I also forgot to mention my PVC's are gone. They kept me up with ll that slamming around!! It's so nice to be able to sleep without my heart beating out my chest. I had tried over 25 meds before they did the procedure. I've tried everything and failed before this procedure.
The only thing that seemed like it would be successful was the MIdodrine. But the side effects were too much after only a week. I still take Diltiazem.
There is always hope. Always new things coming out. It's frustrating to always have to try new things. But eventually one of them is bound to work.
Have you heard of Ivabradine? Drug used in Europe. Should be here here. Supposed to be an amazing drug.
Best of luck to you!!!
Just a quick note to say hi!
I have been doing ok...had a really rough spell prior to Christmas, but I started taking a small daily dose of metroprolol (half a 25mg pill) and it seems to have calmed things down a bit for now...have you ever tried it?? How are you doing? "Skipping away" sounds frustrating...are you having a bad spell?? Keep me posted. Cheers, T
