Since she was diagnosed so late in life, what is her outlook? She's on her second medication now...the Atenolol made her uncontrollably tired, moody, irritable, she was blacking out and getting numbness in hands and feet. She's undergoing her 3rd (or maybe 4th -- losing track) holter monitor test today to check progress. I read that when diagnosed in infancy, they don't have to take meds all their lives. How about a teenager? She's still having problems when exercising (or running w/her cheer squad)...real pounding heart, tight chest, tightness in throat and a "syrupy" sensation in her mouth. She was cleared by her cardiologist to do cheer, but is this normal. The meds did regulate her heartrate...which was 160 to 200 at rest before...and the new med doesn't make her as sleepy, but she still has problems. Any input?
