What a past few weeks!
Back again with some news. Boy these past few weeks have been rough. I've been to the ER 4 times in the past 3 weeks. Twice in the past 24 hours. I can't shake this dizziness, the lightheaded feeling, chest tightness, arms burning, weak, sweaty, rush feeling. It's driving me nuts! I took my BP last night and for the first time ever it said Irregular Heart Beat. It's NEVER done that before. It showed 158/73 and HR of 73BPM. That made me go back to the ER at midnight. I left earlier around 5:30pm. Ugh! The first time around it was for the same episode, just not as bad. The first time the tech did some adjustments and nothing showed on the monitor. OF COURSE! She did say my PM reported two 6 second Atrial Tachy episodes but that was it.
Last night it was the SAME THING but they kept me overnight. But this time they put a live event monitor (Zio Patch AT) on me for the next two weeks. Let's see what this brings. They cancelled my Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test on the 13th because of COVID but I still have my Tilt Table Test on the 27th. My 2nd opinion Cardiologist ordered a Tilt Table Test so it will be nice to have two results to look at. This has been a nightmare and doctors are stumped. Out of nowhere I can feel faint, weak, dizzy, chest pain, etc. It normally only lasts about 1-2 minutes but last night it continued for about 10 mins straight. I had just taken a cool shower. I wasn't worked up at all then BANG out of nowhere I started to sweat profusely, body tingling, arms and chest burning, palpitations and extreme sense of weakness. By the time I got to the ER it subsided and it hasn't happened since. This is NUTS! Anyhow that's my rant for the day. Oh and I tested negative for COVID. She said t the test would tickle my brain... UM IT HURT SO BAD! I thought she would poke out my eye balls!! Lol!! Take care everyone! Hope you're well!! God bless!
