Just a quick line. If a doctor even mentions “breathing test” run as fast as you can. I had mine yesterday and it was stressful, yucky and when I got home I was totally wiped out. I had to walk a mile to get there and I had an escort that walked with me,. At the halfway point she said “I am going to get wheelchair, you don’t look so good.” I was not doing good. I was panting, almost. The technician said if there is even a small amount of amiodran in that multaq it is probably the culprit behind the breathing Problems. The tests should come in today and I have an appointment but I am going to see if I can change it to Monday. Joe doesn’t like to drive when it is snowing and blowing and it is doing both and the wind is unbelievable. Today is his birthday. He is 77. The tech said it was 2010 that I was up to have one then so that is when they started trying ro get my heart in rhythm so it will be 5 years since they found the A_fib and has been under control since, unless it went out again. I had shortness of breath and spots in front of my eyes then. that was my symptoms. Spunky went with us both days. Joe said he was real good. and kind of enjoyed looking around. He is even getting better about howling at me when I say “all gone”after treats. in the bedroom but at 8 when he goes out he howls up a storm. Will let you know the results if I go today.
