Sinus Tachycardia

Hello Everyone,

I have Sinus Tachycardia. I was truly dx with it by a Cardi doc today.

I did have a Halter Moniter done a couple years ago as well as a Stress Test done. Halter Monitor Heart rate was 87 which is when they hooked me up to some Machine (forgot what kind of machine it was) my heart rate was 115 on a Nueclear Stress Test I ACED a few years ago do not need to repeat as of now. YEA!!

He went through all my meds and none cause my condition...

The doctor does have me comming back tomrrow for a Echo though. What exactly are they looking for in the Echo?

I know he said that there can be underlying causes of Sinus Tachycardia but with some people there may not be any underlying causes and that is just the way their heart is. Their heart just beats fast. Hoping thats me!!

Any input would be aprreciated!!!

Re: Sinus Tachycardia

I have PVC's and ectopic beats. I had a run of strange ones (so I thought) that took myself off to the E.R.

I noticed on the discharge papers Sinus Tachy, that even though they saw all those irregular beats, they saw nothing really wrong and to do a follow up with my GP and Cardio.

Bottom line for 6 hours while lying in the hospital bed running tests and hooked up to the heart monitor. I could not get my beat to anything lower than about 117bpm.

Why is this so...... Stress and Anxiety. I have what they call white coat Syndrome a lot of the times. When I see a doctor or have tests done I stress. My heart rate goes through the roof and so to my blood pressure.

Basically before I left the ER my heart rate was 84 and blood pressure normal, because I was told I had nothing really wrong or dangerous and could go home, thus I calmed down.

What are they looking for in an Echo. Well probably nothing to do with your tachy beats. Echo show heart chamber size, valves and blood flow. A Standard test which most of the times during a normal investigation shows everything fine.

I am sorry but how one can be in a medical Center, hooked up to a machine for a test and have a resting heart rate measured accurately is beyond me. Everyone would stress to some degree even if they thing they are relaxed.
