Having a battery of tests to rule out serious heart involvement.. Episodes lasting maybe 3 seconds tha feel as if my entire body shuts down.. No arrithymia that I can feel, no pain or pressure , just have to hold the wall or a piece of furniture or somebody nearby and it passes. I feel as if I will pass out but never have.I have a slight mitro-vave prolapse but nothing serious.Blood pressure is normal, cholesterol runs 245, working on that!.These episodes have been going on for around 3-4 years but not frequently . Now they are occuring one or two a month. Have had EEG, ultrasound of carotids, CTscan of carotids (less than 50% blockage), echo-cardiagram, stress test scheduled next week.Blood work shows nothing but cholesterol abnormal.Wore the holter for 24 hours , showed arrithymia, and ventricukar ects
Scheduled now to wear cardio monitor for 30 days. I am curious about relationship of gall bladder removal and the remaining muscle function near heart and stomach that continues without gall bladder.
