After a gentle excercise class I recently experienced, dizziness and an inability to sweep the floor. Then my left arm was going numb had a bad headache, rang ambo at request of local doc. My blood pressure was 185/95 normal 90/50. I also had severe chest pains in ambo. probs. swallowing and they were going to admit me to cardiac care ward but the registrar rang my heart spec.at home and he said that I had been having problems with a daughter and it was stress and I was to go home immediately. They sent me home on my own in the middle of the night. This was Thursday night, i still feel washed out and not well. Do you think I had a mini stroke? Also on Tuesday night I had a bit of a turn and the room was crashing down on my head and I felt dizzy.
I still feel very tired and washed out. and I have slight blurred vision in my right eye. I dont have the limp arm or headache anymore.
They did a brain scan to test for a bleed and a chest xray, and a few blood tests. I take aspirin because i have a faulty mitral valve, and beta boc for heart racing. I have had a huge problem with my daughter but I wasnt thinking of that, for over a week and I had just been to an excercise class. I dont have severe anxiety but I am very hurt, She has stolen thousands of dollars from me and wont talk to me.
I still feel very tired and washed out. and I have slight blurred vision in my right eye. I dont have the limp arm or headache anymore. I did have many mini strokes two years ago and they found I had a hole in my heart, they did surgery and mended it.
I also had numerous mini strokes two years ago, they wouldnt believe me, and they finally found I had a hole in my heart, they did surgery and mended it, I havent had any since. I have also had a blocked celiac artery 4 years ago and had to have a bypass operation. It was blocked 95%. Took them 18 months to believe me that it something more than diverticular disease.
Hi, the hospital that I was at is a large hospital. I think its a teaching hospital. And that is how they found the blocked celiac artery by prodding and looking further.
I agree, Im going to find another heart specialist and get a second opinion. It probably would be too hard to collect all my files.
The attending doc. and the sister didnt agree with me being sent home, and were furious saying, the limp arm and chest pains were not stress related and were physical
