Re: Scared about troponin result
Ive also had episodes of really fast heart rate, episodes of Supra Ventricular Tachycardia (SVT) when my heart suddenly and instantly goes up to 180 - 200+. My cousin gets them, so did Tony Blair!
If they happen really regularly, like every day, the docs can perform an ablation on the abnormal pathway in the heart, and deal with it. Its common, but not fatal or dangerous :-) (Im guessing this is what youve had??)
Ive had cardiac enzyme tests after runs of this and my Troponin levels were slightly raised, like yours, and the doctors said this was down to my racing heart, and not to worry! Ive gone on Bisoprolol now, and the SVTs have stopped.
Relax, your heart has just had the equivalent of a monster gym session, its what its built for. Your troponin levels will go back down to normal, no harm done!
