I find that when I sit that it seems to cut off the circulation to my head and I fall asleep or become drowsy. I also have a problem with my arms falling asleep. I did have by-pass surgery, a lima and 3 vien grafts. The vien graphs closed down within a few monthes. I'm not sure if it's my heart or what.:confused:

  • :) ;) Hello Joel, this is my first time at this so please bare with me. It seems that you have gone through alot and see you are weary of the symptoms you are having. I would hope that you would seek a doctor in the cartiac field. Possibly a couple of different opnions would be in your favor. I have been sick myself for so long, that I take it one moment to one day at a time. I am fortunate with a loving husband. I hope you have the support. Please excuse any misspelled words. Life is to short and we need to find away to take care of ourselves. So make those appointments and seek help as soon as you can. Take care.I find that when I sit that it seems to cut off the circulation to my head and I fall asleep or become drowsy. I also have a problem with my arms falling asleep.
