Hello to all, and thanks to Stem cell pioneers for greeting me on my birthday, Nov. 15. Unfortunately on that day I was in hospital. I was admitted on the 13th for my palpitations which go up to 150. The doctor was alarmed by this and from something he saw in my 2D echocardiogram so he scheduled me for an angiogram. I have had these palpitations since way back it's just that now they have increased in frequency. So after my angiogram, the doctor tells me that there are no blockages of any sort, and he attributes it to anxiety or stres but the truth is I get these attacks even when I'm not stressed or have been resting. I do not know what triggers them. There have been many moments of stress where I did not get a single one. So now they tell me I need to see an electrophysiologist - dealing with the electricity in my heart. I want to know if anybody out there has had this type of problem and what they did. I dislike having the attacks because it makes it even harder to breathe. My doctor alos said it has nothing to do with my COPD. What do you think?
