I ve been on a rocky road this year but feel I am getting on top of it. I had bypas in October 2013 after heart attack recovered really well Bu February 2015 started with arrhythmia which in July 2015 was revealed to be sick sinus syndrome caused by bradycardia and tachycardia so had pacemaker implanted sept 2015. And since then seem to have had slow recovery and episodes of af as pacemaker only deals with slow heartbeat. I ended up seeing ep in November who greatly improved my situation by turning pacemaker down so only kicks in if heart rate drops below 50 he also reduced my beta blocker Nebbiolo to 5mg however when I went to see him in Feb he reduced it again to 2.5 as I still felt I had not got my energy back .
This was all well for a week when I went into af coincidently I had nurse appointment at go that morning and I took my bp onmachine in waiting room my hr was 145 then 138 and on final reading 82 the nurse did egg and it was 138 we discussed this and I said ep said I did not need to go to hospital unless in af for 48 hours so I went home and went back to normal 5 hours later I did take another 2.5 of Nebivol the worrying part is my gp rang that night said I have just discovered your hr was 145 this morning you must go straight to hospital I explained I was ok back in nsr but this has left me very confused just what to do next time anyone else who has similar problems my thoughts were I am learning to live with this condition .
Also I have had residual muscle pain mainly on left side put down to muscle pain on and off since bypass but more on than off since pacemaker implant but strangely this disappeared the week I was only on 2.5 beta blocker anyone any idea on this puzzle.
