Post Tachycardia and Adrenal Dysfunction

I am very new to this so am wondering if anybody could tell me if the tachycardia has to be dealt with every time. Since it is just a cardiac response to the adrenal dysfunction, can it be ignored? If so, at what rate? If I can keep my resting heart rate under 120 is this okay to ignore?

I had it too. Went for several EKG's, all was fine. They actually told me to calm down because my heart was racing during the test. I told them I WAS calm. They didn't believe it.

It went away after I finally got my thyroid and adrenal meds balanced properly. It also helps to have no stress in your life.

I wonder if caffiene is also a factor. I seem to be really sensitive to caffiene, but the tachycardia seems to be a constant for me. My docs don't seem too concerned.

Yes, caffiene can be factor.

My doc wasn't concerned either. She said lots of people have higher heart rates (mine was around 100 resting in bed at night). I didn't believe it though because my heart rate was always around 65 before. But docs don't listen to things like that for some reason. Mostly I think they just didn't believe me. One EKG even came back with a note saying the patient was too anxious to get a proper reading. Now you would think the doc would say, "why were you so anxious?" but no, she just repeated some people have high heart rates.

My heart rate is very normal now, 65 when resting again. Do you think my doc notice? Nope she's never said a thing about it even after comments from me about my improved heart rate. So YOU have to be concerned for YOU, assuming this is a new thing for you.

A resting heart rate of 100? I wish. My laying flat in bed for an hour rate is now between 110 and 125. Walking across my kitchen puts it up over 130. I walked my dogs on the weekend for the first time in a long time. Fainted 3 times before I got home and heart rate was 190 when I got home. Had a dumb-*** at ER who did a 12-lead, refused to listen to me and then gave me Ativan. I was not a bit anxious. It supressed my breathing further and I was fortunate enough to lose consciousness for about 2 hours as a result! Caffeine is NOT an issue here. I drink 2 cups of tea a day. Seeing the specialist this a.m. and hoping for results from tests and some answers.
