When should I be concerned about lightheadedness? I've had cardio workups done in the last 2yrs. I wasn't really feeling the lightheaded episodes at the time of the workups. I was lying down, today, and all of a sudden felt lightheadedness, like I would pass out. My heart started racing, and it went away after a maybe 15-20 seconds. I checked my oxygen level with an oximeter when I started to feel the lightheadedness and it was normal.

Yesterday evening I suddenly started to sweat and feel my pulse increase. This lasted about 20 minutes. However, since then I'm fine when sitting down, but when I stand up, my equilibrium is off and my vision, while clear, makes the room "wobbly". Also, it impairs my walking in that I feel like I could fall over at any time. It is better today, but only by a little bit. Also, I tried eating dinner last night and promptly threw up, which is extremely rare. I had a small breakfast and ate lunch over a half hour ago and no incidents with that yet. Any thoughts/advice? Thank you!JA: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?Customer: No fever, rash or loss of appetite. My head from temple to temple going around my forehead feels a little heavier. Also I haven't slept well the past few weeks and only got about 2 hours last night.JA: How long have you had a fever? Do you have any respiratory symptoms?Customer: No fever. No known respiratory symptoms.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Deep snorer and when I get nervous, I tend to break out in a cold sweat and my hands shake for a few minutes.

What are the failure modes (if any) for a catheterization procedure which supposedly will examine the health / physical condition of the arteries of my wife's heart, and insert a stent if a blockage is found ?What would be recommended as "due diligence" for a prospective patient customer in selecting a physician to perform such a procedure?

My father had a heart attack 9 days ago in his LAD. It was confirmed to be minimal damage, had 2 stents placed in side by side the long way. EF is 45% and docs think this will go into a normal range within 3 months, all other arteries including carotid look good. They believe it was his heavy smoking plus extras, but mostly the smoking. He feels great, taking BP meds/cholesterol meds/brilinta/baby asprin. Normal weight, no diabetes. He enjoys a couple drinks a day which of course he has stopped for now. When can he resume to a glass of wine or 2? He is also doing the Mediterranean diet as well. No other medical conditions.
