I started to suffer from palpitations about six months after the op and it was thought I would have to get a pace maker but my cardioligist then put me on a low dose of beta blocker as I am on other medication for high blood pressure, and can only be on a small dose because it would interfer with my medication.
This was working fine no problems and then I notice over the past 6 - 8 weeks they have started to come back and seem to be getting stronger and and I am aware of them most of the time with a feeling in my chest and then up my neck. On the evening inquestion, for my dinner I had a plate of pasta with a pesto sauce and a glass of red wine, followed by a cup of coffee.
Finally after many failures with medications i have started on Rhymodan and it works for me.
I am not happy to be on medication and wonder if i had left it alone would it have gone away when menopause ended. Two years ago I had a heart attack and last year a quadruple by pass.
) but decaff for the rest of the time, I feel alot better for it.
The tightness in my chest is gone and the palpatations have eased.
Once I was reassured by my doctor and cut down my coke intake they stopped. I have been experiencing palpitations for 18 months now and am exhausted from them. I have spent 10 days in hospital being monitered, but I still have them.
I have been put on beta blockers to see if they can control them. I do have a family history of a rare heart complaint, but the docs. However much docs tell you not to worry,you can't help but be concerned about it.
He told me I was drinking too much tea and coffee and often when I was tired.
I started dringing a lot of herbal tea and water never drink coffee watch fatugue and drink tea less. I have tachacardia for 3 years.cannot touch full cream milk.
When I went to the see the doctor about the palpitations that I was experiencing it turned out to be the amount of coke (cafefine intake) that I was drinking.
But what was making them worse was extremely worrying.
Unfortunately, I cannot tell you the results of the blood test yet as I have an appointment to see him tomorrow!
