Hello, my first post here, normally from the lyme forum. Doing my homework before more testing/appointments.
I've goggled RBBB in the Healing Well search, not a whole lot here. RBBB showed up on a random EKG. ECCO will be soon (the video thing of your heart I think).
I'm 50, look to be in great shape, was very athletic, but my bodies been through a lot from many years of lyme disease. Treated that and currently fixing my "busted body" LOL. I had many dizzy spells (sudden vertigo) 20 years ago - though it was lyme, might be this RBBB. Lyme is very mysterious, it can do many things so I dont know if this is damage from lyme (the tick infection) or just on its own. I read RBBB can be cause by infections. I also had periods of heart palpitations (fast fluttering for no reason)- this seems to be gone. I still have fatigue after lyme treatment - can RBBB cause this?
I've goggled it and it sounds worse than what I read about. Whatever the cause, I need to learn. I dont totally understand RBBB, I need basic "layman" terms.
1)Any blockage in the heart sounds bad, so how is this not a big deal?
2)Is it an electrical blockage that prevents that part of the heart muscle from opening/close correctly?
3)I still have fatigue after lyme treatment - can RBBB cause this?
4)Can RBBB cause muscle fatigue and tightness?
Area around heart feels good. My body muscle tension is more on left side of body - upper arm , shoulder, leg, hip - can be from many things, wonder if its related to RBBB.? I figured it was the lyme damage, no way to be sure.
