Have you seen a doctor, do you know if you have any conditions with your heart? Is your pulse high/low? What kind of symptoms do you have and how consistent are they?
I was very fit and active before my wave of medical problems crashed into me...I'm still swirling there somewhere. Going to do something as simple as take a shower, walk to the kitchen, or take out the trash=these are all huge obstacles for me.. I get very dizzy, my chest is constantly sore and heavy, I have confusion-it's very hard to focus and speak articulately.. I began fainting in the shower, so now I have to sit down to wash. Any normal small task sets it off.. I thought this would be a we'll see how ya, monitor a while.. I also have fibromyalgia and arthritis and that combined with a heart problem.. uhg!
I get foggy and confused sometimes, the intelligent self is hidden under several layers of medical bills. Sorry if my posts don't make as much sense as they were intended to.
Near-fainting or fainting (syncope)
Shortness of breath
Confusion or memory impairment
Easily tiring during physical activity
*..I have every single one =/
I have bradycardia and it's knocked me into bedrest for two weeks. I was in the ER Friday & my heart rate dropped into the lower 40s..I was placed on a monitor and it stayed at 43 and above..they wanted to keep me longer and do another iv to raise my blood pressure and see if the heart rate would go up, but I was far too exhausted. I promised to follow up with my physician and cardiologist to do further testing.. My other medical problems make life difficult, but this one has just knocked me flat on my face. I feel so depleted and my mobility is very poor, I can't drive, & I can't take my daughter outside=I'd never catch her. =(
Fibromyalgia. Bradycardia. Arthritis. IBS. Reynauds. & sadly, Sarcasm-it's a terrible condition. =P
