I’m not sure if tachycardia is the appropriate dx currently; since the ablations, it has changed to bradycardia, hence, the pacemaker. The tachycardia was just the beginning. I now have shortness of breath, a spiking blood pressure which can descend as quickly as it increases and chest pains. I seemed to become symptomatic from the least bit of activity or sometimes from no activity. Stress test showed a TID ratio of 1.45 and the cath showed absolutely nothing – clean arteries. Just had a lung CT yesterday and scheduled for yet another echo. Previous echos produced normal studies. I’m sure this didn’t clear up anything as to where my post belongs. Believe me, no answers or suggestions after almost 20 years of this. By the way, I’ll be 54 at the end of March.
