DUH

Hummmmm I wonder how many years my Doctor had to go to school to come to the conclusion that tachacardia is not a good thing?  He called me at work today and changed my meds to try and bring my Heart Rate under control and at least below 80 when I'm doing nothing but washing dishes in the kitchen, however washing dishes is enough to bring anyones heart rate up. So now once again we wait and see whats next. He did say if my heart rate doesn't come down and get under control soon I might have to take time off work until we get a handle on it. I think his words were something like i am a heart attack waiting for a place to happen. And no Tom I have no clue why my heart rate is so darned high unless that's part of the A-Fib. Right now I'm just gliding along just trying to survive. I know things happen for a reason and I honestly feel I am meant to learn something from this (trying to look on the bright side) but for the life of me I haven't figured out what the hell I'm suppose to learn from this one.

How high has your pulse been? My doctor has been concerned about my pulse. The last 2 times I have been in it has been high. It was 102 then104. She told me to check it every other day. Yesterday it was 108. My chest hurts so bad all the time. I am having to take 4 percocet the last few days. My blood pressure is fine though. I am starting to get a little worried. I am not doing any exercise at all and that is what the hematologist told me to do but now I wonder if me heart is getting weak from not exercising. Your journal made me think.
