: I was diagnosed with Sinus Tacchycardia
: (rapid heart beat) over a year ago. I've been taking Inderal to slow down my heart enough so I won't notice
: it. What concerns me is that my docter couldn't find a cause to this, which I heard is rare. Usually it's a thyroid
: problem or caffeine, etc. but I've had numerous tests showing I'm fine, but also proving my condition. What bothers
: me the most is that the rapid heart beat wasn't why I went to the docter in the first place; that was a secondary
: symptom. It's hard to explain but what bothered me from the start was where my heart would skip a beat and then pound
: the next beat to make up for it. It didn't matter what I was doing, and the number and frequency of beats fluctuated
: constantly. I was supposed to be off of Inderal because I was told it's not very good to keep my heart slowed down for
: a long period of time. I was supposed to be on it for 3 months, which turned into 17 months. Also, not only did I have
: my dosage and below average blood pressure beforehand, but the frequency of taking the Inderal has changed without any
: reason such as stress, to back it up. Should I be worried about anything? Was I diagnosed 100% correctly?

If a cause cannot be found for Sinus Tachycardia, it is said to be Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia. They do not know what causes sinus Tachycardia although sometimes if you have an EP study done, they can find extra electrical pathways. If you haven't had an EP study done, I would highly suggest that you ask your EP cardio doc about one. Hope this has been helpful.
