Health Issues

Friday, February 7, 2014 @9:07:44 AM

For some time now I have been having some health issues,  weak spells with shaking, sweating, headaches and other problems, I have gone to my doctor and he tried some things but it never seemed to help. My son who is a Paramedic was home one Sunday when I was having a spell and he checked my blood sugar, which was about 97, then he listened to my heart, now for many years I have had a very slow heart rate, from what I understand most folks heart rate are around 60, mine is around the upper 30's to the low 40's. He said that my heart didn't sound right and that I should see a heart doctor, so I did. After a bunch of test and wearing a monitor I now have to have a pacemaker installed on the 14th of this month. Of course it's scary and makes one think about many things, but I have come to realize that if this is what I need and it will make me feel better then that is what needs to be done. I have been burning up the internet looking about pacemakers and watching You-Tube on how it's put in and how it works, it doesn't look that bad, but I'm no doctor. I just hope that all goes well and this is answer that I need to get my heath back on track, thanks for letting me share this.
