Background: Some where around 20 years ago I was told that I had benign PVC's and was given Metoprolol 25mg twice a day. Eight years ago I had a coronary angiogram done and everything looked good and was told I had good heart function. Recently I started having lightheartedness, low energy and something like a single thump in the center of my chest. I talked to my cardiologist and we decided to do another angiogram. This was done on 11/5/2015. Again everything looked good, heart function was good but this time I sent home with an event monitor to wear for 30 days. I will add that an vascular closure devices was used (MYNX). It appears that the monitor showed a few atrial fibrillation's and a atrial tachycardia, not sure if there was more than one episode. They have me set up to see an Electrophysiologist on Feb. 1st. I like that both my Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist work together and located in the same building. I began taking the drug Eliquis on 12/29/2015 to help prevent a stroke and side effects are minimal. I saw my primary care doctor this week and she recommended that I take a good whole food multivitamin, along with a Garlic and Magnesium supplement. I had just started Flax Seed Oil and was told to continue on it also. One more thing, I will be 75 on January 31, 2015. I have copd which is controlled by an non-steroidal inhaler. I have a few other health issues but none serious that I know of, I am not overweight and I did quit smoking several years ago.
Any comments or suggestions are welcome as I don't know what to expect. I will post updated information as I receive it.
