My daughter is now 16 and since she has had CML is appears once in a while she will be dizzy in the morning or sometimes out of no where have chest pains in the diaphragm area and upper chest. She also gets a headache with this. Sometimes her right hand is tingly. Normally it eventually goes away in about 3-4 hours or she takes a nap and is better after. This week the same thing occurred at 6:30pm at night, but lasted into the next day. Oncologist had her go into emergency as they have been keeping track of her with taking Gleevec because there are not that many kids on it and the long-term effects are not known. Everything checked out ok again, but I have been noticing when she has these occurrences, her blood pressure is really low (90/80 over 50's).
Past history when she use to work out with a trainer he had noticed that when she exercised it seems her stats got lower instead of higher and her standing vs. laying blood pressure was pretty significant--this was just before being diagnosed with CML.
Has anyone every had anything like this occur? They have been monitoring her heart with scans and EKGs and such every so many months? Any info would be great. Thanks.
