I am 75, multiple autoimmune diseases, occluded femoral artery

Posted by grannyann @grannyann, May 7 1:02pm

Over the 2 weeks I have been awakened with cold sweats, nausea and acute lightheadedness. I barely make it to the toilet and I am so dizzy and sweating so much I have to lay down on the bathroom floor. I usually need to remain on the floor for 30 minutes before I am able to crawl to bed. I have a fully occluded femoral artery as well.

@grannyann Welcome to Mayo Connect. Those sound like some serious symptoms, especially since they are persistent.
Have you seen a doctor since this began? If not, it certainly seems like time to do so.
This may be a worsening condition, a reaction to medication, or a new medical problem
