I am sorry you are having such trouble. Can you ask the doctor if he spotted an ectopic beat at least, a pac or pvc? The feeling sounds like it could be something akin to that but if not, if you are pressing the button and feeling symptoms but nothing shows up I wonder if it isn't heart related but nerve or muscle related. I haven't a clue what it could be but I would press the doctor about whether or not the recorder is picking up pacs or pvcs. My pvcs can feel like a pinching and then my heart can ache for a good 10 minutes afterwards. The pinching though is only for the length of a beat. I would suspect you have had an echo done and had your valves checked? Have you had a cardiac mri? Well I do hope you are able to get to the bottom of this. Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
thank you Michelle for getting back to me..the heart rhythm specialist who implanted the loop is suggesting I see my heart specialist again...for further testing..I was diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia from the heart specialist and he sent me to the heart rhythm specialist..So it is a back and forth thing now...I will ask about the Pvc's and the Pac. Never heard of them. The Dr's I have are not ones for explaining things to me.. and i dont know the questions to ask...I have a heart cath..all the tests nuclear stress test..Is it possible to have an Mri with this implant? I think I have had one.I have had so many tests I cant remember. The reason these heart Dr's got involved is I had a few mini strokes and extreme fluid in my right leg so much that it feels like it will explode..major pitting..my general practioner made an appt for me with the heart specialist thinking it might be heart related. And here I am today still major fluid which the heart dr's don't seem to want to address. I will see what they say.
I am on a water pill and potassium.. and a beta blocker..atenolol .I try and drink a lot of water like they told me to.. but i still dont pee a lot. I have had the neck artery test and a sonogram of my heart and legs while I was in the hospital after my mini strokes.They said everything was fine.. I will ask to get my reports tho. Since we will be traveling more now since they cant find anything wrong.and my Loop recorder will still go to my Dr.s I am assuming.
I should have them if I should have to go into the hospital while on the road. We are fulltime Rv'ers and travel around the US but have been staying in this area of Az for my DR's..
