Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since how long are you having these symptoms?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you on any medications for anything currently?

Customer:

I have been having the symptoms for about 3 years.

Customer:

I take a 20 mg statin and 1 junior asprin

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you had your blood pressure checked during episodes?

Customer:

No not during episodes as they are intermittent, but I did notice on the cross trainer at the gymn this morning HR was 183 against normal of say 115. I thought maybe the machine was wrong!

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you had your ECG done during these episodes?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Any other heart tests?

Customer:

EEG's were not done during the episodes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I mean ECGs for the heart?

Customer:

The Consultant Stroke Physician letter 20.08.13 said "Given the inconclusive EEG and the brief nature of the symptoms no further action need be taken, his blood pressure and cholesterol are excellent, his carotids are clear and he is in sinus rhythm and I do not really need to see him again unless they become more troublesome.

Customer:

But no I do not think I had an ECG.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

With the kind of heart rate that you are mentioning you should have one

Dr. Shahzad MD :

you may require a holter monitor to monitor your heart rate

Dr. Shahzad MD :

or an event monitor

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It could be a heart related problem

Customer:

OK Thanks for this I will take up with my Doctor
