Running at 132bpm

This fast HR can now just go take a hike!! Enough is enough today thank you!!

Had it since getting up this morning not gone below 97bpm and that’s mainly at rest usually if I walk etc through it, it knocks it down but not today I know I won’t be right again now till I’ve slept the night through....... hopefully!!! Roll on Wednesday I really can’t wait for this ablation to happen I don’t care if I feel bruised and black and blue if it stops this ridiculous fast HR

Sorry folks needed to vent!!! Thanks

Know how you feel. It's a vile condition, thank goodness your ablation is next week. Here's hoping things settle in advance so you can be in good form. Take care and rest today.

I’ve read it hits athletes more often...

Is it making you feel ill with your heart at that rate? It really is a horrible condition to have and I can understand just how you must be feeling.

Hope you're soon feeling a lot better.

Vent away! It does help somewhat. At least you were more polite than I was - I told my racing heart to bu**er off, because I was fed up with its nonsense!! Makes you feel in control to some degree.

Best wishes for Wednesday - not too long to wait.

Wishing you well for Wed. Hope all goes to plan and you can enjoy a smoothly running heart rate again.

I have just had my 18th electrical cardioversion yesterday ( +3 ablations in the bag as well) so know a bit about the dreaded palpitations!

Best wishes

Sandra

Thanks Pete....not actually feeling too good. I'm putting it down to the mega dose of Bisoprolol not having left my system. Chest feels very tight and breathless upon mild exertion. Heart rate in mid 60s. Discovered via my Kardia that I actually went back into AF ( not fast) after I left hospital but back in sinus later thst night. Will see GP Mon if it persists. Did you ever have this prob ?

Yes

I accidentally overdosed on Flecainide once. I was really worried and felt awful in a similar way for a couple of days.

Whilst the PIP solution does 9 times out of 10 stop an attack of AF it always makes me feel rough for at least a day.

With Bisoprolol 2.5 taken under direction, double my normal dose, I went into Bradycardia and as a result my heart rate dipped below 40bpm. This also made me feel very bad.

Definitely best not to do it in the first place we should be more careful.

Oh how horrid, Sandra :( That sounds rotten. Hoping you can sleep and feel better in the morning ... and that your heart settles safely - and permanently- into NSR. X

Oh yes ‘heavy in the chest’ is very descriptive ... I guess it’s not surprising when your chest has been coping with the frantic heartbeat - and probably tension in your body too. I sometimes feel like it just becomes a great deal of effort for the chest to breathe in and out sometimes!

Hope you feel better through the day x

It's horrible, but that heart rate isn't too worrying. Mine was 195+ for 2 weeks and I survived

Roll on ablation day

If it is fast yet regular it maybe Atrial Tachycardia not Atrial Fibrillation.

If so my understanding is that it is easier to treat than AF.

In either case best wishes for next Wednesday.

I know exactly how you feel. I had the ablation, piece of cake....honest. BUT, it only lasted 3 mo. If you drink, STOP, I think it brought it on. Good luck with your procedure.

I hope with all my quivering heart it goes so well for you, I've been in Afib since last weekend, usually flecanide converts, didn't this time, and had enough even if it does once this bug clears, so looking to have an ablation

You won’t feel much at all just slight irritation when they are doing the Ablation. But expect to feel very tired for month or so after Ablation. As I found it upsets your body more than you think as you think it’s not major surgery. Please listen to your body for a while after Ablation. And sleep if you need to sleep as it’s your bodies way of recovering and repairing itself. Hope this helps. Take care of yourself for a while. Regards mike
