Age 84, pace maker, de-flib installed, pace maker installed, by-pass surgery 9 years ago, and now on cardiologist appropriate drug regimen, I note cold fingers when moving around, blue finger nails at base, as I resume quiet body activity coldness recedes and blue nails disappear. I am still active in a normal day. No pain or discomfort anywhere in body, active or quiet.
