Does anyone know where I can get more info about arrhythmias? My heartrate and EKGs are consistantly screwed up....bradychardia, tachycardia, and "sinus arrhythmia" (whatever the heck that means?!) I also have a longstanding history of PVCs. My doc is NOT very helpful in explaining things to me (I'm working on finding a new one), but in the meantime, I'm trying to learn to understand my own EKG's....anyone have any info, or websites that are EASY to understand? I get monitored about every 2-3 weeks, with labs (which I have taught myself to understand), BP checks (also very problematic for me....does anyone know if there's a significance of relationship between the type of arrythmia and BP?), and EKGs...
ANY info is helpful.

Even when it doesn't look like it, I am trying, and I'm doing my best in the moment.
