Hi I was wondering if anyone else also gets other symptoms such as shortness of breath, exercise intolerance,heat intolerance, lightheadedness, and constant palpitations besides tachycardia? I'm thinking there might be something more going on but not sure what to do, thanks 😊

      I have all of those as well. I have AVNRT tachycardia, Wolff Parkinson White, & Vaso Vagal Syncope Syndrome. Maybe it’s Vaso Vagal? My cardiologist has always said that’s why I experience those symptoms because they are “triggers” of this syndrome.

      Thank you! I will let you kno if I find out anything. I have an appointment on May 25 with a cardiologist so hopefully I'll get some answers

      M_K, Yes! Totally! My heartrate will go up to the 160's when taking a hot shower, taking a bath is out of the question and I'll feel like I could pass out. I hope you can find something out!😟

        @minionmaniac yess! I'm sorry you deal with this too, hope you get help, let me know if you get updates on diagnosis/possible diagnosis

      All of those. Suddenly worse after having kids and seems to get worse everyday. Just recently saw cardiologist for first time after medicaid problems. Just sent back my home monitor (Biotel) a few weeks ago and waiting for results. Anyone experience sudden vision going black and dizziness when taking hot showers?? I also get so tired of hearing people say it's because I need to exercise more.

      I'm probably going to be doing more testing too, as I can't go on like this. Hopefully we'll figure it out! And I feel the same way I can't do anything after work or on the weekends cuz I need that time to recover from my job because of the fatigue. I feel terrible that I can't help out my family more with work, etc. And yeah it's not like we wouldn't want to if we could!

      Have you looked into POTS?

      And I do believe the metoprolol is making my fatigue much worse. I dont have the motivation to do anything except lay around all day. I'm always afraid people think I just want to be lazy but it's more than that. I WANT to do things, I just cant.

      Yes I'm still waiting for a diagnosis as well. I have had tach episodes since I was a kid, but it has gotten way worse over the last couple of months. I am waiting to have some tests done on the 28th of this month. I will also let you know if I get a diagnosis.

      Also the metoprolol is causing me severe fatigue. Is that also making your fatigue worse?

    • minionmaniac

      632d

      I have noticed that consistently taking vitamin D and vitamin B12 has helped a little bit with my energy levels

    • minionmaniac

      632d

      Are you also still trying to get a diagnosis? I've been dealing with this since I was a little kid and it just keeps getting worse! If I do get a diagnosis I'll let you kno, maybe we have the same thing? And yeah same here I really struggle at my job. At one time I cut back to 2 days a week and then I quit for a while but who can afford to only part time? 😞

    • Kelsh

      I have EVERY single one of these symptoms. Including the severe chronic fatigue. To be honest, I've missed way too much work lately because these symptoms are just too much. When I'm at work I feel like crying because I feel so bad and want to leave. Anyone else do this as well? How do you cope and keep your job?

      Oh no I’m sorry :/ I definitely know how that feels

    • minionmaniac

      633d

      Yeah I actually had one a couple months ago that showed pretty much normal. But I'm thinking of just going to a cardiologist or at least switching doctors cuz mine isn't taking me very seriously 🙁

      Have you ever had an ECHO test? I got one last week and my pcp referred me to a cardiologist

    • minionmaniac

      633d

      Thanks for replying 😊 I feel for you becuz I kno how much it sucks. But that's a good thot, my thyroid levels are always on the low side so maybe that could be partly causing the heat intolerance?

    • AK11

      633d

      I had a full thyroid test but nothing showed up. The heat intolerance has gotten worse as I’ve gotten older

    • AK11

      633d

      I do too! I don’t have constant palpitations but they are random

    • minionmaniac

      635d

      Also constant severe fatigue
