Brief Answer:
No!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Dizziness alone is not a sign of heart attack. Heart attack would at least come with chest pain or some chest discomfort. Stay calm and continue monitoring only. Unless something else comes up, there is nothing to be worried about at this time. The dizziness was probably transient and in no way caused by a heart problem. This shouldn't recur again.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.

I was put on midodrine hcl 5 mg 3 times day and pindolol 5 mg 2 day for my synopy. My bp is dropping lower when I exercise even a little, ie walking around the block, shopping. Dr increased my dosage from 2.5mg midodrine to 5 mg
and the bp is lower than before. When exercise 99/54 which will last for hrs. I am drinking water, propel, and eating well. Should I continue with the meds until I call the cardio on Monday or should I stop. I have a head ache and am having nausau as well.
