Congestive Heart Failure

I went to the gym this morning around 8:00am I was feeling fine. I don't eat anything that early in the morning before my workout only about 1 cup of water. Today about 8:30am I started feeling very weak no energy and not able to stand up or walk normal. Waited about 5 minutes until I was able to walk to my car, drove home only live 1 mile from the gym got home safely took my blood pressure 70/54, took again 30 minutes later 83/54 and ate a bowl of Oat Meal. I don't know what to do when your blood pressure is that low. My schedule doctor appointment is in September. What do you do when your blood pressure is low.

    If you are really concerned call your doctor right away and ask to get in now! Don't second guess. It may be nothing but better safe than sorry. When I had my chest pains, I delayed seeing a doctor for a day and that could have been a critical mistake. When I did get in, they took my EKG and told me they were going to get me to see cardiologist right away and if that wasn't possible, I was told to go to the ER. Long story short, I did get to see the cardiologist who scheduled a stress test which resulted in a hospital visit and bypass surgery. Please don't take chances! Find out what's wrong.

    I wish you all the best!
