Well it seems something maybe going on with my heart. This random flutter in my throat that causes me to cough, a heart that seems to have a low grade ache on occasion and a normal stress test but a rapid spike in my BP 180/100 as I completed the test. I am three and a half years out from my bypass surgery in 2007 and I have recently been taken off my third statin three months ago because of adverse reactions. My recent labs were awful. Triglicerides and cholestrol have climbed to 259 and 297 respectively. We are now trying pravastatin. The exercise I have been so diligent about has become such an effort to complete 30 minutes when I could previously go for an hour and feel like I still could go for longer.
I will have my third visit in a month to the cardio's office the beginning of December. So far my BP medicine has been doubled and I no longer have the sensation that my ears are blocked and the confusion and unwell feeling I had has disappeared. But I still have this flutter and occasional ache. Anyone else have had experience with symptoms like this?
