After an abnormal nuclear test, I was in the
ER for tachycardia and chest pain. the
y did an angiogram
, which came back normal. Sometime afterward, my internal medicine dr. at the
time thought to measure iron
, not just CBC. Found out I was anemic. He told of a link 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.
