Went to the GP yesterday, and now I have to go see a cardiologist, so he can try and figure out why my atria went all crazytime on me.  And I see the value in that, but it’s also frustrating, because sometimes they never figure it out.  My mother-in-law had the same problem two years ago; they never figured out what happened and it never came back.  

On the other hand, I’m now pretty sure I’ve had this before, but it never lasted long and it never before caused me to faint.  So there’s that.  I want to get to the bottom of this, but doctor appointments are never convenient for a teacher.

I really don’t want this to be a chronic condition; that will screw a lot of things up. The more I read about the drugs I might have to take, the more I want to throw things.  So I try to tell myself that this is likely a fairly unique event and that there’s no real indication I’ll have to go on those things.  But it’s a little scary.

    I’m sorry this is happening to you 😦 It sounds scary. I wish you an easy, clear diagnosis.

    This would have me horribly nervous too, Michael. Had to struggle with a few such emergent cases in recent years. May this just be a passing biological fad in your body.
