Hi Lenny,

All I can tell yah is that your numbers are exactly like mine!

I was told that your blood pressure can change beat to beat.

Hope you are keeping this record for your doctor.

You said you always feel bad....what does that mean? Feeling bad to me means fatigued, no energy, slack, etc. I describe it like this: I have as much energy as a wet Kleenex!!

When you do any activity (including walking up a flight of stairs) do you feel short of breath? If so, all of this should be reported to your doctors. Sometimes all it takes is your pacemaker to be tweaked or fine tuned to you.

Hopefully some more folks on this wonderful site can tune in and give their opinions as I feel like I'm not getting my words out just right today.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Hi, feeling bad yes most of the time it is short of breath and pressure in the chest and can go on from there to feeling like I will lose lunch it does not take stairs make a sandwich and clean up by the time I eat I am short of breath.

Can't stop taking BP and pulse

I don't know enough to say what is going on with you, but I do know that some of us (myself included} have, at times, become obsessed with continually taking our pulse and blood pressure. My doctor made me throw away my store bought blood pressure machine and said that I was driving myself crazy. I also stopped taking my pulse. I feel much now. ted

You know you're wired when...

You take technology to heart.
