Recent Rapid Heart Rate
Well my diagnosed pericarditis has passed. I no longer feel how I did. 600mg ibuprofen did the trick. Anyhow I was at the EP office on Thursday and they changed some settings. One I recall was called CLS. Well ever since yesterday I've been having tachycardia episodes with minimal exercise and at rest. My heart rate spikes to about 140 and then it comes back down pretty quick. I have SSS caused by nocturnal bradycardia and nocturnal sinus arrest, never tachy. Do you guys think it's a setting? I'm also still short of breath at rest and exertion too. I felt this prior to PM so it's not new. They are giving me a CPEX test this week so hopefully that will shed some light on the issue. I've had every other test under the sun as well. ECG's, a CTA, an Echo, a Stress-Echo, Zio Patches, a Biotel 30 Day Heart Monitor and they can't tell me why I'm short of breath. I just have the Brady and arrest at night. My EJF is 65%, I have no calcium deposits, no stenosis, no plaque, no enlarged heart, valves work great on echo etc etc. I pass everything! I swear ever since mid October I was totally fine but ever since I received this diagnosis it's like I've fallen apart. I suffer from anxiety as well. Anyhow if anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance!
You know you're wired when...
You take technology to heart.
But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
