Lack of sleep

Post by pfargo » June 13th, 2018, 9:35 am

Anyone out there? I am feeling funny, I didn't sleep at all last night, feeling kind of weak and dizzy. I have been under a lot of stress lately as well. I am at work right now after no sleep last night and I am afraid something is wrong. Has anyone ever experienced this? My BP was 141/94 with a pulse of 91. What do any of you think.

Thank You,
Patty Owens

Call your Cardiologist. The sense something is not right is a CHF warning sign. May be nothing, but don't gamble, the odds are against you winning

I concur with Robo's advice. Something is wrong and you need answers ASAP.

All fine advice unless you drank 3 cans of RedBull at work because you were tired. :runn:

I agree, get in contact with your cardiologist. I had this sort of conversation this week with my cardiologist. We were talking about how I have come through a lot, and he told me to cut it out with the bugs and other issues, but also stressed that I have to follow my gut feelings and that I am the one who knows my body best. To never mess with how I am feeling. Over the past 20 years we have come through some eventful episodes not heart related and he told me in no uncertain terms to NOT DO IT AGAIN. From his mouth to God's ears. wavhi wavhi wavhi
