 Tomorrow I get the results from having to wear the holter monitor for 30 days. I had to wear it because I have Myositis on the heart muscle caused from RA. It has caused me to have some pretty crazy heart rates. So we are praying that there is no damage. I am much better but still have symptoms. Palpatations, sweating, shortness of breath, and I still can't do the normal things I used to do just yet.. The thing is, the palps really don't bother even though they get pretty fast, but hopefully each time I have them I am not weakening the heart.  I really don't want to take anymore meds. We will see tomorrow.
I will give you all give an update...
Thanks for being there for me.

Morning!!!!
First of all, I hope you all are not having too bad of a day. I don't post on here everyday but I think of all of you everyday. You all are in my heart.
Well, Good news..NO DAMAGE !!! She said that it was just sinus Tachycardia. I have to just go through the symptoms until hopefully they fade off. So now I can work on this miserable weight I have gained. I am going to beg my Rheumy to taper me off the steroids. My cholesterol is off the charts and cardiologist wants to put me back on cholesterol lowering drug..so I am going to ask for the methotrexate again. It caused me some issues before but nothing compared to what I have been through so hey..hopefully he agrees with me. Any way that is my update and I want to wish you all well. And again thanks for being there for me.
