Could I have CHF?
My heart rate has been consistently high at my dr appts for the last year. Generally it is around 120-130 bpm. About 3 weeks ago it was 139 bpm. My dr mentioned that it could be CHF and said if my heart rate continues to be high he would send me for testing. My blood pressure has mostly been normal. This is a new dr I just started seeing in Dec and right now he has me taking Propanalolol for migraines and the high heart rate. There is a family history of CHF in my family. My paternal grandma and my dad both died from it. One paternal uncle has it also.

As a history for you I am 39, weigh 129 lbs, have Von Willebrands disease, acid reflux disease, have had my gallbladder removed, have hypothyroidism, and chronic migraines (I get a migraine at least once a week, often lasting more than one day). I am also currently being treated for chronic knee pain that I have had over 10yrs. I have had 5 knee surgeries and now have arthritis in both knees. I will be getting rooster comb injections soon. I currently take the following meds:

Gabapentin 1200mg per day
Elavil 20mg per day
Hydrocodone 80mg per day plus 2600 mg tylenol
Protonix 40mg per day
