  • Palpitations and AF horrible feeling, but can be controlled. I have had episodes for 10 years and am currently wearing a 7 day monitor. Try not to worry as they seem to be looking after you well. I found I got palpitations with Fostair so I was changed to QVAR which seems OK. All the best.

  • I really do think mine is due to either lack of sleep due To Montelukast (which is quite new to new ) .or the steroids are still in my system even though I finished the course Thursday ,,,,,or the doxycycline with this us my 3 week on them ,,,,I've got no ebpnergy st all,

    But can you tell me why you are wearing a monitor? 🤔

  • We moved home and so hospitals in May so, as I have heart problems as well as lung problems both consultants are doing a full range of tests. So far I have had echocardiogram and ecg, ct angiogram, chest x-ray and now heart monitor for the cardiologist and chest x-ray, lung function tests, 6 minute walk, scan and bronchoscopy for the respiratory physician, who has confirmed bronchiectasis, emphysema, collapsed middle lobe, and probably bronchiolitis obliterans which may have been caused by one of the anti-arrhythmia drugs. Avoid amiodarone or dronedarone as far as possible because both can possibly affect breathing and/or eyesight. Respiratory physician thinks my worsening lung problems may be caused by the dronedarone. The hospital, Southmead, in Bristol, is being very thorough, for which I am grateful and I hope they can keep me going for a bit longer as I still enjoy life!
