My cardiologist told me to watch for dizziness and shortness of breath. I have severe/moderate aortic value regurgitation and stenosis. I also have seasonal allergies. How can I tell if my dizziness is from seasonal allergies or my heart? I had a dizzy spell this morning, but I am also fighting with my allergies. Do the dizzy spells from the heart feel a certain way?
I'm looking at the results from a SPECT scan I had and most of it I don't understand. Except for the "severe extent of coronary atherosclerosis" calcium score 772. So I guess on top of having moderate aortic stenosis I also have coronary artery disease? The next cardiology appointment will be interesting.😣
I'm under tons of stress, and I can feel my heart flip-flopping around inside my chest. I have to calm down...breathe. Okay flip-flopping has stopped and has been replaced with a headache. Great.
No word from the hospital about the stress test. Maybe they forgot, maybe this is just a bad dream.
