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.
im a 26 year old women that have been diagnosed with (ist) or thats what they think i have i go c my cardiologist in a week. i just wanted to know what r the symptoms some of u have right before the fast heart rate begans. mine start off a dizziness then my ears start to feel like it cloged up then it becomes hard for me to breath then the fast heart rate strartes. ill put my head down and take slow deep breathes and it goes away after that ,but sometimes i'm afraid that it wont slow down.i have three young children and i don't want to panic and scare them but when u feel that way its kind of hard not to .if there is anyone out there with this condition out there could u let me know how your symptoms starts i feel so alone with this condition i don't know what to please help
There are it seems many of us with these conditions but I don't know anyone in person. And even if I did I don't think this would be same for everyone ie we are all diffident and have different symptoms. I went to cardio since 2 years back but I had symptoms since primary school. In high school if became a bit more obvious but I never had too much issues with this until my early thirties. I am 40 and it really disabled me for several years. My cardio also blames it on anxiety as his other patients with ist aren't this badly affected but everyone is different. I've got no idea what to do as I have lost several jobs through this. Initially I still was able to work but since a few years back when I was finally diagnosed it got so terrible that I just cant do much - come home and straight to bed at about 6 pm. Some days I am so tired just like the person above that I fell asleep at work or lectures. It just is impossible to function with this problem but my cardio seems to say that it is my anxiety. I do have anxiety but it doesn't make me so slow sleepy and exhausted. So can't see how the anxiety can be the main issue. This is an old thread but was wondering if you got any better (those posted above)? I haven't gotten better much but it is also a bit unpredictable some weeks are not too bad but most times I m exhausted. Even though I don't believe that my cardio is correct ie that anxiety is my
main issue I sometimes think it too as this affects my thinking and I can't focus and sustain my attention on work or study. I have tried antidepressants but nothing ever changed this even a little bit. So I don't think I m depressed. One psychiatrist I went to said may be I should try electroconvulsive therapy as it MAY BE atypical depression. It however can damage my memory. Why on earth try something like this for something that MAY be I would prefer a more professional opinion.
