I am a 37 year old female with ablation corrected SVT. I had the ablation approx. 5-6 years ago. Since the ablation It seems that I have developed other symptoms. I've had EKG's, Tilt Table ( I fainted), Echo, Heart MRI, Worn the 30 day holter monitor, nuclear stress test and all tests have come out good. My holter monitor was very active with PVC"S and PAC's. My doctor assures me that as long as my heart is structually normal and there is no heart disease then these PVC's and PAC's are nothing to worry about. My monitor did have a 7 beat episode of VT. My doctor says that another ablation will not help these episodes. He wants to admit me to the hospital for three days and start me on a drug from Beta Pace called sotalol. I am on atenolol 25 mg twice a day. It makes me tired, gives me heart burn and congestion. It helps keep my heart from racing. I still get PVC and PAC's. But I don't want to take it forever. After reading about sotalol, quite frankly I'm scared! The side affects and the fact that you have to start it in a hospital setting because life resuscitation equipment may needed totally scares me and I am leaning towards not doing it. I want more info on the sotalol, how safe is it? How many people experience serious side effects? Is it better for male or females? Are these antiarrhythmic drugs safe? I want to improve the quality of my life but have not had a lot of direction on how to handle all of this. My anxiety is sky high and wonder if it could be complicating my issues. Also one more thing, I have been waking up two to three hours after going to bed with a feeling of shortness of breath, slight ache in upper left chest, feeling just "uncomfortable" and when I checked my heart rate, it was 54-59.....I take 25 mg atenolol before bed. I don't know if this heart rate is to low and causing these symtoms. I have to sleep in an elevated position (lots of pillows to keep my head up) and I have also moved a recliner into my room because I can't sleep "NORMAL" anymore. The symptoms I described have been going on for a few years. I am on my second opinion with a different cardiologist and I still feel like I am not getting anywhere. Should I consider a third opinion? Do you have recommendations for electrophysiologist in the Denver area? I'm scared of the choices I have, but I want to make the right one so that I can get on living life. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
