I have svt. I had 2 attacks.your heart is supposed to be something like 70-80 bpm.mine were237 bpm.I had cathader ablation which helped.that was yr ago.went yr without probs.now I've been having pvc's nonstop day/night.they put me back on atenolol which stopped them at first,then took me off for event monitor.went back on attenolol.didn't stop them.makes me really tired and worn out,out of breath,some of them knock the wind out of me and make my head hurt and chest pain.the hard ones make my eyes feel wierd.I get dizzy lightheaded.feel like crap.so went back to doc this week for monitor results and he said he wants to do the holter monitor to see exactly what kind of pvc im having.this monitor will record 24,7 which is good because then they can see how its happening constantly.but anyway he said this way if im havn like just one kind um like one area or something then we can do 2nd ablation on heart.if its the all over all around kind then no abaltion cuz it will be a wild goose chase to pinpoint where the pvcs are.so anyway he changed my heart med to metroprolol.well, this ones not working either.and its making me feel like crap.its suppose to be a cousin of atenolol and the dose can be adjusted.it also treats chest pain.I know pamphlet said can take couple wks before youu get full benefit from it.so I am giving it this week and see.but I didn't have any side effects with atenolol.ever since I started this medicine.I feel horrible.im tempted to call doctor this week but I want to give it a chance.but did anyone take this medicine and have side effects=metroprolol? I been getting really dizzy.I was in bf truck and he was tryin to get me to go to hospital because I was seeing spots,I was dizzy,thought and felt like I was gonna black out/pass out.everything I looked at just seemed wierd like with my eyes or something.can't really describe it but it wasn't good.and it hasn't stopped pvcs yet.any advice????

If you are having episodes of near-fainting, you should be talking to your physician about it for sure. I'm sorry to hear that you've been so uncomfortable.
