yesterday i went back to cardiologist for the results of this 48 hour monitor... ok someone please explain this to me.. first my heart is beating to fast... very fast.. the bottom valves they say might have a leak and that is causing my top valves to beat faster... i had a stress test done back in february of this year.. did fine.. my blood work came back fine.. nothing wrong with it at all.. so .. why is my heart beating to fast.. during the 48 hours. i had a few episodes where my heart rate was VERYVERY high.. and at that time i was sleeping? i had a echo done.. but the hospital doesnt have any records of it or results.. so i had to get another one at the dr.office.. so.. i am on meds.. lopressor.. at which he raised the dosage.. i will hear in a couple of days about the echo and just see how the leakage is doing..BUT anyone out there tell me what all this means? in the mean time.. im not allowed to over do anything and take it easy and if i have really severe pain go to ER? WHAT am i supposed to be thinking? im 38 yrs old... what does all this mean? HELP..
