I have been suffering with this debilitating disease for several years and in fact a week ago spent several days in the hospital having many tests to possibly determine the cause of my dizziness, lightheadness and at times passing out. The test on the whole were negative and left me with the same problem and no explanation. But my cardiologist had me discontinue the three heart medications that I was taking. Atenolol, Norvasc, and Diovan. I am still having periods of lightheadedness and nausea and I wonder if I will have to put up with this for the rest of my life.
