Hard to say. Did you show your doctor the graphs you showed me?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I havent actually seen a dr
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
We need a rating on the last page by the way

That particular shift could be just from anxiety but overall I can't really comment on the graphs you showed me before other than to say those didn't look like just anxiety

The cardiologist said that my heart rate always goes down in a normal fashion. But inalso know thT on the average night i am restless around 30-40 different time. Would that have anything to do with it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I don't quite understand what that meant with what the cardiologist said?

And if this has been checked out by a cardiologist why are we talking about it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It was checked out by cardiologist 3 years ago. But then i didnt have a problem with it for awhile
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
We can do without the attitude please

Is that a constant measurement and are you asleep when the rate is low?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Mhst be. I wake up
About 730 or 8 oclock. And my pulse is usually 59-67
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
At at what time does it jump up like that?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It just depends
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. The tachycardia lasts too long and is too consistent to be from anxiety.

I still would need to see the Holter monitor strip at the time but it's likely a supraventricular tachycardia.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ita no big deal
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, not exactly true since it puts a strain on the heart and needs treatment either with cardioversion or a beta blocker or a calcium channel blocker
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i think i have Sleep
Apnea. According to my fitbit i am restless over 30 times on a typical night. Could sleep
Apnea cause the tachycardia
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
