tulip123, I know exactly what your going through. I feel the same way. When my heart beats fast, I get scared, it takes me days just to feel safe again. I have put my life on hold, it really is depressing. I don’t want to burden my family with it. I also feel isolated, my friends haven’t been through it so they don’t understand. Fear is with me every day since my diagnosis. Keep trying to find a good Dr. Thats what I’m doing, haven’t found one yet but I will.

Hi hope your well. Haven’t written a post for awhile, it’s been a little hectic around here. My son is getting ready to move to China. Im not crazy about the idea, but I’ll have to get over it. He got his new high tech hearing aids and they don’t work as well as the old ones,trying a new pair Thursday, hope they are better. He’s a good kid, made the deans list and got invited into the honor society. I still worry about him . He’s lost alot of his hearing, makes it harder for him in another country, especially China.Hope everything is going well with you.

Good evening. We love the coast, go to Bar Harbor in the summer.Yes same med, I look forward to trying it.I realize that I need to be more informed. I do have an electrophysiologist, he’s great. I would have the procedure done in Bangor, Maine if he does it. Before I met him I considered Boston Mass.my Aunt is a nurse out there and I could stay with her for awhile.Thank you, I hope all goes well for you too.

I also had an ECG, while on the treadmill,thats where it showed up. I recently changed primary care Dr. I felt that I wasn’t getting enough answers to my questions. My cardiologist is excellent,he’s the top one in my Town. I trust him completely. You are fortunate to have a nurse to call to answer your questions. My new Dr. is a woman, she takes the time to answer my questions, if she doesn’t know she finds out. I am feeling better already knowing that she’s taking care of me. My mother had heart disease,triple bypass.a pigs valve and the same male Dr.. I am glad I don’t have to deal with those issues. I live in Maine, its very cold right now about 12 degrees. My friend went to the Mayo Clinic for her surgery, she’s doing well now. You mentioned a beta blocker, I take atenolol ,do you find it makes you tired? I tried flecanide, it didn’t work very well for me. May be switching to metotoprolol soon,Doc said I might not get so tired. Thanks for your postings.I find them informative.

No I’m a student,decided to go back after my older children grew up. Then we adopted ,she’s in fourth grade, thought it was time to go back.I finished my first year. One day I was driving home from school and I felt dizzy, thought my sinuses we’re acting up again.Went to the doctor, he sent me to the hospital.went into Vt on the treadmill,I felt that I was going to faint .Ran several tests, they didn’t find anything wrong with my heart. Had four treadmills this past year, the first three I felt like I was going to faint, the last one I finished with only every third heartbeat missing. Now when I feel faint they told me to tense up my muscles or cough this helps but its still scary.I’m going back in the fall, I really miss it. At first I thought what am I doing here at 50, then I really started to enjoy it. I think I will get a second opinion. Whats cardio convert mean? Did your ablations help at all?

It has quieted down alot since I stopped taking Biaxin, But hasn’t completely gone away. It’s possible I’ve always had it. I had genetic testing to see if I carry a gene that would cause this, that was negative. Dr. told me to stop driving for 6 months,I’m starting to drive again, but it makes me nervous, I have a 9 year old and she always wants to go somewhere like we used to.I’m also on a leave of absence from school this semester. I’ve been pushing for an an ablation, but Doc wants to wait.Last treadmill test was better.There are many drugs that can cause VT, or make it worse if you already have it.
