Greetings lance4510 Welcome to the healthboards! My sympathies. A cardiac enzyme test might be useful. I would quit smoking, walk to lose weight, eat a mostly plant based diet avoiding fats, sweets, alcohol, chemicals, food additives. A visit to the eye ear nose throat physician might be useful to find out what happened in the ears. I might want an angiogram of the head or Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the head for blocked arteries or aneurysms might be good to check for if he finds nothing. Often when people are overweight arteries and blood vessels fill with plaque and arteries in the heart and head are both vulnerable places.
