[IP] heart disease and type 'a' personality....
Lately I've been
having symptoms that scare me. The first episode went like this: I was
sitting down watching tv after dinner and started to feel short of breath.
I got up and then felt dizzy. I then checked my pulse and it was 60/bpm.
This has happened a few times in the last month. I checked my bg and it
was 126. I told my dr. and she is sending me for an EKG. I read some
articles on the web about heart disease and diabetic women. Pretty
scarey. Supposedly, symptoms for heart disease in diabetic woman
are hard to pick up because they affect the small blood vessels not the large
ones. I am also a type 'A' personality and get stressed easily, which
is another reason why I'm worried. Can anyone offer any advice as far as
getting the tests that will find the problem if there is
