Suggest treatment for tachycardia and acid reflux disease
All my results for the heart were fine except I have a little fast heart rate.
I am also due for an endoscopy and colonoscopy next week
possible ACTH SECRETING TUMOUR, ( pancoast)..explained
Thanks for the query to HCM ,
Well considering that you have isolated tachycardia and acid reflux disease with usg heart and keg ruling out any heart ailment, then this can be an anxiety disorder associated with acid reflux disease or could be an extra adrenal ACTH SECRETING TUMOUR ( like pan coast tumour) which can cause persistent tachycardia.
A CT SCAN CHEST AND ADRENALS would be able to clear the doubt. however acid reflux disease may be secondary to this primary manifestation.
I suggest get ACTH LEVELS done and if high an adrenal or extra adrenal source should be looked at.
however in the meantime xanax and zantac may be continued for symptomatic relief.
Please discuss the option with your physician before undertaking an endoscopy or colonoscopy.
Thanks for the follow up.
I suggest serum ACTH levels first along with an MRI whole body in next few days to look for any evidence of a possible pancoast tumour. If the reports are negative then you may plan to undergo the interventional studies. You may speak to your gastro and gp ,discussing the options availabke and go ahead accordingly.
