I've been diagnosed with an arrhythmia that's likely to be IST or SNRT. The EP study was inconclusive. They've put me on propafenone 150 thrice a day.. but it makes me feel awful. I have a recurring throat infection while on the drug. Hypotension too. I stopped the propafenone after asking the cardiologist. Now I have low hr going to 35 and high going to 200 bpm. Today I had an episode which I could catch on a home ECG monitor showing the heart rate at 250. I almost passed out. A carotid massage helped abort the episode.
Has anyone had sinus node modification or ablation? How did it help the low hr? Did it lead to a pacemaker?
Thanks in advance for all the answers..
