Yesterday, had my CT enterography to check on the crohn’s after my major bleeding a few weeks ago. On my 60 + mike drive home I started to feel my heart racing jd had some shortness of breath.....yup, a fib reared it’s head. So got home and took my heart rate and blood pressure. Bp was all over the place and heart rate was running in the 130-140 range with me taking heart rate medications. Called the pcp, they suggested I take another pill I had and recheck in 30 min. If above 120 to go to Er. So of course ended up in the Er. They have since admitted me to the hospital. The afib is back under control with i.v. Medications. They also gave me another bag of blood some hemoglobin was steady at 7.8.
Not sure when they will release me, but I feel so much better than last night. The heart didn’t stop until about 330 am Which makes the afib episode lasting almost 12 hours non stop. They said that was a long time.
No results back from the ct scan yet either.
