Hi to all,

Also says I have Coronary artery calcification and when I looked on my smart watch it also said that I have cardiomyopathy really fast heart πŸ’“ beat when resting and exercising.

  1. It sounds like something you want to discuss with your physician. I have an Apple Watch also and it does take a good ECG that you can show to your doctor when you visit. Of course, they will use machines that are much more accurate to see if anything is, in fact, wrong, but in the meantime we are here to help however we can. Let us know how it goes, keep on keepin on, DPM

    1. there is a link to neurofibrosis and RA. We all be checked because it a serious medical condition.

  2. I am waiting for A phone call to let me know when I am going for Ecg s at doctors and hospital.

    2. Hi . Glad to hear you will be going (hopefully soon) for the Ecg. In case you haven't seen it, I want to share with you this article on RA and lung conditions: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/symptoms/lung-diseases-and-conditions. On top of everything you are already doing, a rheumatologist may be able to speak more on the inflammation in the lungs. Wishing you the best. Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
