Inappropriate sinus tachycardia

Can inappropriate sinus tachycardia be brought on by having severe gastroparesis and chronic fatigue? I was just diagnose with IST and doc thinks it was brought on by my severe illness and he said that evently it will go away once my gastroparesis is under control for long period. I just got my gastroparesis under control now and haven't had any flare up of my gastroparesis since last year,it was so severe that I was nourish with TPN and tube feeding. He think because of the chronic fatigue,being under weight,low blood pressure,and all the meds that I took in the past play a role in this and now my body is trying to get back to normal but having a tough time adjusting so it pulls this curve ball with IST now. I know that IST is not life threating and lots of women get this also but is there a chance that he said it true that it was caused by my severe illness and it will go away? I am finally getting my life back together after battling severe gastroparesis for three years and have the strenght to go back to school,working full time,and now started going to the gym. Is there anything else that I need to know about IST?

Is your IST pretty constant?  Does it race when you get up from your chair or bed, or when you climb stairs?

I have been having CFS symptoms also, some quite severe and my doctors blame anxiety for all of it including the sinus tachy.  I'm on beta blockers, but this evening I had a strange panic attack type thing and my heart rate went up on the beta blockers.  It's so scary.

I get regular ectopic beats, skips/palps too.  

I don't know what gastroparesis is - I do get gastro symptoms like burping after meals and drinks (really big deep burps) and bloating.  I also get reflux from time to time.  I get palps when I eat too.

I have recently been looking into the possibility that I may have MS as my symptoms are quite severe.  

When you say you have chronic fatigue - what symptoms do you get?  Sorry for asking, I was just curious to know.

My chronic fatigue is not that severe now when I had it severe I basically can sleep as soon as I got home from work(around 4pm I would fall asleep and will not get up until the next morning to go to work) or sometimes I will fall asleep driving home from work or fall asleep at work(at my desk)because I was tired all the time,no energy what so ever. I still get tired alot but not fall asleep that early now I will fall asleep around 6 or 7 pm(still early) and will take naps on weekends and days that I do not work,there's days that I have no energy to do anything but I try not to let that happen too much. Gastroparesis is when your stomach muscles don't work properly (for short lazy stomach) you can't digest food and you have nausea and you vomit undigested food. This gastroparesis that I got was caused by a virus that I caught and cause damaged to my intestines and stomach so I don't absorb vitamins well (my intristit factor was affected) so I get monthly B12 shot to help. This is permement disorder that I have to deal with the rest of my life, there is no cure for gastroparesis just trial and error type of treatment right now. I am on botox injection to control my gastroparesis and its the only thing so far that is working for me. I have tried everything under the sun,some work,some work with side effects and some did not work. My IST starts up when I am exercising,walking up and down the stairs,normal walking,and sometimes just resting. I am on beta blockers but my doc is weaning me off them,I just have to use the beta blockers during bad episodes. Starting an excerise routine will help IST and chronic fatigue but knowing when to start and continue is hard,just take it slowly and try to build on time.
