Re: after some help for my wife

Read your post again, another couple of comments. I once felt funny in a run and asked for a stress test. As a runner I insisted it be done on a treadmill, not a bike so it was done at Murdoch SJOG. When I got there the woman took me up to some pathetic heart rate and then stopped so I got stuck into her! I explained I was a runner and had these symptoms when running so I needed a decent stress test, at my normal running herat rates and above. After a few odd looks I got what I wanted. She did the proper one where they lift the incline every 1-2 mins and keep going till you see stars. Got my HR up to 197 I think it was. So that was fine - just stick out for what you want.

I went and saw one Perth cardiologist with Mum (for her). He was totally useless I wonder if it was the same one. :_: Mum was blacking out from low BP - he didn't seem to think it was an issue. Even though I'd taken the trouble to monitor Mum's BP through the day for several days and present him with the data!

Another thought, I have recently seen Carmel Goodman at the Superdrome for my back issues. She was good - she's a sports med doc and exercise physiologist. I had previously seen two docs and got no where.

BTW - isn't it ironic two Perth people discussing stuff on a US website - oh the wonders of the net!

Re: after some help for my wife

Thanks for the help. We have found another cardiolagist at St John of God who seems very keen on getting to the bottom of things. She is on betablockers which are helping but still doing tests to find the route cause.

Re: after some help for my wife

Dave was her Thyroid ever tested? Especially after morning workout - lets say afternoon test?

My mother has the exact same symptoms and she corrected it with thyroid medication. After 20 years she no longer has a thyroid but when she overexerts herself those same symptoms appear. Its worth asking your Doctor if you haven't.

Re: after some help for my wife

cheers Doug, I think they tested that but will double check.
Unfirtunately she has had to come off the betablockers as although they helped the palpatations the side effects got worse and worse and she was suffering chronic nausea and dizzyness.
Back to the drawing board, they have collected her urine for 24hrs and she is waiting for a tilt table test which sounds positively medievil
