From this study (2 weeks ago):
Since my treatment with cisplatin I have had irregular EKGs readings, spells of pounding heart rate and medical providers ask me if I was told that I have a murmur. Never had this before. I also have significant nerve in my face, neck, inner and outer ear and side of my head on the right side where I had the tumor and lymph nodes removed. Also, 34 bouts of radiation. I thought the spells had died down but seem to be increasing in recent days. Treatment was 10/12-12/12. A cardiologist indicated there is something there but not serious a year ago. I was awaken by the pounding sound in my ears last night. I m headed back to the cardiologist again. I am taking medications for pain which may be aggregating the situation. Confusing situation.
