I went to my endo last week, and she was worried for my resting heart rate. My average is 105 bpm. I have in the past taken multiple ECGs to test for arrhythmia, and had my heart scanned 2 years ago to see if there were any abnormalities, like leaky values. I've also had a Holter monitoring test for 24 hours done 4 years ago. Everything came back fine, other than my heart rate being too fast.
Now she wants me to do another Holter monitoring test for 24 hours, because I've started coughing regularly (maybe once a week), when I feel my heartbeat in my throat. She says it's the bodies natural way to stabilize the heart rate - that and vomiting, which sometimes makes people faint due to lowering the heart rate too much. If everything comes back "normal" again, she will give me a "mild" drug treatment to lower my heart rate.
Does anyone else have this problem? I'm worried that it could have something to do with my diabetes. I've had type 1 for almost 12 years.
