In September I began having palpitations, usually in the evening. I was fitted with a halter monitor which I wore for 48 hours. No abnormalities were observed. I began course of 35 session of ECP and have 10 more to go. The palpitations continue and are accompanied frequently by PVCs. Two nights ago, I had a bout of midsternal chest pain, probably angina. My BP was about 140-150/80-90 at the time. There was some mild sweating. This lasted about half an hour. Th next night, while taking my BP with a digital cuff that beeps when the heart beats, I had a 5 second runof pretty fast taachycardia. The pulse had been reading in the mid 70s before this event and was reorded at 111 after the tachycardia. There were abolutely no symptoms at this time.

I havean appointment with my cardiologist on October 14. I will keep those interested posted.
