Hey. I got diagnosed with RVOT when I was 15 (21 now). I get 20,000 irregular beats per day. They classed it as benign. I've been taking magnesium citrate, potassium and calcium which all help in heart contractions.
I have had really scary episodes recently, my heart got to the point where the pulse just felt like one long wave! But it passed after 10 mins, felt quite drained, the body was shaking and everything.
Any of you RVOT sufferers experience this?
My heart generally normalises rhythm into 4/4 when exercising, but afterwards it does those James Brown funky beats, pauses, a cycle of three and then a flutter and maybe a raised BPM temporarily and then reverting back to its usual rhythm.
Would you kindly offer some reassurance? Because I'm scared to death sometimes even though docs and cardiologist said to just live with it.
I really fear this condition, I constantly have in the back of my mind "what if the cardiologist got something wrong in the diagnosis and maybe missed out that it could be malignant"?
