Just Got Out Of The Hospital
I had a couple of"Black Out Spells" where I lost vision in both of my eyes. I just got out of the hospital tonight. My Cat Scan and MRI of the brain looked good. No strokes or anything. They didn't have the heart studies back yet, but they let me go anyway. They believe it could have been a combination of causes. Ocular Migraine or my heart rate dropping too low. When I was in the hospital my heart rate dropped several times in the upper 30's to the lower 40's. My BP would also drop at this time to the 80/40. They took me off one of my medications and said I should be fine. I don't have a lot of faith in doctors anymore, but they let me go home with a pulse in the 40's. I do have a history of migraines, but have never totally lost my vision before. I guess we will just go on and hope for the best. I am still very tired and weak, but maybe being off that medicine will help in a couple of days.
