Customer Question

I am on a host of medications for RA, irregular heart rate, borderline hypertension, and hypothyroid.
I am often dizzy, and feel" spacy" when going out, feeling I'm going to fall. It's a
frightening feeling of not being in control.My BP is fine, and a CT scan showed normal.
So did blood test and inner ear disturbances.
What can I do to help me lead a more normal life?

What is the name of irregular heart rate? When did it start? Do you have any medications you started to take just before it started? Any other symptoms? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Does anything make it better or worse?

To answer your question, many medications cause side effects and untoward interactions.

I spend a lot of time streamlining medications, which is what your doctor should do.

I also replace medications with other interventions.

I am a double board certified US doctor in both areas, medicine and integrative medicine.

Let me know exactly what medications you are on, and I will give you more answers.
