I had an ablation in early November. The procedure went smoothly and, as advised by the specialist, I started tapering off my beta blocker tablets (Sotalol) coming off them completely a couple of days ago. Everything seemed to be going smoothly and I felt really well.
However, about a week ago I was relaxing at home when my heart suddenly started racing/pounding as if I'd been running. The episode lasted about twenty minutes but, strangely, didn't feel the same as the AF symptoms I used to experience.
This morning I've been woken up with exactly the same symptoms only this time they seem to be continuing much longer. My resting pulse rate is currently 89 ( normally around 65) - not as fast as I used to experience but still higher than expected. Is this unusual? Have any other ablation patients experienced this kind of thing?
