    hi, my name is brend...i have had a heart attack and bypass surgery thought most of my problems were bad enough then to have the heart attack.. one lucky thing for you is the dr found yours in time.
    i have to have lots and lots of rest can't seem to do anything to give my self any energy..
    was glad to see your letter thought i was the only one with hear problems along with cfs and fms...thanks for your letter.

    tell you this on the phone or at the time of the test? Was that the only thing said? Don't think the worst. The doc may have found a condition that can be addressed by meds. I have irregular heart beats, stress test ok, as long as I take my meds its pretty much under control. The cardiologist said the irregular beats were "one of those things" and not to worry. I find it interesting that this developed around the same time some of the fibro symptoms had started (but I was not diagnosed with FM at that time). Try not to fret too much (I know, it's easy to say), and you're right, God is good, and won't give you more than you can handle.

    I have been really having high blood pressure for the past couple of months. I also have had shortness of breath and a full feeling in chest. Have to go back to doc Monday and will tell her to send me to cardiologist. It could be just the fibro in the chest area do not know. But a friend of mine that has it her doc told her that fibro damaged her heart but I have not had a doc to tell me this.

    Wait till you see the doctor again, it could be something that can be treated with meds.

    I have had Fibro for more than 20 years, and my heart is fine. It maybe nothing too serious.

    I don't recall too many people on the board, and I have been here for almost two years with a heart problem that was caused from FM/CFS.

    That sure was a blessing for you to have all your children and grandchildren for Christmas! I know that must have been wonderful for you.

    Take care, and don't worry.

    Shalom, Shirl

    Is common with FMS with or without heart problems. I do the Dr. Cheney breathing exercises to increase oxy to my body. I pray that the docs will have good news for you.

    Love, Mikie
