    I had a weird thing happen this morning first time i ever experienced this I was sitting down and all of a sudden my felt like it was trying to come through my chest wall i felt no shock so i don't think it was the defibulator i know i hurt from it this was just a second or two, but it got my attention and i got very lightheaded, i layed down for a while now i feel fine, but i don't think i want to go through that again being alone in the house well i just thought i needed to tell someone, i sure don't want to call my husband at work he would come home and i don't feel he needs to come home

      I called Doctor Gilligan, he ask several questions and he said i can't be 100% but i think it may have been a very strong PVC, i told him it was the first time i felt it that strong, he said if it happened again today, don't hesitate to call him, he said it could have come from the fact he raised my CCB he has me maxed out on them 360mg a day to try to relax my heart and the fact i've been having alot of palpitations, but it really hasn't brought my BP down to where he wants it, it is still well i just took it while on the phone with him and it was 133/88 pulse 89, i have an appt on the 27th with him, so we'll see
