Just a quick note to say hi! an thanku
I would still love to get the genetic test done to rule out lqt 3, but noone seems to think I need it and the insurance didnt seem like they would cover it when I looked into it. Hopefully all the doctors are right and I don't have this!
My QTcs have been 447, 434, 428, 399, and 388. Then the 1st EP said he got a manually calculated value of 465. Then he put 499 on the genetic test. Dr. Rosero looked at all the EKGs and said his highest number was 440. So it is all a little confusing, but I should try and trust Dr. Rosero who is the long QT specialist. Also, he said even if I did have one 465 that was ok. The 499 we are assuming was done just so I could get the genetic test to ease my anxiety, which we are no longer doing. My QTc decreased with the stress test to 376. That is why I am terrified of having LQT3, which seems to be the worst kind. However, there is nothing else I can do. The expert cleared me so all I can do is say a little prayer when I go to bed I guess.
I was seeing an EP, who got one different value than Dr. Rosero. I am taking Cymbalta for anxiety. I thought that your QTc reading was 460 if I remember correctly. Dr. Rosero and my first EP both said that is a value not to worry about. I would love to get the genetic testing done still just to be sure, but Dr. Rosero does not think I need it and my husband said we are not doing it because it would just increase my anxiety. I keep focusing on the small details based on the reading I have done and keep thinking what if everyone is wrong and I do have it? I am certainly not ready to just pass away in my sleep which is what I am convinced will happen..... it is so terrible that an arrythmia can actually me triggered my sleep in some cases. Hang in there.
I did go to see Dr. Rosero in Rochester. He looked at all my tests and could find no indication of long qt. He measured my highest QTc at .44. He does not no where my other Dr. got the .465 from, but says even if I run between .38 and .465 that is fine. He also believes the other EP put .499 on the genetic test just so I could get it done. I still have a lot of anxiety and am scared of sleeping as I am convinced one day that I will never wake up. My anxiety brain does the "what if" even though I have been cleared by one of the best. I forgot to tell Dr. Rosero about my nightime "panic attacks" and in still wonder if that is a LQT3 symptom, although I try to rationalize and say it was just nocturnal panic attacks from starting a new med. We are right now not going through with the genetics.
Hi Carrisa, Well that is good news from the cardiologist. Are you going to stop the SSRIs to see if the long QT resolves itself? Until then I woud watch taking any cold or allergy meds. But from what I have read level 1 heart block isn't much to worry about so you appear to be in overall good shape. : ) Well thanks for keeping me updated. I like to hear back from everyone. Ok, take care and talk to you later.
Hi Carrisa, No problem. I know how scary this can all be and how long it can take to get answers for any health matter. It can be a bit trying. I am interested to know what they all found so please keep me posted. : )
Thank you! :) Can't wait until Wed. for my U/S so I can stop worrying so much.

Happy Halloween! My appointment went well. they gave me a device that I can record my heart rate on for 30 sec its like a mini ekg. I go in for an echo of my heart on the 10th of nov. He says he doesnt think anything is wrong but wants to prove it. Thanx for asking. I've been sooo busy lately havent been online much. Hope you have a safe and fun Halloween!!!
Thanx!! I called my dr. today he wants me to see a cardiologist. I see him on the 27th!
Thanks!!! It was pretty funny!
Welcome to Ask Peekawho. Ummm...I don't have anything witty to add, but I'm glad you're here!
You are too sweet. Thanks for even remembering me! :) Apparently it was LEEP but he calls it cone biopsy (I am not seeing that doctor anymore) I got in to one of the good offices here that is OBGYN/Infertility so after meeting with the CRNP I will for sure need help getting pregnant! Also, I healed great from the LEEP. She said that the doctor is a bonehead but you can't deny his surgical skills! So I started my first round of Provera/Clomid to induce AF after 126 days and I am pretty sure I actually ovulated. I am on CD31 and will go in for blood work on Thursday to either confirm a pregnancy or start my next Provera/Clomid cycle! :) Seriously, thanks for asking about me. It really means a lot.
Thank you! The mastetis is clearing up now so I'm just waiting for my milk supply to pick back up. It really dropped off for a few days there. We're supplementing with about one bottle of formula a day until it gets back to where it needs to be to keep her full.
Thank you! I am so thrilled with my new little addition! He is doing great! My milk came in last night and he is nursing great. It's going much better than it did with Jeremiah.
thank you so much for your note it means alot to me. Take care. Marina.
