Interesting day. I received a message from the heart monitoring folks at 11:30, asking if I was having any unusual symptoms. I said no....just a very brief dizzy spell. Well, this afternoon, they called back 2 more times, encouraging me to go to ER. I said not until I speak with the Doctor , as this would be trip number 7 since 10/28/15. Doctor called . HR running over 150.....I was simply feeling tired. He and I agreed that I could rest , drink a couple of glasses of ice water and see what happens. 40 minutes later, HR down to 94. Doctor called back. He had spoken to the specialist that did I the ablation this past Monday. Apparently along with the A-FLUTTER, I have some V-TACH. He called in cardizem ER and told me to take it once daily, starting tonight. Other than lisinopril, I have been on no other meds. No one has said anything to me about this. I probably overdid my activity this morning, and will watch it more carefully. Does anyone know what I should expect from the Cardizem?
I am trying so hard to maintain my cool, but really?
