It's driving me INSANE!!
I've been to the ER twice in 9 days. Both times for the same things. SOB, dizziness and presyncope. Both times everything checks out fine but today the ER doc brought something to my attention. I've read about it but none of my other docs have mentioned it. Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). He asked if I ever had a Tilt Table test and I told him no. So I emailed my EP & Cardiologist for an appointment ASAP! The other two items on my EKG today which were new as well was an abnormal R-Wave progression, early transition AND left ventricular hypertrophy. I've never seen either of these but the doc didn't think much of them. He said they weren't anything to fret about. Has anyone heard of either or know anything about it? I'm still struggling over here and just want things to get somewhat better for me. It doesn't even have to get back to normal, just better! Anyways thanks for listening as always and I appreciate any feedback.
