I was Diagnosed with MVP 11 years ago.
My physician told me that I have,irregular heart beat; palpitations; arrhythmia. (Occasionally)
My Blood Pressure has always been EXTREMELY LOW.
So low, that @ times they can't get a reading.
I have not been medicated for it, as of yet; as the doctor said it is better to have low blood pressure, than high blood pressure.
For the past 2 months I have experienced low heart rate, palpitations everyday and several times a day.
It is a strange kind of feeling. It really makes me feel out of it.
I have been experiencing dizzy spells; staggering.
I get a piercing pain, shooting thru my head, from the back to the front.
It is sudden... with no warning but lasts only seconds.
I recently had a brain scan.
The Radiologist Conclusion: Microvascular ischemia versus primary demyelinating process to be considered.
I have an appt. with a Neurologist in January.
I seen my Cardiologist yesterday and told him about the palpitations etc; etc...
He told me that my heart sounds fine and I have nothing to worry about.
He put me on 25mg Toprol-XL; and I have a follow-up in a month.
I just read that, a person with LOW BLOOD PRESSURE, SHOULD NOT take TOPROL-XL.
Is this correct?
Should I maybe see another Cardiologist?
I am wondering if my other Medical Conditions could play a role in all of this???
With everything going on here, I am totally confused!
Could you please give me some advice?
Thank You so much for your time and any advice you may have!
