So I’ve had tachycardia and palpitations for years. Recently they’ve increased to include trouble breathing, lightheadedness, and chest tightness. Today I went to the dr for it and have been told my symptoms are “heart failure esque “, which is only *slightly * terrifying. Anyone have anything similar?
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)
Is it trouble breathing because of anxiety? Have you had an EKG or echo cardiogram?
I’ve had an EKG and it’s fine (I’ve had more than I can count and they are all fine). The dr put in a referral to cardiology and I’ll get an echo there
If it helps, doctors tend to speculate out loud. Generally I wait for my test results.
thanks. My referral is already in so I’ll call on Monday
