Quick background I'm 36 (well on Sunday!) I've had what I thought was fast AF for about 4 years. Mine are sudden onset and have mostly been reduced in hospital as vagal techniques haven't worked.
I've seen a specialist EP at Bart's hopsital - he has dishlgnosed svt which degrades into af and he recommended me to ablation.
I had the ablation but it was unsuccessful - my problem is too close to the ab node to nuke.
I've now.been prescribed beta blockers as I haven't tried them yet.
Im struggling a bit on the net lockers as my heart rate is low at resting anyway and my BP is low as well. I feel a bit like a zombie now and I'm close to fainting as I stand up. I'm.obviously going to try these for a week or so and.see if this changes. But I'm not sure a life time of these drugs will make my life much fun!
I'm seeing the specialist in November but I'm really paranoid I'm going to have more episodes.. is there anything I can do I the mean time? Any tips on taking beta blockers to help me? My BP at the docs today was 90/50 and pulse is about 55 at resting. Should I be worried about this?
Also, because I keep feeling faint should I to a tilt table test? I've read about them but I'm not sure what they are for. I just want as much info about the condition to help me manage it.
Thanks for listing to me rambling!
