Crohns and heart problems

I have crohns 25 years and have recently had 2 hospital admissions with palpitations and severe chest pain, on imuran 25 years and this is the first time i have had such an experience, cardiologist carried out all tests which proved negative except for one what they called diamond blood test which was showing a count of 1000 which they said was very high but a pulmonary clot was ruled out and they said possibly inflamation, ? anybody with similar experience ? thanks. JD.

My son is seventeen, he started having a high heart rate several weeks ago. He has had all the blood work and EKG and heart monitor, all came back normal. His iron was a little low so he is supplementing that. He hasnt complained of it being high in about a week. We are supposed to be seeing a pediatric cardiologist soon.

I hope you find some answers soon.
