I am 45, 4years ago I had a horrible anxiety attack I struggle with daily. December of 2019 I went to ER with Afib had a echocardiogram week later all good no issues till end of March 2020 had another Afib, both episodes I was able to go back in sinus at ER with medication. Last attack doc put me on 25 MG metoprolol twice day been on for 7days I assume take time to adjust and low dose aspirin. Since my last attack I noticed I am very nervous especially in morning. Everyday check heart rate, blood pressure every pain in arms or chest I freak out does not help. Currently all I have for the anxiety is Xanax been worried taking with metoprolol, I was not big fan of lexapro or any other anxiety meds, prior to last attack I was starting to get anxiety under control. Any advice on dealing with both these conditions together will be much appreciated.
A little background about me, I have one ablation under my belt, but I still have mild spells of afib or tachycardia.
I went to the docs office and he recommends a loop recorded to capture those mild spells for a better diagnosis.
Im ok with this but my mom and girlfriend dont like the idea, because they think my symptoms are mild.
Anyone else have a story about how a loop recorder helped them?
Hello. I'm 47 years old and was diagnosed with A-Fib just before Thanksgiving.
I had an ablation Jan 29, and I enjoyed sinus rhythm for 3 days! A few days later, back to the ER.
Last week I had my first cardioversion and got to enjoy a nice, slow sinus rhythm for 2 days. Today marks my 6th day in Afib without a break.
I was taking Toporol 50mg 2x a day, Flecainide 150mg 2x a day, and Eliquis 5mg 2x a day. Now the doctor has stopped my Flecainide and Sunday I start taking 400mg Amiodarone 2x a day.
I've been reading up on Amiodarone, and I have to say I'm scared to start taking it.
Been lurking and reading posts, and just felt the need to vent a little! Thanks
