I FOUND OUT I HAD WPW ALMOST 20 years ago.I've had a few ablations done. AFTER THE LAST ONE a few years back, they were pretty "sure" that was going to take care of it. anyway, it's back again. I'm getting a lot of skipped beats and instances where it feels like my heart rates about to sky rocket. I CAN DEAL WITH THOSE SYMPTOMS. THIS TIME I FEEL EXHAUSTED ALL THE TIME. is that normal? I DON't remember feeling like this previously. no matter how much sleep i'm getting, I JUST FEEL RUNDOWN AND TIRED.

p.s. i'm not sure why this aternated between capital and lower case letters, so i apologize.

    Hello Ryan66,

    I had a WPW ablation 27 years ago. I was fine up until last summer when I started having skipped beats. I returned to a cardiologist and a halter monitor indicated tachycardia even when at rest and I was put on a low dose of beta-blocker.

    Up until last week, everything was fine but now, I've had two tachycardia episodes which scarily reminded me of WPW episodes from before the surgery. I have my cardiologist appointment tomorrow morning, but I get what you are saying. I've never felt this tired after and post episodes.

    Could it be because we are older?

    Have you been to see your cardiologist?
