WOlfe Parkinson White Syndrome

Posted By Denise Loughran on October 07, 1997 at 00:43:26:









Would appreciate more info on diagnosing this syndrome. My sympsotms include 2 episodes over 18 months apart of extremely fast, heavy and irregular hearbeat with shortness of breath and on one episode, lightheadedness. I do not consume alcohol or smoke. I am under little or no stress and have no history of heart problems in my family. I am 42 yrs of age and in good health otherwise. My doctor says I just suffered a couple of bouts of ventricular fibrillation with no known cause.  A resting EKG showed no irregularities. He prescribed Digoxin- ongoing.
A freind's husband died of Wolfe Parkinson syndrome at age 44 after beign given a very similar diagnosis and course of treatmeent as I just received. Any ideas:?
