I just had an interesting checkup. When I was connected to my doctor's computer, he could tell when I had been drinking, such as Christmas and my Birthday, by the spikes of dysrhythmia when I had a lot to drink! Life is just a ballance of coffee and alcohol, and both seem to effect me. Combinations of the two seem to do the worst. The doctor doesn't think I can do any permanent damage, but wants to put me on cumidin if I have more episodes to prevent stroke. I think I have enough blood thinners already between asprin and vitamins. Any thoughts?
