Patient : My mom is 93 and has been in good heath - still driving etc. However about 2 weeks ago they put her on a new blood pressure medicine and her heart rate went down to 46. She stopped taking the medicine. When she went to the doctor they told her she did not need to take any blood pressure medicine now. The problem is she is tired all the time and takes a nap after she does anything. She has also lost her appetite. Her blood tests according to doctors are all good. Checked for anemia, thyroid. Could someone have mono without the sore throat. She asked if they tested her for mono and they said they did not think that was the problem and did not do the test.
