Hi, i am not only new to this site, but to any type of community forum. I found it whilst google-searching my condition. After 4 days of palpitations I went into A&E with 171bpm which went up to 300bpm every few minutes for 3 and a half hours, treated with adenosine, then beta-blockers then flecanaide intravenously. I had some instant seizures throughout this.
So i am now on medication awaiting a catheter ablation and have a ton of questions! My first question is one the doctor couldn't answer - I feel totally exhausted, sick, dizzy, faint, as if i have vertigo and am worse when vertical, (even sitting), on the computer or mobile screen, bending forward and even talking - is this typical? Should I rest or try to push to do more? I tried my pilates class and was ok if I lay on my back or side, not on my front, and I did my one afternoon a week as voluntary school librarian (this totally exhausted me but the children did my heart good as always).
I suffer chronic pain and am generally fatigued, but this is fatigue at a new level. I am taking flecanaide, apixaban and bisoprolol and was told side effects are probably from the flecanaide and that none of the tablets can be reduced without risking the problems of SVP. I'd really appreciate any comments or suggestions as I feel that the only advice of 'stop smoking and don't drink over the recommended daily suggestion' is very little advice. (I have stopped smoking and am uncharacteristically snappy and miserable at my poor partner!) Thanks.
