When is it time to go back to Cardiologist

Posted , 2 users are following.

My yearly checkup with Cardiologist is in September. I had an angiogram March 2018. Cardiologist found one artery at 70% but did not put a stint in it.

The last month or so I have feeling dizzy and faint feeling. Can't say I ever feel like I'm going to pass out.

At work I do a lot of walking. I never really get tired/fatigued even though I don't walk fast or very long at times usually a couple of minutes then I'm sitting still. But my hands turn red and every once in a while my upper arms tingling for a few seconds. After I rest my arms stop but my hands continue to be red and tingling a little.

My cardiologist said I needed to go backs to my GP and have him look at me. My GP nurse said on phone that Dr said to make an appointment with a specialist for the dizziness.

Frustrating setting in.

Should I try to make an appointment with cardiologist? or maybe find a new one?
