I am a 49 yr old M with HX HTN, COPD, Sleep Apnea, Borderline DM, Hypothyroidism, Vit D Deficiant, Bells Palsy, GERD, Arthiritis, High Cholesterol. I had some symptoms about 5 days ago. I was outside doing very light work removing a motheor from an old dryer. I became Diopheretic, Pale, Cool, Clammy and Just didnt feel right. Had no pain. Afterwards for about 36 hours kept having dizziness, nausea, lower pulse rates and would become pale to family. Didnt matter what I was doing sitting, standing, walking across floor, what ever. Went to the ED for eval on Friday and they could find nothing Life Threatening. Have an appt with My PCP tomorrow for follow up. Any ideas what may have caused this? Also, Thursday and Friday night after I sat down, I noticed that my heart rate would become Bradycardic. Just looking for ideas, I know I need and I am going to PCP for eval.

You will probably be refereed to a cardiologist for a Holter monitor test and stress test.

You have quite a medical history.

"Any ideas what may have caused this?"

Realistically, all one can do here is guess or speculate, which just makes bad medicine for anyone involved.

Hope your PCP (and any other doctor/s you may need to see, such as a cardiologist) figures out what's been goin' on.

Best of luck down the road of life.

Take care,
