Hello there! Newbie here, glad to have found this site. I have been having heart rhythm issues for awhile now. I honestly thought it was my anxiety so didn’t really think into it too much. That was until I fainted at work. They sent me to a cardiologist to be checked up. I had an echo, stress test, tilt table, and Holter Monitor. Everything was good except for the holter. It showed a lot of bradycardia and some tachycardia as well as several complete pauses in my heartrate.
So I then saw an electrophysiologist and he had me get a 30 day event monitor. Only 1 1/2 weeks in he called me and said that I am going in and out of afib and I have a very slow heartrate. So he would like to do an ablation and a possible pacemaker implantation.
To say I’m scared is an understatement!! I feel that 39 is too young for this! But I would love some advice from you all.
Thank you in advance.
