Today the “check engine” light is on in my car.
Yesterday, the check-engine light came on in my head. After ignoring dizzy spells for a few days, I decided to call the doctor’s office and speak to the triage nurse. Of course, they insisted on seeing me, so I went in. When they found nothing wrong – all vitals normal, blood fine, the doctor referred me to a cardiologist. Doctor wants me to see a cardiologist this afternoon, and they were able to get an appointment on short notice – so that’s the course of action.
I’m staying home until I see the cardiologist. My doc thinks I may get an “event monitor” that hooks up to me and lets me press a button to record my vitals, etc during one of my episodes. I have some other tests scheduled for Friday morning as well.
I did leave the house to drive John to school – that’s when I noticed the check-engine light. Grrr.
