Hi there, I've recently been told I have paroxysmal tachycardia and I'm 31 weeks pregnant. I've had the symptoms for years but they have become more frequent over the last few years since having my first child. Now I'm expecting my second child. I don't like the symptoms, they worry me and I feel unwell with the anxiety and during the episodes. But my cardio has suggested a beta blocker and I am not very keen on taking medicines generally, let alone long term. I am afraid of the side effects, of reacting badly to it and I have low blood pressure usually so I am unsure about taking something that is typically used to treat high blood pressure. Has anyone found any alternative solutions to managing this sort of diagnosis? And should I be worried about my long term health with this diagnosis? As a young Mum I am so scared for anything to happen to me, and all I want is to be strong for my children and be able to run around after them and not worry about these episodes. I am very confused about what to do. I also wont take anything during my pregnancy in case of risks to my baby, so this would be for after the birth. Thanks for listening.
