Low Heart Rate

Posted by , 06 June 2012 · 640 views

I had the tilt-table test, was fine, just mild syncope. But, and this always seems to happen, I find out today when I went to doc about the thyroid that during the test my resting heartbeat was 58 and highest was 98.

So, my doc ruled out any thyroid changes that might have cropped up and instead said, because of the slow heart rate, your going to a cardiologist to see what, if anything, is going on with your heart.

So that's where I stand with the whirlwind of specialists I've seen and have gotten incidental diagnosis from. I'm thinking, what can a cardiologist find that has nothing to do with the heart. At least that's the pattern so far.

On the good side with all my GI issues resolved. I have notices that the inflammation in my back and hips has really improved. So much that I used to take a high dose ibuprofen and a muscle relaxer 2 to 3 times a day. I am down to a couple of ibuprofen and maybe one muscle relaxer per week. Quite the change if you ask me. I haven't even taken a pain killer for the fibro in awhile and I plan to cut back the de-sensatizing med next week and see what happens. I'll know right away because my fibro pain is pressure on skin. I haven't been able to use a bar of soap in the shower for many years.

Next stop: Cardiology, lol.

Be well.
