Hello @bangel , I would like to welcome you to the Connect along with the other members and moderators who have done so. I have mitral valve prolapse with heart rhythm issues. My worst symptoms were fast heart rate, or tachycardia, along with PVC's, which feel like skipped beats. Occasionally I would experience Multifocal PVC's which are difficult to describe. All of this was very alarming and extremely depressing. Hospitalization and ER admissions were all too familiar.
I had to rely on my higher power to get me through it. I didn't think it would be possible for my condition to get any better and in my despair I became very aware of that which was truly important in life. I acquiesced putting my life into the hands of that higher power, when I did that I felt peace and calm come over me. That was about 38 years ago. Medications along with some lifestyle changes have improved my condition but I still have many challenging medical issues which are part of my life.
All of my medical conditions have made me a better person for some of the reasons I have mentioned above. It is difficult sometimes because I walk in everyone's shoes to better understand and somehow help share their load.
Tonight I walk in your shoes. The best information I can give your right now is that you must continue to have hope. We should never give up. We are in good hands and have great purpose and opportunity no matter what life throws at us. Continue to do what you can to improve your health and feel good about yourself. Your doctor should be someone you feel comfortable with and should also be encouraging you.
We are here to encourage you. Please keep us posted.
