i am new here , but i have a problem i would like to ask about. I just found out over the weekend that I am having problems with my heart & blood pressure. They both keep going down, the more my blood sugar goes up. My doc wants me to use a halter monitor for a while, but I have never had to use one before. They tried to do a stress test through IV , but my heart could not take it. I have been through a lot in the last 2 months. My brother-in-law is in the hospital and has been since 6-26-2011, when someone threw a moltov cocktail through his & my sister's bedroom window. Totally distroying the house and hitting him in the face, burning him over 40% of his body. He has been through surgery 3 times already & still needs to go through more of them to help him heal. I don't know how much more I can take with my heart the way it is. I have had problems with my heart for the last 5 almost 6 years now and was never put on a holter monitor. If anyone can give me some advice, I would greatly appretiate it a lot. I don't think my sister could handle losing me at this point in time.
