About Me: Male, 84, Whitehall, PA, member since Jan 2009
I'm married to a wonderful woman who is concerned with my arrhythmias and of late chest pains. I'm seeing an electrophysiologist at a good teaching hospital and he' s trying to understand what is going on, since I've had some runs of VT on event monitor, but in all othe
[More]r respects I appear to be healthy, no comorbities. I do have A/F every three months that doesn't last more than two hours and I am not symptomatic. I've had it for ten years. But since November, I have had a lot of palpitations. Sometimes as manh as three during sleep, which means I'm not getting much sleep. By accident I realized that if I slept sitting up my palpitations are not so intense and I cannot feel my PVCs. I'm retired and write short stories and poetry and love to play scrabble. My wife and I play almost every night while listening to music.
