Experienced a bit of dizziness with sweating that came on

Customer Question

Experienced a bit of dizziness with sweating that came on over a period of 1/2 hour or so. Laid down for about 1/2 hour and got very cold . I am not on any meds for heart just naproxen/famotodine for arthritis. I took an aspirin and blood pressure. 149/92 . Now again ton145/85. Have had this happen before with the same symptoms.

This is angina until proven otherwise.

You need to have someone take you do the ER.

EKG and cardiac enzymes.

Even if these are negative, you need a 24 hour holter.

And, maybe a stress test.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

I do experience heartburn with initial exertion

That even makes the work up more important.

Dismissing this as heartburn could miss heart disease.

Good luck.

Let me know how it goes.
