I had the 'pleasure' of spending 3 hours in the ER for heart palpitations. My blood work was really interesting - for one thing, my TSH came back at 5.260. I'm hypothyroid.
So now I have 3 different doctor appointments - Cardiologist, Endocrinologist and my Primary Care Physician. All three will no doubt spin off more appointments. FUN FUN FUN!
I've been taking a beta blocker for PVCs and a pill for high blood pressure. I'm not sure if the PVCs got worse or what. Blood pressure is normal. So who knows whats going on. I know one thing though -- Once I figure out what is causing the heart palpitations, I want to go out and get loaded! I haven't been drunk in well over 5 years.
One good thing came out of all this. For the first time since I had my bowel resection surgery and then started 6MP (summer 2005), my liver enzymes are NORMAL!! That made my day. It's strange, I have all these problems, and Crohn's isn't in the mix. I probably shouldn't have said that.
