Advice & Tips: Had not had an unexplained fall until 2016, which was the result of severe dehydration. Has completely curtailed any prior arrythmia or heart problem. Only known side effect is the inability to have an MRI for my degenerated top 5 cervical vertebrae/discs that need fusion, but cannot be operated on w/o the MRI.
Cost: < $25 monthly
