So, it's been a long time since I've been on the forum.
I just had my annual follow-up with my GI on Monday. To preface, I have not had a flare or major symptom of UC since the first year of my diagnosis when I was 11. I was hospitalized twice (a week in Sept 2001 and a week in June of 2002) and a mini-flare around Aug 2002, which I was given an infusion of Remicade, which I think stopped the mini-flare. Nothing since then. My meds are listed in my signature. Anyway, this visit, my GI told me that my resting heart rate has been high for every visit I've had with her and from my records with my pediatric GI. On Monday, my BPM was 122. Normal is 60-100. My blood pressure was fine. They use the wrist cuff. I do get "nervous/anxious" when going to the doctor. Oddly enough, I get anxious about
having high blood pressure because my mom has a history of high blood pressure (which she was diagnosed with when I was diagnosed with UC). My GI said it could just be that I happen to have a higher resting heart rate, but she wants me to see an Internist. She said they may put me on a low dose beta blocker.
My question is if anyone else has dealt with tachycardia because of UC?
