Taking diuretics can cause heart racing and palpitations...dizziness, lightheadedness. Did your doctor look into that or do your see any correlation between the two, drug and symptom?

    Hope you find the cause and it is easy to fix...

    Hugs.

    I take lasix and potassium also. It could be related to that. I think he is checking that with my labs but not sure. I have heart problem's. I have been wondering about my kidney's for a while. Because I have foam in my urine. My labs show protein. But when I do the 24 hour test. It comes back normal. My doctor tell me my kidneys are fine. I would like to see a Nephrologist. But been unable to get a referral. My doctor asked me if I change any meds. I chaged 1 med a few month ago. I was taking naproxen and changed to mobic. I'm going to change back to naproxen because mobic hasn't helped with joint pain all.

    I am going to volunteer at the walk for lupus in Charlotte on Saturday because I can't walk. My husbands walking. I hope I make it though that day since I'm not feeling well.

    Thank so much. and hugs back.

    Thanks so much for your prayers. That is so sweet of you. hugs

    Yes I have a urologist. But I get so frustrated going there because I make a appointment with the Dr., and when I get there I never see a Dr. They always have a Physician Assistant see me. I've been there serval times. And never seen the Doctor yet. I've even told them I wanted to see the doctor when I made my app. But got there and still didn't see the doctor. I think I might go to my Mother Urol but it's a long ways off. Thank so much. hugs

    I still have problems. I hope I find out something from my labs. I have to take Cheddar to the vet Saturday for his shots. Then at 3:30 tomorrow, I go to the lupus walk. I'm not walking because I can't walk. I'm volunteering. My husbands going to walk. I had been looking forward to It. But now don't feel like it. But going to go anyway.

    Just wanted to pop in to tell you I have been following this. I feel so bad that you can't have the tests you need.

    Praying for you,

    Got real sick last night. It was Gorey so I won't go into details. My joints hurt worse then they ever have. Still having the heart,blackout problem. and clamminess. I'm also very swollen I was thinking about going to ER. Then my husband called he was upset, because they had a meeting at his job today. They told them they was cutting every body's pay at the company. That comes as a shock because at the first of the week we were talking about how things had picked up. So when my husband called, I couldn't tell how bad I'm feeling. He has enough to worry about. I'm really sacred and hurting. I can't go to ER or have test things are really tight

    Sorry to unload on everybody like this. I just do a lot of fun stuff on my computer to try to keep my mind off of everything.

    Please pray for me because that's all I have to count on right now.
