My arrhythmia seems to be evolving and I wondered if any of you can shed any light or had any experience of these symptoms.
I am having on occasion having a feeling as though my heart is swelling in my chest then breathing pauses, I gasp for some breath then everything starts up again as though my heart had stopped. It probably goes on for about five or six seconds and is very unnerving. It Seems longer though.
My ectopics, pacs, when they start range between five in a minute to twenty five in a minute and make me cough. These are becoming a way of life this past month. Flecainide eases them for a few hours then they build again.
Lastly I am having bouts of extreme exhaustion which hits out of nowhere any time of day or night which then heralds a nasty faint feeling but I don't pass out just get the blood draining feeling and things start to blacken but then I rcover somewhat.
Had an ecg Thursday awaiting the results. Anyone any experience any of the above especially the first weird feeling I mentioned.
On a good note I had some extensive dental work this morning. No bad reaction to anaesthetic or bleeding (I take rivaoxaban ) and did not stop it for the treatment. Indeed my heart was very calm after I had the anaesthetic.
Have a good weekend all and thanks for responding if you can shed any light on the above.
Be well all,.
