about 2 weeks ago I started feeling a fluttering senstion in my chest, but it went away within 1 week being replaced by a very uncomfortable kind of heavy feeling and slight shortness of breath,but with no pain.. I seen my doctor today and she listened to my heart and said she heard nothing abnormal but that my heart was racing really fast so she did a EKG and said my heart rate was at 100 and was concerned about this, she started me out on a medicine called "Nadolol ", and I am getting blood work on Tuesday of next week to see if it might be my potassium levels that might be causing the high heart rate? I actually thought I was having a heart attack, I am a 42 yr old female, I am on high blood pressure meds and meds for acid reflux as well.. I can't believe I am 42 and taking heart medicine, Will this lead to an eventual heart attack and is anyone else on this medicine for the same thing?
Thx for any input available!
