Thought I'd come in and see if any of you can help me. I read a few threads on here but I didn't see anything that was pertaining to what i'm experiencing.
I was diagnosed with SVT after a few years of passing out, having trouble breathing, and fatigue. I have been through cardiologists like pages in a book and finally have found a great DR. After being referred to him last year, my first appointment with him, he told me that he'd like to perform a cardiac ablation, which I agreed too. This was in January of this year. After finding out that the ablation was unsuccessful, he put me on Nadolol, metoprolol, and diltiazem. After a fews months of unsuccessful tries with a bunch of different medications, he decided he wanted to ablate again, as there was something really wrong, which was responding to any medication given. I just had my second ablation done, Wednesday of last week, which was successful. It was found that I had sinus node malfunction. He ablated about
six places, stayed over night and sent me home the next day on no medication except for the Nadolol.
It's been about
a week post ablation and for the past couple of days my heart has been racing. HR isn't as high as it usually was, but still. Also, I'm having a lot of trouble breathing.. anything I do, even resting.. is taking a toll on me. I keep gasping for air.
I can't sleep, feels worse when I lay on my left side. My chest has been killing me and hurts worst when I take a deep breath. Yesterday, I had a real sharp pain on my left side, everytime I moved or took a deep breath. My back & shoulders hurt as well. about
20 minutes ago, I felt a extremely sharp pain in my calf, and then it subsided.
Anyone else have any trouble like this?
I called my doctor today and he was in the operating room all day, gonna try again tomorrow.. from there if I can't get a hold of him, I don't know.
