What is your question? You are unable to see a cardiologist? Why is that?

3 days ago · Anti-arrhythmic AFIB drugs and feeling unwell - Multaq in Heart Rhythm Conditions

@sally630 My doctor has me on Holter monitor the past two weeks. Will see what that shows. Probably nothing. I think this medicine is Pro-arrythmic sometimes in me. I also had a weird multiple anxiety attacks in a grocery store two weeks ago. I took out my Kardia Mobile and it showed some inverted waves. Those peaks that are usually pointed up, I had a couple it caught pointed down. Sent that to my doctor. He said he would talk to me about it this week. I've seen those inverted QRS peaks before in some of my Kardia EKG when I have these bad feelings.

For now though my psychiatrist started me on some anxiety medicine to see if that will help me feel better. Then this week going to see about stopping Multaq. But I'm concerned the AFIB may return.

Dec 27, 2018 · Sleep Apnea, UARS. I bend my knees at night for some reason. in Sleep Health

@lisalucier My current sleep doctor is worthless. He just logs into the ResMed portal and downloads my machine logs, and looks at the 30-day or 60-day summary. Since my AHI is low, he just says "You're doing fine". He refuses to focus on 1-2 days of the month, that bother me and cause issues. My sleep doctor hasn't said anything about the knees lifting. His assistant just said that I didn't have Restless Legs during my last sleep study. I've had several sleep studies this year, and every night was a good night. They never can catch me on a bad night, where I have the issues.

One other issue I have during sleep, is with my heart. I lay pretty immobile all night long on my back, and rarely move. Any time I wake up, and then move an arm or leg, or stretch, it makes my heart rate shoot up 100+. Before I was on Multaq and Bystolic, my HR would go to 120+. This is what I think may have caused my AFIB one night. It's bizarre that my HR would go so high, while laying in bed and just moving a bit. Cardiologist has no answers. I did a Tilt Table test and went to Dysautonomia doctor and they didnt find anything wrong.

Dec 26, 2018 · Sleep Apnea, UARS. I bend my knees at night for some reason. in Sleep Health

I am 47yo male, 6'2" 220lbs. I have history of DVT and PE and AFIB. Use a ResMed AirCurve 10 bipap and ResMed Dental appliance to move jaw forward. Even though my AHI is well controlled under 1.

I sometimes raise my knees up in the air like I'm sitting in a chair. They stay like that for hours sometimes. My bipap machine will show no obstructions but raises pressure during this time.

I'm thinking I may still have upper airway resistance, UARS and making heavier effort to breathe. But I can't tell. I started to use a Webcam to record myself. It showed me raising my knees last night. My machine showed it raised pressure. Sometimes I get night sweats when this happens.

Does anyone know why I would raise knees up in air?
Could I have UARS still on bipap therapy?
Or is this medicine related?

I take Multaq, Bystolic and Xarelto. I'm wondering if Multaq is causing me to breathe heavier while laying down. My cardiologist says it is not likely but their is a warning on the label saying to let cardiologist know if you have issues breathing at night laying down.

Dec 25, 2018 · High Heart Rate / Slight fainting type of symptoms in Heart Rhythm Conditions

@hopeful33250 Well the only symptoms that I feel are faster heart rate, and a slight sense that I may pass out, and that something terrible is going to happen. I sometimes get dizzy upon standing when this occurs.

Its Almost like Panic attacks I used to get a long time ago. I haven't been taking anything for Panic Disorder, due to taking Multaq. All SSRI interfere with Multaq.

Ive been taking health logs for two years already, going back and forth between doctors for other stuff. They can't find any answers for me. They keep claiming it's just anxiety. Multiple ECG and Echocardiograms were all normal. I do have AFIB controlled by Multaq and wonder if it has some connection to my afib condition.

Dec 24, 2018 · High Heart Rate / Slight fainting type of symptoms in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I keep having tachycardia episodes. I will be on my recliner watching TV for an hour or so. Then sometimes I feel a "jolt" like someone hits me with adrenaline, and my HR shoots up to high 130+. One night it got to 146bpm and went into Bigeminey. Not sure if this is just "inappropriate sinus tachycardia" or related to my AFIB. I'm on Multaq which should control AFIB.

Dec 20, 2018 · Anti-arrhythmic AFIB drugs and feeling unwell - Multaq in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Short history:
47yo Male, 6'1" 220lbs. Recent EKG's and Echocardiogram = Normal.
Two DVT's/PE's (2015, 2018) due to Factor V Leiden clotting issue.
History of Palpitations and "inappropriate tachycardia".
Gallbladder removed 2018.

I'm on Multaq for a little over a year now. I take Xarelto 20mg, and Bystolic 2.5mg. Ever since I had my AFIB incident and started on Multaq, I have not felt the same. I tire easily. Usually in the evenings, about 1hr30min after I take my evening Multaq dose, I start feeling unwell. It's hard to describe. I have this slight heavy feeling in my chest, sometimes slight burning on my left side of chest. I've told my cardiologist and EP about it, and they don't believe it is the medicine. Although my EP has said I could try stopping Multaq, but my AFIB may return.

I am not sure what is causing this unwell feeling, but it was worse before I had my gallbladder removed. I would get extremely fatigued. I am at the point of going to Mayo Clinic to see if they can figure this out. Is it normal to not feel good when on anti-arrhythmic drugs for AFIB? Or could it be something else going on?

Dec 19, 2018 · Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I was supposed to get a Linq at one time, due to AFIB. But now he just wants me to use my Kardia Mobile ECG device with my phone. The problem is, I get racing heart sometimes in my sleep, and other palpitations and PAC/PVC's and the Kardia device won't pick it up. Because it is not continously recording. I may have to just get a new Apple Watch that detects AFIB and monitors heart rate.

Does the Linq pick up PVC's and other issues?
