Another Heart Update

I went to the cardiologist on Wednesday. I didn't post sooner because I wanted to post about what I was thankful for..... I have so many great people and blessings in my life.... 

Anyways, I saw the cardiologist.... We don't exactly have an answers yet (for sure), but based on my echo and my 24 holter monitor (from August), my heart is in great shape.

I do have some tachycardia, but he says it is not major. He said that it isn't uncommon for women my age to have sinus tachycardia (which I guess is what he thinks it is..... I know nothing about this, so forgive me for sounding stupid).  He also said that my regurgitating valve is not a problem either. He said that the doctor who read my Echo was probably used to reading echos for much older patience..... Apparently at my age, 28, some regurgitation is normal. Also, he seems to think that the irregular heart beats I am having could be normal too..... Basically, He thinks that I may be able to just take a pill and not really have any problems..... There is also a chance that I won't even need to take any meds......

He is putting my in a holter monitor for 1 month to monitor my heart.... I should get that put on next week.... Don't worry I'll take pics :)

Please pray for me..... Heart issues scare me, so I am hoping he is right!!! (nothing major is wrong)
