I have the same thing! My cardiologist imaged it to be sure it wasn’t a large aneurysm (or abnormal vessel), but it came out fine. Mine IS worse if I have tachycardia, which makes sense (more volume of blood is going through the vessel). If you are concerned, they can do an echo to check it.
I have this, too! Doctors have always commented on it and when my gastroparesis was bad, they chalked it up to being very thin. I’ve since gained nearly 40 pounds and it’s still present.
I’ve had an echocardiogram, which was normal, and also a test to rule out intestinal ischemia.
Dr. Diana — any thoughts as to whether this is just a coincidence or somehow related to EDS/GP/POTS stuff?
