I have had a constant bigeminy heart rhythm, with 40k+ missed beats a day since the end of March. It was diagnosed as being caused from a viral heart infection. The cardiologist did an echocardiogram stress test, prescribe 25mg/day of Metoprolol and said come back in a month. It was a very hard month. Constant missed beats, headaches dizziness and angina. I had to work through all of this discomfort to support my family.
Went back to the cardiologist for the follow up, he said nothing other then to come back in 2 months for another echo-stress test and that I should see my regular doctor for tests for possible non-cardiac causes.
I saw my internist for thyroid, adrenal gland and autoimmune tests. Everything came back normal. I don't understand what I should be asking the doctors to do. Will my heart heal from the damage from infection or is it permanent?
I was a calm and collected 42yro engineer with no health issues other then slight hypertension and 5-10# over weight. Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.
