My daughter(6 yr old) has had Lyme disease since birth and has been complaining of heart pain, but tests show its normal. What am I to do now?

?: I am confused by your question in 3 ways: first, according to the most up to date research, there is no association supporting a link between lyme disease and preg, adverse fetal outcomes or cardiac malformations.

Not always a rash: The classic bullseye rash is not necessary to diagnoses lyme's.

Am i limited to go into the sauna / hot tab if I have mobitz 1 second degree heart block?

Mobitz 1: Mobitz 1 type of 2nd degree heart block is a rather mild condition in which an occasional heart beat is blocked. With higher degrees of 2nd degree heart block, the heart rate is quite slow and i feel excessively hot temperatures may be harmful as blood pressure falls. I don't feel that exposure to hot temperatures would affect mobitz 1 2nd degree heart block as the heart rate is not unusually slow. ...Read more

Whats the different between typical and atypical wencabech second degree heart block? If I have both do I need a pacemaker?

Whats the different between typical and atypical wencabech second degree heart block? If I have both do I need a pacemaker?

Wenckebach block: If you are having symptoms from your a-v block, a pacemaker is recommended (assuming that there is not an underlying, correctable cause of the block.) the difference between typical and atypical is the conduction ratio-how many signals are sent vs. How many signals are received. Typical might be 3 "p" waves to 2 "r" waves; atypical might be 7 "p" waves to 6 "r" waves. ...Read more
