After an abnormal nuclear test, I was in
the ER for tachycardia and chest pain
. They did an angiogram
, which came back normal. Sometime afterward, my in
e dr. at the time thought to measure iron, not just CBC. Found out I was anemic. He told of a lin
k between iron deficiency and tachycardia.
Nowadays, I'm not anemic, and I still have the orthostatic tachycardia, but the pulse doesn't tend to get quite as high as it did when I was anemic.
