I have recently been diagnosed with idiopathic Ventricular Tachycardia. I know it is extremely rare, and have yet to find anyone who has dealt with this. I am struggling to find the right drug to help me with this. After the intial occurence with hospitalization, I was put on Flecanide. Since I have a host of other health issues (chronic lyme disease, POTS) and already deal with extreme fatigue, I was not at all able to tolerate the Flecanide. I was also super scared about taking a drug of this type and seriousness, after I read the drug warning I lost it! After only about a week of Flecanide, I switched to Metoprolol. It was instantly more easy to tolerate although it definitely does give me lots of fatigue and some weakness, still, better than Flecanide. I am surprised that I have still been having tons of palpiations on the metoprolol, and two or three incidences of sinus tachycardia, as well as a suspected VT episode today. I am so surpised that I could still have tachycardia when my resting heart rate is now super low, at 55 (because of the BB). I am wondering if it is because my dose is too low, I am on 25 morning and night. I am increasing to 50 mg as of today. I may end up having the ablation, but ofcourse, I am terrified of that as well. I still can't believe all this has happened and I am totally overwhelmed and upset, and anxious like crazy. On another note, has anyone else found that your palpitations are worse in the morning and evening? I would appreciate anyones experience with beta blockers, or ablation, or VT, though i am sure that is rare. Thanks so much.
Hello, we are looking for participants that suffer from heart failure willing to take a 60 minute survey for a Medical marketing research. This research will be for a connected device for heart failure biomarker monitoring in blood. It will be used for prediction of decompensation.We will need your name and primary phone number. Thank you !
I dont know if this fits here but, last night I suffered with palpatations for about an hour and a half, a few nights previous I had a tight band across my chest, I am not feeling that well today, but wondered if anyone here has suffered from similiar things, I see my cardiologist in a weeks time.
