Hi.For 18months now I have been really ill.
I am 39.
To start with my heart would go really fast 160 ish.... so I was put on beta blockers.
Over the next year I tried Propanolol.Sotalol...Calcium channel blockers to name but a few.
But it didnt matter what dose I was on large or small my heart would still go v.high or very slow down to 30.And they made me extreemly ill.
My vision and balance was off all the time like I was drunk and not in a good way!
Dizziness is mainly always present, and the breathlessness comes and go's.
I became so unwell I had trouble in looking after my children , doing any daily tasks ect....'Waves' would come over me all the time like my heart had just stopped....Or a huge sinking feeling in my chest sometimes an ice block feeling too....Like when you go down in a lift.
This would happen in bed or during the day constantly.
I would also get a cold tounge or roof of my mouth alot of the time.
I went to 3 cardios who told me nothing was wrong.
Obviously my beta blockers were masking my symptoms as I came off them all Feb this year.
This is when the missed beats started to happen.
I have just had my latest 24hr moniter on from my gp.. which revelead my heart paused 230 times during the 24hrs.As well as showing Vent and at ectopics .
Oh my to say I am scared is an understatment.
My longest pause was 2.2seconds
Its where it flatlines where no electrical impulse are seen...then back to sinus rythum.
I am feeling poorly most of the time.
Is any one else like this??
I am waiting yet again to get a new cardio in Aug....but I am so worried.
