    Just had a test that found i had this problem. Anyone know anything about it?
    I'm heading to the cardiologist early April to see whats going on.
    Apparently the right ventricle of my heart doesn't function all that well, could be what my fatigue is about.

    a RBBB can be normal for some people, Cardiologist will hopefully do more tests etc, maybe a stress test to see if any arrythmia's occurr when under stress. Basically its a delay in conduction through the heart and like i mentioned can be normal but definately get it checked out. Do u think u have other symptoms from it? Any periods where it feels like your heart skips a beat or speeds up for no reason. There is also a caution for people taking tricyclic antidepressants with arrythmias as they have the potential to worsen these or maybe just being on a tricyclic could cause arrythmias??

    cheers!!!

    hm yeah bro, i do get numbness on my right side. I think the effexor seems to make it worse. I dont know whether i'd be more pissed if it was nothing or if it actually was the problem.
