Deb M. Posted October 31, 2005 Report Share Posted October 31, 2005 Hi Everyone,I haven't posted in quite a while... I have innappropriate sinus tachycardia and was actually doing better and able to go back to work teaching this September! The docs had finally found a dose of Atenolol which stopped my chest pains/palpitations and made me somewhat functional!However, my chest discomfort has been starting to come back this week and I have a horrible sinus infection, which sent me to the Emergency Room yesterday. The doctor told me not to take a decongestant, since it is a stimulant and will cause my heart to race. ugh! I'm miserable...Anyway...my question is does your tachycardia worsen when you catch a cold/sinus infection/flu?? Even if you are on a beta-blocker??I'm starting to feel more dizzy than I normally am again and when I stand up I can feel my heart beating and the palpitations!! Very frustrating... especially when I have a classroom full of children to teach!!Sorry I'm so long winded. Thanks for reading...Deb M.
