The dizzy spells have a name, Atrial tachycardia.
The cardiologist reviewed the results of that cumbersome Holter monitor and discovered some mild episodes of Atrial tachycardia.
I have two options:
- Do nothing.
When a spell hits I can treat it like plugged ears on an airplane –yawn,
cough, etc to clear it. I had
discovered this on my own. Coughing just
seemed a natural response – and it works for now.
- The medicinal route would be to take a beta-blocker. I will keep this option on-hold. I can call and get a prescription anytime. These would be taken on bad days – when having a lot of episodes. Beta-blockers work but have side-effects which I’d like to avoid.
It’s a relief to finally identify the source of the dizzy spells. The MRI/MRA and ultra sound had turned up nothing – as I learned Tuesday at the Neurologist.
Now it’s back to life as normal
