When my heart is at rest, and not being a tachycardic-pain in the butt, it seems to beat with a lot of force when it should be relaxing.
When it's just at rest, it will beat so strong for no reason.
The doctors called this Hyperdynamic Circulation.
I also have trouble exercising, my heart is extremely erratic when I attempt to exercise and I also can't get a breath doing something as simple as walking up a couple of stairs.
Is this common with Lyme, babs / bart? Does anyone know the reason why our body reacts this way?
I have had a full heart work up. All is fine, stress test etc all good. I have MVP with mild regurg, and the doc said my left atrium was slightly enlarged indicating infection or virus etc....anyone have this? Does it resolve?
I appreciate your responses ^___^
Much love and well wishes.

- Yes, all that you describe is very common with lyme/TBD (tick-borne disease). Much is explained in the thread below but a good LL MD is the most important key.
A "full heart workup" with a doctor who is not lyme literate is not at all a "full heart workup" for a lyme patient who needs a lyme literate MD (LLMD), or a LL cardiologist.
Unless they are LL, they don't even know what they don't know about all the ways lyme/TBD changes a body.
Yes, it can get better.
* Treat infection(s) with a LLMD - Be sure all stealth infections have been assessed.
* Support your body with healthful foods, certain key supplements and good self care that includes non-aerobic movement as best you can. All that is included in the thread below.
