Waiting on Echo and Holter Results

I decided I'd head up to the hospital medical records and request the Echocardiogram and Holter results ahead of time. They will be mailing them out to me when they get them, so now I won't have to worry about bugging the cardiologist's office.

Ever since Monday, I have been feeling terrible. I feel like a bus has hit me and I cannot get enough rest. Monday was the day I wore the holter monitor and I beat the hell out of myself to get good readings on the monitor. At this point, I'm not sure why I feel so terrible still. Part of me thinks the strep is coming back. I have a few new red spots on my ankles and the old nodules are starting to hurt again. It is not severe, but this makes me worried.

In unrelated things. I read on a health forum of some woman who had major improvements in her POTS when she took the fat soluble form of B1. I happen to have that in my house ( I tried it a few years ago) and decided to give it another go. I couldn't remember if anything bad had happened to me when I took it, so I just thought I'd see. Sure enough, it took 3 pills (1 a day) and the PVC's are back... I cannot even make this stuff up any more. I do not understand why my body immediately decides that all B vitamins are bad for me. So I will probably stop taking it and move on.
