I hear that you have been through hell and back. You need to find out what is causing your BP to swing so bad, or you could fall and ruin a good floor with your head :)

Something you said doesn't make sense. You said you doctor performed an arteriogram and said something was wrong, and he would set you up for a nuclear stress test. The arteriogram is the gold standard for determining what's wrong with the heart, blockage wise at least. The nuclear stress test is usually done before the arteriogram. The stress test is non invasive. Maybe he was going to do an echocardiogram on you?

I would call him up and scream into his ear. I have been forgot about before. It happens to many of us, especially with some cardiologist. Starting today, take responsibility for your own health and see your doctor soon!

Good luck,

Jack
