Im 33 year old male, started getting ectopic beats a few yeas back. Was given bisoprolol low dose but caused 3 episodes of fast heart arrhythmia so i discontinued instantly, ecg showed iRBBB which i think may have had something to do with it now im left with the same ectopics as befor but new occasional episodes where they come very frequent(2-3 per min) and feel like they are triggered by something ie cold weather, laying down in bed ,bad stomach issues ect, episodes last few hours aprox. im wondering if anybody else has had similar issues? i also notice that when i go from standing to sitting my heart usually throws out a few ectopics(PVCS) also heart feels like its struggling to beat(pounds hard) with that position change which makes me wonder if its something to do with heart rate, ie going from faster heart rate(standing) to slower heart rate(sitting) or maybe blood pressure? ive had echo, stress test, ecg, holter ect and came back clear but these was before the new symptoms caused by the beta blockers. hospital and doctors have no interest in trying to capture the new symptoms which has led me to put in a complaint to the nhs which i really didn't want to do but i know that im being shrugged of im learning to cope with stress anxiety ect and dealing with ectopics but would love to know if anybody else has had similar symptoms exp, ect. Any feedback greatly appreciated
Also few other bits of info, been told by cardio - postural hypo tension and sinus tachy, was told ectopics are mainly pvcs.
Symptoms now(after beta blocker) pounding heart comes and goes, low heart rate in the evening(50s) hi heart rate in the mornings 120+(standing) episodes of more frequent ectopics(occurs once a week aprox, last for a few hours then goes, possibly triggered?
dizziness on and off and sharp stabbing chest pains(although i suspect abdominal issues for this, wind bloating ect), strong buzzing sensation in chest.
cant help but think my vagus nerve is involved in all this somehow.
