Hi all, I have had a bit of a crazy Saturday morning. I posted about a week ago about pains in my back, wondering if they were related to my kidneys. Went to doctors on Monday, they did a urien test and found blood and white blood cells, diagnosed a UTI and sent me on my way with antibiotics. The pains never fully went but I had started to feel better until this morning when I woke up with pains shooting down my back. The doctor said to come back if this happened, so I did and they took my heart rate and blood pressure. Both were high, with my resting heart rate at 130bpm. My urine test came back clear, but the doctor said that the sticks weren't always 100% reliable so it has been sent for further tests and I have been given more antibiotics to clear up any residual infection. Concerned about my heart rate, they did a heart tracing then gave me a strong painkiller. I then had to wait half an hour to see if it had gone down. When it got re-tested, it was 130bpm again, despite having just sat for half an hour reading a magazine. I have to go back tomorrow for another check. They think it is my body's response to the back pain but aren't 100% sure. I'm not on here for a diagnosis, just a bit of support and would be interested to hear if anyone else had ever experienced a crazy heart rate like this. I have no diagnosed heart problems so it's all a bit surprising! Thanks for reading.
