I was reading another post which I felt that i could relate to.
wraith wrote about having an infection (sinus infection) then afterwards tachy and pvcs etc... started.
When my tachy started I had some wierd viral infection which affected my sinuses/ears quite bad. The tachy began 3 days into the viral infection, I had not thought about that before but it seemed to make sense reading his/her post.
It was posting in response to a posting about GI probs and sinus tachy.
The original post-er asked if damage to the vagal nerve could cause tachy. And the response was "yes, it CAN cause increased heart rate." The vagus nerve as i remember has something to do with one being involved with the laryngeal, esophagal area and the other involved in the heart rate? I may be wrong.
Among many of the wierd and wonderful things that have been happening to me recently, I have had problems with burping which is really embarrassing. But after food or drink I burp lots of times. I get dreadful wind pain in my stomach and sometimes get reflux.
My sinus tachy would get bad when I got up from sitting or if I ate food, I would get PVC/PACs while eating. Could that be nerve related?
I have other nerve probs at the mo which are scary, GP won't give me an MRI but my pupils are now dilated even when it is light and I get lots of spots and lights in front of my eyes. I have nerve pains (like pin ***** sensations), I feel the cold lots, and I can feel the blood rushing round me if I press on an area. Like, if I stand for more than 2 mins I can feel the blood rushing in my feet, so I move and the rushing sensation stops. When I lay down on my side I feel it in my hip. On my back I feel it in my chest, but movement stops the sensation. My neck also twitches.
It's scaring the **** (excuse the language) out of me now and my doctor's practce (I've seen more than one GP) still say I have psychological problems and that they are causing it.
Of course I'm anxious - I don't know what's happening to me!
So my questions are:-
Could nerve/neurological probs cause tachy if the vagus nerve is involved?
Would neurological probs show up in blood tests, especially lymphocytes or electrolytes or something?
Have I damaged myself with all the panic attacks?
