Not as high as it did before my ablation (last June) but around 130bpm. I spoke to my GP at length on Monday who advised me to take Metoprolol alongside my Amiodarone and Warfarin. Yesterday, with it still racing, I rang to speak to my GP to be told he was at a meeting. A nurse called me back and said to go for an ECG, when she saw it she called my GP out of the meeting and came back to say he would call me that afternoon. He did and asked how my pulse was and said he would fax the ECG to my cardiologist (v good at responding) and also EP (rarely gets back to my doc). Today, not having heard anything, I'm in the same situation with my pulse still around the 130 mark. How long can I go on with this heart rate and should I take myself off to A+E?
