Hi guys as you iv had a few dramas with fainting etc since heart attack in February. Finally thought stint in hospital fixed the problem and was diagnosed with pots. Was put on verapramil but didn't notice too much difference until this past wk. Iv passed out twice in rehab again. Once before class had even started. The strange thing is when this previously happened my heart rate spiked and bp was high. Now heart rate and bp are really low. Iv to pick up another prescription today. Don't know what for yet but I must admit I'm really starting to worry and I'm not really the worrying kind. Anyone else experience this and any insight or advise would really be appreciated. Sorry for long post. I don't seem to be able not to go on a bit
Feeling a bit scared now: Hi guys as... - British Heart Fou...
If you do find that you need a pacemaker then that's nothing to worry about. It's a very routine procedure these days and is very minor surgery. I suspect that a PM would be offered if it is decided that your heart rate and rhythm needs to be stabilised to stop you passing out.
I was originally scheduled to have one fitted this week but my cardiologist has delayed it while my heart rhythm stabilises after my ablation 5 weeks ago.
Have you got an appointment to see your cardiologist? I hope you find a treatment for your condition soon.
