New tachy-brady diagnosis
I don't really know what to say, I feel a bit overwhelemed. I was just diagnosed with tach-brady syndrome which was a shock. I've had heart palpatations since my mid teens, I'm 37 now. I just mentioned the palpitations to my pcp because I've lost a lot of weight and have been feeling anxious lately. The weight loss was intentional, I was 460 pounds now to 260. I wore an event monitor for a month but the cardiologists office called after a week telling me I needed to see an EP. I did that yesterday. On the whole it went well, he said it needed to be watched but for now no changes needed to be made and he said I need an echo to make sure he's not missing something. I physically feel good but I'm really scared. I've had major depression and GAD for all of my adult life but this is the first physical ailment. I don't even have a pacemaker yet, I guess I'm just looking for shared expirence. I've had an increase in panic attacks over the last five months and now I'm wondering if what I thought was panic is actually related to my arrhythmia.
