I am waiting for an ablation for an irregular heartbeat which is recorded when I monitor my Blood pressure. It shows itself in my being breathless when I try to exert my self. I cope by taking life slower and am very successful. My heart rate is at 80-100bpm but does not go over. I had a CV last month which put me in NSR for 5 days then went irregular again, and I hope the ablation will cure (fingers crossed). I can sometimes feel the irregularity but don`t worry as I know it will go away. I used to take Digoxin after a cardiologist recommended it to control my HR but I did not go back to this after the CV as I wanted to see if I could manage. After an initial wobble it has now settled. I am less breathless since stopping this so I am hoping to continue to my ablation. I hope that his will help anyone who worries as I am lucky that I don`t worry, whatever happens happens, it is out of my control and is better when relaxed.
