I've never had CAD, or an MI. My doctors think this was caused by some kind of post viral syndrome.



It's really difficult for me as I also have asthma with very reactive airways, when I start to have trouble breathing like I did last night, there is so much strain on my heart. I just nebulised and breathed o2 until I felt better last night - I probably should have called my doctor and gone to the hospital.



My resting heart rate at the moment is 145 and the beat is very irregular.



I'm only 49.
