Hi all, I have recently seen a cardiologist and have a bit more clarity on my arrhythmia. There is no structural heart issue causing the arrhythmia. The cardiologist said a virus or other acute minor damage to the heart muscle has kicked the heart out of rhythm 8 weeks ago. He said he would have expected the arrhythmia to have resolved by now (because there is no lasting damage to the heart muscle and I am well other than the arrhythmia).
He has prescribed betablockers to try to relieve symtpoms and to get the heart back into normal rhythm. If that does not work, or if I choose not to take the betablockers and the arrhythmia persisits for another 6 - 8 weeks, he has told me to come back in for more investigation.
I have heard that betablockers can be more trouble than they are worth - any thoughts or recommendations? The symptoms are yukky, but I can put up with them for another 8 weeks (to see if it resolves on its own in the meantime). Anyone else had exprience with an arrhythmia resolving on its own? If so, how long did it take? Symptoms are still occurring once or twice every day.
