PostSubject: heart symptoms   Wed Jul 18, 2012 12:15 am

I am trying to figure out if my cardiac symptoms are related to IIH. there seems to be a correlation to me. although I am not sure if it is just that both IIH and cardiac symptoms follow poor sleep apnea control, such that they are not causally related to each other but occur together. does anyone else get palpitations or skipped heartbeats? does this seem to get worse when you feel like your intracranial pressure is higher? I also feel like I am having trouble breathing sometimes when I get the cardiac symptoms. when I take prednisone everything goes away.
thanks,
Deb

I think this is something that you would be better getting checked out by your Doctor. This could be put down to a number of things like stress or anxiety, but getting it checked out would be the best advice I could give you.

thanks Heidi;
I have had two cardiac workups since this started 2 yrs ago. which was about 8 months after I "crashed" into the IIH symptoms. so I am being followed by my cardiologist and he says all my tests are normal. I still notice these symptoms and in my experience it behooves me to follow my questions and intuitions about my symptoms because my docs never help me and without my diligence I would still not even have my two main diagnoses because the docs don't have a clue.
I was just wondering if anyone else experiences this. I hope I am not being a pain by constantly posting but I'm so alone with this illness that it really helps me to chat with you all.

PostSubject: YES I get palpitations   Tue Aug 07, 2012 5:03 pm

I was having alot of skipped beats and palpitations when my ICP went up. My neurosurgeon confirmed that when the ICP goes up it can affect the heart muscle and cause this. I had a cardiac work up that was normal except for the atrial irritability. When my pressure goes down the symptoms go away. If you have chest pain that is accompanied by nausea and sweating you need to go to the ER. However, see if the symptoms improve after fluid is removed. Mine did! Smile

excuse me; not the heart muscle but the electrical pathway to the heart gets disrupted that causes irregularity of the rhythm. This occurs from the high ICP.
