Lot's of good advice and support, as usual, from the folks on this forum. I would like to especially point out the advice of Sue225, who I believe was offering the same advice I gave in my post. And that is, quite simply, this: If you feel there is "something" going on with your heart, either for the first time or if, like me, something you've learned to live with for 30 years, do not waste any time bringing this to the attention of a cardiologist. Even if your cardiologist told you 5 or 10 years ago it was "nothing to worry about." IF IT HAS CHANGED YOU NEED TO LET YOUR CARDIOLOGIST KNOW! When my palpitations changed after 30+ years, I immediately saw my cardio, which lead to stress tests, Holter and ZIO monitors, medications, a cardiac catheterization, more medications and eventually, just this past March, to a cardiac ablation. I am definitely NOT saying that if you've been diagnosed with palpitations, that MY experience is what you have to look forward to. My doctor made it clear to me that even my 30+ years of palps was NOT the cause of me developing AFIB in my 60's. I realize this is redundant, but my experience taught me that when, OR IF, any cardiac issues you have changes, let your cardiologist know as soon as possible. I want to end this on a really positive note……it has been almost 6 months since my ablation and aside from the first week post surgery, I have had ZERO episodes of AFIB, no palps and no PVC's. For the first time in 30 years and at the age of 68, the only time my heart "goes wonky" is when one of those monstrous spiders runs across my rug! I wish you all the very best and try not to stress…….what "modern" medicine can do these days is nothing short of miraculous.
