Thanks again to all who repsonded.
To 'Frustrated1' I do occasionaly sweat and feal sick to the stomach and dizzy when passing a bowel motion especially when I have a lot of skipped beats/ palpitations. Just to clarify its not an immediate cessation of palpitations after passing a bowel motion its a gradual reduction in the skips/palpitations usually over the following hour until they are to a level that I can handle or ignore.
To Super Sarah thanks for a Super link
I have now had a chance to look into this a little further and its amazing that all my troublesome areas seem to be where the Vagus nerve extends to and terminates (including the heart). Thank you so much for this. I have an MRI of my Spine and Head (Brain if they can find it lol) very soon and will ask if this is what they are looking to see has been damaged (re Cervical fusion as the Vagus nerve is one of the items that can be damaged during the fusion surgery) It could be me doing my own math and making it fit but its well worth broaching the subject with the Neurosurgeon especially since the Cardiologist has come to the conclusion is Autonomic/Neru Cardiogenic .... so thanks again Sarah
To Rorie your Cardiologist could indeed be right but theres great conflict between Cardiologists over a heart and stomach link its best to undergo all the Cardiologic tests and find that you have a structurally sound heart before you begin to try and find other causes. A stress test would seem reasonable as well as an Echo. And if you want 'Ultra' piece of mind a PET scan or Thallium which is about as conclusive as you can get
But if the Atenolol is working it looks like your Cardiologist has nailed the problem first time around
How often did you get the skips if you dont mind me asking.
To JanettoB thanks for mentioning the hemoglobin
I haven't asked specifically aboout this and only hope with all the blood tests I have had they have checked it .... but one never knows so I will be sure to ask next time I see my GP or specialist . Thanks
Again to all out there wishing you have the best day that you can
