MS and heart rate

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

MS and heart rate

Looks as if MS can impair your body's ability to regulate the heart....dammit! Does that mean I'll have to give up mountaineering? :wink:

heart rate and MS

All MS patients have elevated sympathetic activity, so they prone to have tachycardias.

Don't worry, it rarely leads to serious cardiac complications, just do everything on a slower side.

Kind regards,

I have been diagnosed with PVCs, or pre-ventricular contractions. It feels like a flutter or palpitation, and is most noticable to me after I eat. It diagnosed while I was wearing a 24 hour monitor for a month, because the aggravating thing about it is it would NEVER happen at the doctor's office (sort of reverse white coat syndrome). The cardiologist ordering the test was so unconcerned I never got called in for an office visit. I've had a couple bouts over the years with what I've been told was vasovagal syncope, in which BP would drop like a rock and I'd get real faint after eating. This would happen after getting really hungry, and then packing it in at a restaurant. I would wind up on the restuarant floor and generate unwanted excitement. Thankfully this has only happened twice.

I have no idea if it has anything to do with MS or not. I guess it could. Or it could be a lot of other things.
