Today I was really light-headed and short of breath every time I stood up, just like yesterday. So I got out the oximeter and checked my O2 level and pulse rate. O2 was 94-95% and pulse rate was 135, which is a little high with no exertion. My sister called and asked what I was up to and when I told her, she made me promise to go see the doctor. I woke up my son and asked him to drive me to the ER and my daughter met us there.
Once again, no real answers, but they ruled out an imminent heart attack. :-P The doctor said dizziness is very difficult to find a reason for. My blood work all came back fine and my heartbeat was regular, just a little fast once in a while. EKG was done, too and that was fine. She recommended following up with a cardiologist and getting an echo and ultrasound done on my heart. At least this visit was under 4 hours instead of 8! So tired of not feeling good.
Today I had a serious craving for Cheetos. Thankfully I was not well enough to traverse the aisles of the grocery store. ;-)
