Sat, Mar 28 11:09am · Pain around pacemaker site in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Sorry to hear! How bad was your afib when diagnosed? Was it all day, everyday? Heart rate? Sounds like they put u on a lot of things quickly and all at the same time. They tried to put me on a blood thinner and I refused! Put me on Metropolol for high blood pressure and afib meds. Stopped taking everything slowly. Blood thinner took 3 days with 2 many side effects. Dont get yourself all anxious since it will make your afib much h worse. Try breathing exercises, meditation. Yoga and walls in the fresh air help a lot

Y p.o ur dose is low but that is reported the #1 worse beta blocker on the market! I did a lot of research and weaned myself off due to my extreme side effects just like yours. I have heard so many similar stories on this site from this drug. Dont take it anymore!!! So happy I stopped taking it!!!

Omg. So many people have the same symptoms I had. I stopped taking it all together.my right foot had a rash on it and I couldn't figure out what it was. I put all kinds of stuff on it thinking maybe it was a fu gus because it was so itchy. My chest was tight all the time
As soon as I weaned myself off during g a week period my rash went away! My chest tightness gone!. That stuff is horrible. My anxiety was through the roof. Now I have to take herbs for my anxiety until I retrain my brain!! Good luck!

I was on slow release metropolol(beta blocker) felt like crap, rtightness in chest and upper body. Short of breath and would jump at a.pin drop. My flight instinct was severely compremised. Short tempered
Now I am back to normal since I weaned myself off!!
I did a lot of research and that beta blocker was # 1 on the list of worst beta blockers available!! Not a doctor but I know when my body is off.

There are specific compounds in beets and radishes for the heart.i just put carrots in because there are no carbs.organic ginger and garlic are also really heart healthy. Keep up the juicing!

Anytime you can reach out. I take a long walk every day and am going to start going g back to the gym next week. Going to a new doctor tomorrow who is also holistic so am hoping she gets me. I won't take any drugs so taking Hawthorne berry everyday 500mg probiotic 1000cfu in the morning and drink a cup of Hibiscus(organic dried flowers).every afternoon
Which keeps my BP in check
.make some fresh juice with raw beets,.organic carrits.and a few radishes every couple days. Yoga and meditation. A lot more work then taking a pill but worth it!!!

I'm with you. That is a ridiculous response
I have always been very active, fit never sick a day in my life, scheduled a spine I ejection for my sciatica, got really nervous and went into afib!!! I have had afib since then on and off.dont take any drugs for it
Second opinion is a great idea

Did not know about Ribose. Looked it up. Makes sense. Thanks
