I just left my cardiologist appointment today after wearing a portable heart monitor for a month. Although the monitor reported heart rates as high as 179 with an average of 115-120, he didn't seem concerned. His suggestions was to develop a better treatment plan for my fibro but couldn't recommend what kind of doctor to see for that!
I also have myofascial pain syndrome that flares up at times and a lumbar injury with sciatica that limits my mobility. Since being diagnosed over 10years ago, the only time I felt "normal" was a month spent in Arizona with the dry heat warming up my joints and muscles then getting in the pool and exercising in it. After a week I had more energy and could be as active as I was before these ailments. However, I live in Kansas with very humid heat and experiencing all four seasons in a week!
I'm dissappointed in the cardiologist's response today. Basically telling me this is "my normal" and to focus on my fibro, Anxiety and get more exercise. What!?!?!
I don't see how a pulse of day 136 with feelings of dizziness, nausea, neuropathy, trembling and shortness of breath are ANYBODY'S NORMAL!!!
Has anyone else been through this? Have you found a treatment plan that helps? Do you think this cardiologist just blew me off? Has anyone else been told that tachycardia is dangerous?
Thanks! I'm just so angry and dissappointed that I'm really hoping somebody out there somewhere has some helpful advice.
Take care and love yourself!
I get that feeling when my esophagus spasms. Do you have acid reflux? Hiatal hernia?
@A MyFibroTeam Member I had to sneak out of the ER a few times and drive home drugged up lol. I made it
I have sinus tachycardia. Never thought of it being fibro related,but I was diagnosed with both of them around the same time later 20's
@A MyFibroTeam Member no worries, haven't been to the ER in 2yrs. Since I am on the fentanyl patch I am good. Thanks for caring. Not to many give a shit about me either especially my bi polar mother. She has got to b the way her moods r up and down like a yo yo. Hugs to you
