Crappy day at the Hospital
« on: April 20, 2017, 03:24:05 PM »
I'm spending the day at the Hospital. Apparently my new migraine preventative medication lowered my heart rate down to 38 bpm. Which is not a good thing. And it's not back up to where they want it yet over 5 hours later.

Oh no!  That's very low.  I hope they are able to stabilise you soon and you can go home and sleep in your own bed.  Do you have some entertainment with you?

Thanks guys.

I was there from 1015-1015 yesterday and they still don't know what's going on.

They were completely unsuccessful in taking blood until after 930pm. On the plus side I didn't have elevated levels of any heart related issues, but they still don't know for sure why my heart rate was 44 when I left.

I got to come home but I feel like absolute butt again today. We're calling the doctor's in a few hours to see what the rest results were.

Just an update:

Spoke with the doc awhile ago and my bloodwork is normal, nothing elevated or low. So no medical reason (other than the beta blockers) that they can think of for why my blood pressure and heart rate is down so low.

Yeah. Checking in my throat it's a bit slow, more like 60 BPM. But that's way better than yesterday.

Scary :(

There's a really good dr for autonomic issues (HR dropping far more than expected falls into that category), Dr Mittal in London if it becomes a bigger problem. I hope they sort it out for you quickly! Glad you're doing a bit better today.
