I posted yesterday about my HR being changed on my 90 day review from 60 to 70. I had already been having what I thought was the most common form of syncope, though I hadn’t yet fainted I feel like I’m going too when I get up from my recliner just about every time and it seemed more prevelent after the change in HR. Everything else has seemed to be better with the change to 70....I’’ve had more energy and my legs felt less fatigued.
I had a good afternoon, even played 5 holes of golf. Came home and legs felt good. Starting watching tv sitting in recliner, got up a couple times and felt like I was going to faint. Had a warm rush to my head and pounding heart. I had taken my BP at 8 and it was 133 over 78 with hr of 79. After having the episodes upon standing I decided to take my BP standing...when I stood I immediately felt faint..I didn’t get the BP cup tight enough so had to retighten it on my arm...that took a 15 or 20 seconds allowing me to calm a little bit. Even with that my reading was 128 over 88 with a HR of 125. It might have been 150 if I had not fumbled with the cuff. I read that all the symptoms I had was from the BP plummeting instead of spiking. Then again I guess it did have to plummet to get back to a normal range. I really don’t know what all that means but it will be Monday Morning before I can relay that to my Cardiologist.
