Hospitalization and CFS/FM
I have been hospitalized twice the last month for chest pains and tachycardia of 180 beats per minute. I have received every cardiac test there is. I have had irradiated chemicals injected, CAT scans, echocardiograms, x-rays, stress tests, I sear they must have taken gallons of blood.
As you have guessed I am in the biggest CFS/FM flare of all times. It has taken me a week just to sit on the couch. My fatigue is whipping my a**.
This Monday I am having a Cardiac Ablation. Essentially they are going to stick a catheter wire in my heart and burn the areas of my heart where the electrical problems are. They are hoping that this will get rid of my racing heart episodes. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to local annestetics so I'm hoping they will give me enough "happy juice" to make the 6 hour procedure a happy time. Doesn't that sound like fun?
I'm taking bets on how this ablation will beat me down. I'm a teacher on summer vacation but I don't wan't to spend my entire vacation in bed.
