Well, just got back from PCP. He listened for three solid minutes to my heart, the pulse in my neck, and arms. Nothing. Said I'm right on target. He just rolled his eyes when I first said that the rheumy told me this. My heart rate was 80, b/p was 106/59. So everything is excellent. He said next time, go straight to ER, just to try and catch it and get it documented. But since I didn't "feel" anything, I didn't know I was even having any..lol. He blamed it on the caffiene I had drank, and said I could go have a soda with lunch if I wanted and no harm would come, but maybe an extra beat or two, which is not dangerous.
He did say I HAVE to quit smoking. My lung capacity is two liters under where it should be. I don't have COPD, but he said if I continue to smoke as much as I am, I will soon. Sooo.. anyone with creative ideas for that, please post. I've tried traditional methods and nothing works.
Thanks for listening!!!!!
