I was just wondering if anyone could shed light on, or has experienced anything similar to this.
When I walk any distance at around 5pm I get very pronounced ectopics, and have to stop walking for them to stop. I have had a holter test that shows them not to be runs of ectopics but alternating ectopics and normal beats. Apparently, according to my arrhythmia nurse, they are not dangerous but are quite debilitating (as I can't walk far and need to stop often for my heartbeat to 'reset').
Now the odd thing is that in the morning I can walk miles (and often do with no problem and at lunchtime I may get a few discrete ectopics when I walk but nothing that is problematic. Just the evening at home time!
My background is that I had a sustained VT attack that I needed shocking out of about four months ago, had meds and ICD to protect against future incidents and had been making a successful recovery (and still am in all other respects). Only suggestion from nurses is that I try increasing Bisolpropol (from 5mg to 7.5mg) but otherwise they don't consider it a significant issue. Trouble is, as I can't drive, not being able to walk any distance is doubly restricting.
Any thoughts or suggestions - or similar experiences - would be welcome.
