My doctor ran an EKG and confirmed that my heart was running at high speed for no reason. My heart rate was 143 bpm while I was lying on a table. That's my normal workout target.
So it' looks like I have A-Fib. Atrial Fibrillation. My doctor said it was a manageable condition, and not caused by any of my other health factors. I'm doing some reading about it right now. I'm not really sure what to think about having a heart condition, I kind of like being active...
I've been kind of faking good health by achieving close to normal blood sugar, but I can't fake this one. My heart is cranking.
Anyway, I'm headed to the hospital for a 24 hour stay. A cardiologist will do some further tests and try to sort out a medication to slow down my heart to normal speed. I'm all for that.
I'll bring my laptop just in case I have time to waste.
