Two days ago I had a CT Scan with contrast. Having had a bad reaction once before I was given Benadryl and something else to counteract. Scan went without a hitch. Went to my daughters to sleep off the Benadryl. Fitbit picked up my heart rate at 144bpm while sleeping. A few hours later while driving home it jumped to 155bpm. It stayed high and slow breathing could not make it stop.
Was taken to the ER. BP was high as well. IV and meds were unable to slow heart rate down until finally given cardiac meds and still took over 8 hrs to get resting heart rate below 90bpm. Tests showed troponin levels elevated. Now having to see a cardiologist and on BP meds.
Has anyone else ever had this problem? I just feel like my body fights foreign components and ends up with bad side effects.
