I had a lot of indigestion, nausea and vomiting recently. I kept telling my Drs it was my stomach and acid reflux. They made me go thru the stomach tests as well as see a cardiologist. Gastro Dr says aid reflux out of control and put me on protonix, esophagus not working taking reglan before eating for that. My stomach is much improved.
Stress test was good , but echo shows enlarged left ventricle with aortic and mitral valve leakage. The cardiologist says this is nothing to worry about unless I have shortness of breath, and I am good there. They said the enlargemnt of left ventricle is usually do to high blood pressure which I don't have. He said some people are just born that way. I mentioned this to my Rheumy and she wants the records.
I haven;t slept in weeks over 2--4 hrs a night. Finally got in to see Sleep Dr. Old one has left (thank you Lord) and I saw new one. Found out I actually have a bad case of apnea and the old Dr never told me. So glad I have stuck with my CPAP. i am on a adjusting maching for a month and then I go back. I have actuALLY slept all night 3 nights this week. For those of you who sleep.........this is a wonderful thing. I now know when I have these problems its time to call the sleep Dr.
Hopr everyone has a wonderful week.
