Palpitations, R. Bundle Block and Metoprolol Effects
I have never joined any group before and came across this one and wanted to join.
I am 63 years old and have had heart palpitations since the age of 5 as I recall.
About 12 years ago a rt bundle block was found also.
I have had the heart monitor reader on a few times and it is said to be stress related.
I was first put on beta blockers with no problems..but stopped for some reason years ago.
Then put on Atenenol with no problems then a new doctor switched me 2 years to metoprolol succinate
@ 50 mg per day. Worked ok, but I started having things happen to me. I quit doing my daily run
because I was to tired. Up all night. My hair began falling out in huge amounts and my eyes and eye sockets
swelled up for days at a time with reduced swelling now and then. My throat may have gotten a little swollen too.
I told the dr. and he did 2 thyroid tests that where neg.
I have always looked young and healthy for my age, but now I feel my age and look alot worse.
I have decided to go off the Metoprolol 5 days ago..started with half now I on a quarter pill a day.
I don’t want to take any more of these blood pressure pills.
My question is will these heart palpitations kill me? They feel very severe and sometimes my heart just races for
no reason. But I have had them for over 50 years and so far so good I think.
