    Went to the doc today and got outfitted with a Holter Monitor for an abnormal cardiac rhythm. I've got to wear it for 24 hours to see what my ticker is up to.
    No big deal. Prolly just part of the aging process. No harm in finding out what is going on.
    You?

    The whole world of loneliness, poverty, and pain make a mockery of what human life should be. I long to alleviate this evil, but I cannot, and I too suffer. Bertrand Russell

      I'm ok. I couldn't get back to sleep at 4 a.m. so kinda falling over at the moment, fighting my cat for the couch.

    •  You might even check into alternative therapy (1+ / 0-)

      like acupuncture. Seriously. The heartbeat is regulated by the medulla in your brain. So your heart only does what the brain tells it to do. If there is any block in the message to your heart, you can get in irregular beat.
      They can give you a pacemaker, even an implanted defibrillator. But it still won't CURE what is awry.
      Find a GOOD acupuncturist, preferably a Chinese medical practitioner for a consult. Don't know where you are, but there is an excellent one here in Mass. they might be able to give you a referral.
      Good luck!
