I am new to this site. I have been looking for this type of site and support for some time as tere is little support in my area of the UK. I was diagnosed with Left Bundle Branch 3 years ago quickly followed a few months later with Total Heart Block which resulted in a having a Pacemaker inserted. All went well for a couple of months. Then I started with Palpatations and was diagnosed with AF. I was prescribed Ramapril and Amiadarone but unfortunately the Ramapril resulted in Anaphlactic Shock and the Amiadarone resulted in Hyperactive Thyroid. I was taken off both of the meds. Luckily the Thyroid has now corrected itself. I am now on Olmesartin and Bisoprlol 2.5mg, They tried to increase the Bisoprolol but it brought my blood pressure down too much.I am also on several different strong Painkillers for a damaged back, My middle name is Lucky lol
The AF was quite good for a while but has recently been quite bad. I have today been set up with a 24 hour heart monitor by the hospital. Strange as it may seem to some I am hoping that I have a bad day today and watever is going on shows up on the monitor. I can deal with things if I know what they are its the not knowing why I have been so bad that is worse,
I have coped recently well with all te life changes i have ad over the last 3 years but this latest setback as knocked the stuffing out of me and im not coping quite so well, Reading the comments on this site has beem a great help both with knowing I am not alone, (I get so fed up with the Drs saying I am so young to have this, I am mid 50's by the way.) It has also helped me by giving me questions to ask the Dr's.
I look forward to reading more of your comments
