Ok, I'm going to make it short but informative.
I am 25 y/o female, student nurse, no previous history of cardiac problems. My history includes malignant melanoma and asthma. I am on no asthma meds except my rescue inhaler (albuterol) and haven't used it for over 2 months.
Last night I was in the ER for sinus tachycardia, rate oscillating between 150-180 (went as high as 192 at one point). Was given Inderal, Adenosine, and Ativan (not in that order). Had ekg done, normal ekg with sinus tach and ST elevation. Of course I'm supposed to follow up with a cardiologist for a holter monitor, echocardiogram, and stress test.
Any insight into this? I'm not on any stimulants (had a soda for breakfast yesterday, this didn't start til about 7 pm), I'm under stress but not unusual amounts of stress.... what does the ST elevation indicate? I'd appreciate any info.
(who is extremely tired today.... I felt like I ran a bazillion marathons yesterday)
