Contrary to popular belief, I am not heartless... or so says the cardiologist I saw today.
The good news: I passed with flying colors. I expected to, though, so it was no surprise. My doctor saw a teeny weeny abnormality on my EKG during a physical. Normally he wouldn't have worried about it, but I'd also been complaining of dizziness. Were almost certain we knew what was causing the dizziness (low blood pressure caused by too high a dose of blood pressure medicine), but the two things together made him want to do a sanity check.
The slightly better news: every time he checked my blood pressure, he said, "That's really good." Well, sometimes he added, "Maybe too good... it's borderline low."
I think my doctor is on vacation this week. Next week I'll call him, share the numbers, and ask if I can stop taking it completely. That would be lovely.
