Looking for advice, and am posting on my phone so I’ll try to keep short.
In December I went to the ER with what the doctor said was Afib. My heart rate wasn’t fast just beating irregularly. Since that time I’ve had PVC’s every night when I lay down to go to sleep. I was taking atenolol which wasn’t helping the PVC’s so I asked my doctor and she said I could stop. Last night I go into Afib again, heart rate in the 60’s. I take 25mg atenolol and wait 3 hours with no change. Decide to drive to the ER but enroute my heart returned to normal and went home. I’ve had echocardiogram, stress test, holt monitor. All results were pretty normal except for the holt showing the PVC’s and occasional tachycardia / bradycardia.
My question is...what does my future hold? Will this get worse? What can I do to prolong my life? I think I’ll just keep taking the atenolol and baby aspirin. My cholesterol is high...trying to lower it naturally.
