I am a 57 yr old male and I have been suffering with light headedness and pressure in my head. I have a heart murmur but had an echo and did the stress test and the cardiologist said that it didn't look like the value needed to be replaced yet. I thought it might be a vascular problem and had a CAT scan and an angiogram of my head. They didn't find any blockage but I do have an anyuresum but it is small and will need fixing sometime but it isn't not what is giving me the problems. When I lay down I do get better but sometimes I feel like I am going to black out and my heart beats rapidly. I have some numbness in my finger tips. I also went to an ear, nose and throat doctor and he said I don't have vertigo. I have gone to so many doctors and had so many tests. This has been going on for almost 5 months. I am very fustrated. I talked to my cardio doctor today and she is going to schedule a cardio/angiogram. Does anyone have any ideas what is wrong with me?
