I have been diagnosed with IST. At first they put me on anxiety medicine and then added propranolol. I gained weight and was so exhausted all the time. I finally stopped the anxiety meds and felt much better. I slowly started tapering off propranolol also. I have read that it is okay to have a faster heart rate. That you can live a healthy normal life and that it is not life threatening. I feel so much better and have energy. I felt numb on the medicine because it blocks your adrenaline. Now...I can actually feel excited and happy again. My heart rate has increased and sometimes just walking and cleaning house it goes up to 126 or 132. When I sit down it goes to 80's. It probably has always did this and i just didnt notice before. Does anyone else suffer from this? I have read that you don't have alot of options while having IST. Either meds or none. I am choosing none. The side affects are horrible. If anyone has any suggestions to help...I would appreciate.
