I am having periodic sleepless nights due to pronounced dizzyness during my sleep, or when I try to sleep at night. It's very unnerving as I feel like I am going to pass out when I put my head down to rest. Blood pressure for this last episode seems normal (115/68) but pulse sometimes goes pretty low (43 last night for a spell as measured on my FitBit). This has happened two nights this past week. Otherwise, I seem to sleep reasonably well. I am wondering if this relates to drug side effects.
I recently had two stents put in my pLAD (April 14, 2018) and it's made a world of difference. No more angina and my energy is back. But these sleeping problems are causing me concern. I am on daily aspirin, Plavix (75mg) and Crestor (10mg). I have lost 13 lbs in the last month as I have moved to a mostly plant-based diet and have cut out all sweets, desserts, fast food, and red meat. And all meats save for the occasional chicken and fish piece. And I don't use salt very much at all.
So, with all these medications, weight loss, diet changes, and artery interventions, perhaps my dizzyness might be normal. Or is it? Should I be concerned? Perhaps there is heart damage that I am so far unaware of? If anybody can relate, that would be appreciated. Thanks
