| | Scary Dizzy Pains..now I have to wear a heart holster
I am 32 years old. Been on high blood pressure since my daughter was born (when I was 23) due to pre-eclampsia. When I went in for knee surgery a few months ago, the drs. discovered I had a left bundle branch blockage. A month later..I had a miscarriage and it was then my dizzy spells started. I hate saying dizzy spell, because you think of having an ear infection and get light headed. It isn't like that. I went to a Target in the halloween section with the flashing lights and it hit me like a train. My head roared and buzzed and my head and roof of my mouth buzzed. I couldn't see anything and just wished it away..I knew that if I let it get me I would be passed out. It faded in about 40 seconds and then I just felt yucky. 2 weeks later, same Target, same section..hit me again. A few days later..getting off of the elevator..same thing. And then again at a mall where the carpeting set it off.
I had gone to a cardiologist who did an echo and a stress test, all came out fine. So now scared - I went to my internist today and he thinks I have a heart condition that he says is common in woman of child bearing age and I would just take medicine. In order to diagnose it I have to wear a heart holster for 27 hours. If that doesn't show up..he wants me to wear a different heart monitor for 30 days..and then if nothing, he wants me to go to a neurologist to get checked out for brain tumor, MS or epilepsy. I am scared out of my mind. Advice? Anybody have this?
