I am a 25 years old female. I've been dealing with tachycardia for the past two years. I am not sure where to post this so, bear with me.
I had several ecgs done, 24 hours Holter monitoring, and echocardiography which ruled out any heart condition. I am otherwise healthy.
My resting rate is constantly 90-115 bpm. It spikes up to 130-140 during my walks.
Cardiologist prescribed me ivabradine 5mg/2 times a day. I've been taking it for 5 days and heart resting rate has lowered at around 80 bpm on average, and 60 bpm while sleeping, which is good.
However, I feel like stopping it because I started having this feeling of breathlessness, dyspnea, mainly at rest.
Is it possible in any way that I am not used to a lower HR, hence 'needing less hair' hence the dyspnea?
I am used to palpitations and high resting rate so, I feel like I could live with it; question is, can I live with it? If so, should I limit physical activity in any way?
Thanks in advance to anyone who might have a clue.
