Fast heart rate with swollen wrist joint may be due to reduced cardiac output. So you should consult cardiologist for early diagnosis of your heart issue and have proper treatment.

Do echo cardiogram for better understanding of your heart situation. Also, don't take it easy because its consequences lead to low oxygen and fatigue.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

My 15yr old son had nerve damage in his left arm at birth. On 3/22/10, he received a T-Dap vaccine in that arm & 8 minutes later went totally unconscience. Since then, he experiences a racing heart, with some arrythmia, stomach & headaches, cold hands/feet, hot flashes & random pain throughout his body. He has been to a neurologist, a pediatric cardiologist, & an electrophysiologist & no one can figure out what s wrong with him. He s had numberous blood tests done as well. Thyroid, adrenal, & all basic numbers check out okay. PLEASE HELP!
