3 year update, palps or PSVT

I was diagnosed 3 years ago with PSVT 10,000 extra a day, felt a lot of them and drove me nutso. I felt it was from heavy exercise over the previous year or chemical fumes I would breathe on occasion. Dr. wanted to do an ablation, I refused and thought let my heart mend since I had no structural issues, all electrical. I put my feet up and relaxed. Many drugs I tried and currently love 5 mg of Bystolic, to me it's a wonder drug compared to all the others I tried, Calcium blockers, beta yada yada.

I won't be seeing that Ablation Dr., he was wrong, that I would be back in 4 years. My palps are non existent to me now except when I stress and drink too much coffee, you know these times, we all get them. I feel great, rest worked.

See a Dr., get the info and make good choices.

Good luck and God Bless

Congratulations, taking charge and life style changes can be the major part of the cure if some mechanical (surgery) change isn't needed.  

I do not know what Bystolic is (a heart rhythm drug?), but if it works, it must be right.  Here I recall in fighting a night time nasal congestion condition a nose spray like Afrin works great, but don't use it more that a few nights in a row or it will do damage.  Just an example, not a tie to the drug you get good results from.

Always good to read some good-news, thanks and God Bless right back to you.

Bystolic IS a beta blocker that also contains a vasodialator component in it.  I'm happy that is is working for you.  As a cautionary note though, Bystolic is not a drug that you can abruptly end, and here are also a number of serious side effects associated with this drug.
