My 89 yo moms dr wants her to go to a cardiologist because she may have “sick sinus syndrome.”
Her symptoms have been - almost fainting on occasions. She recovers from these episodes when I apply cool towels and hydration and in about 15-20 minutes she is back to normal. It seems to occur when she gets overheated. She has also mentioned shortness of breath on occasion. Has weakness in legs - from staying in bed too much. And Low blood pressure recently 105/63 - so we took her off the bp meds for now. We just did blood labs and a urinalysis to check for uti’s as well. Getting her to drink enough water is a constant struggle.
Just curious if anyone else has heard of this or seen similar symptoms-
I am making the appointment with a specialist next week. However, Dr appointments and treatments are a challenge with her current dementia — so trying to do as much research as possible. Thanks
