Hi Dan! Thank you for your post. I did call 911 and had to go to a hospital that is not my usual hospital for emergencies. They said my EKG was fine. This is the second intense episode in 6 weeks. Was your EKG ok? Did they do further testing? My PCP wants to give me meds to lower heart rate and lower BP only when it is taking place. I feel it's covering up the real issue. Thanks again for your feedback. I'm going to get to a cardiologist.

Hello! I'm looking for feedback and any information on anyone who has episodes of excelled heart rate 160 + with increased blood pressure. I have been experiencing this for the past year. It comes without warning. If I try to eat or drink it will happen as well periodically and have lost 18 lbs in 6 weeks. I feel confused, dizzy, nauseated and foggy with a hard time breathing. It can last approx 1 hr. My pulse usually goes back down but blood pressure usually stays up. Feel sick 24 hrs after these flare ups. Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks!

I had a doppler of my celiac artery last week from MALS surgery I had in 2013. The results showed Post Operative changes of patch angioplasty of the proximal celiac artery. It showed good blood flow as well. My other test all showed normal for stomach. I have been having issues for some time after I eat. They are very similar to what I had before surgery. Has anyone encountered this before? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

Good Morning,

I just got home from 6 day hospital stay. I'm having challenging issues as I also have FMD. I have not been feeling well for months. Had surgery in 2013 for MALS, getting worse. They found Intussuscetion and end result was it went away. Still having stomach pain, extended stomach with bloating , dumping when I eat and dehydration. I only have 1 kidney so this is not good. My labs are not all ok either. Lost 6 pounds in the hospital. They told me I did not have hernia but test results show I do. I have a bulge like a softball extending out in upper stomach. My blood sugar dropped to 53 the day I left. Its been hard because I have to get back to work Wed. I just want a better quality of life. Can anyone give me feedback when they say I'm a complicated case and send me home? Thanks so much!

Kari,

Thanks so much for your reply. I hope all is well with you and family. Yes, I'm in the planning stages now. I'm getting FMLA at work. I'm having so many issues with my stomach since my MALS surgery, and no doctors want to do anything. I now have a hernia as well. I'm miserable. I was glad to find you on this site. I will give you more details when I know more regarding my visit to Mayo. Have a blessed evening. 🙂
