Avatar m tn ). My question is: to further identify what type of an arrhytmia it is i need an ECG recorder, right? I guess the spike on the image is unconclusive? I was thinking of buying the Kardia Mobile from Alivecor, has anyone had any experiences with it? Thank you!
Avatar m tn I captured the following image from my holter software. Note that this was at complete rest while sitting down and working at a computer: I also captured this image during the same month. Looks like a slower form of NSVT while sleeping: I saw an electrophysiologist who saw the first image and recommended an EP study just to be safe. I've been postponing it for months and I constantly ask myself if I really need it.

Avatar f tn The doctor told me that I might have had hidden tonsillitis and prescribed me Metoprolol. I was told not to gain weight, to be careful with exercise and do a stress test once a year; then I was sent back to my family doctor who decided to check my blood for anemia - I'm currently waiting for the results and making a list of questions I should ask my doctor.
Avatar f tn Heres a picture, the one at the bottom with the LA traced, and you can see that the image has to be face on. If tilted in any way, the image will greatly distort the LA internal dimensions/volume. Good point.
Avatar m tn I don't think Toprol helps me at all (metoprolol). Remember, with a slower heart rate, premature beats can occur easier (the lower frequency of sinus beats increase the possibility that they occur). I use a nonselective beta blocker when they are at the worst, which also reduces adrenaline levels in the body, that works better for me. That said, you should definitely not change medications unless your doctor tells you to do it.
Avatar n tn 2 aortic root aneurysm last June 27. Went on Beta Blocker (Metoprolol) 25 mg 2xdaily last July. I do not like the way they make me feel. If I sit down for any length of time, I doze off. I do not have the energy nor the stamina I once had. Sometimes when I lay down my head will feel like it is spinning slightly. Most of the time I feel like I just got up from a LONG NAP. Noticed that my Cholesterol went up as well. Read that that is one of the side effects as well.
1209084 tn?1267371006 The surgeon was unable to place stents or relieve either blockage at that time, and they sent me home with three new prescriptions for Metoprolol, Amlodipine, and Niacin. My question is, how common is it for an angioplasty to simply be impossible to accomplish? And can the medication changes I've received clear these blockages and eliminate the need to have an angioplasty at all (with the prerequisite lifestyle changes, which I have started to do)?
Avatar m tn In 2004 I had surgery to graft an ascending aortic aneurysm, I returned to full activity. I now take 50 mg of Metoprolol and 150 mg of Avapro daily. My BP is generally normal, but can dip to as low as 90/60 after endurance exercise in the summer. Three times since my surgery (including last night), I've experienced temporary complete loss of vision in one eye, I think it was my right eye each time.
Avatar n tn Even though this is the same diameter as the rest of the vessel, we know it has reduced in size because we have the original document and procedure images. You now request that the image be sent for a second opinion. A Cardiologist looks at the image and sees that the area of stent is the same width as the rest of the vessel. He assumes that nothing is abnormal because he doesn't have the 4mm image to compare it with. To him this vessel is fully open. Do you see what I'm trying to say?
Avatar n tn Beta-blockers, such as metoprolol or atenolol are also helpful for some. (3) Many patients pass out with tilt table testing who are perfectly normal. So an isolated "positive" tilt table test is not too concerning. I didn't read in your post that passing out was a major part of the problem -- if it is then it is likely unrelated to the PVCs unless VT was seen during the tilt, which is unlikely given the fact that you did not mention anything about having a defibrillator.
Avatar n tn the CCF doc can be more explicit about how they 'measure' these things and you could ask your docs...IIRC they measure the reduction in size of flow in the image of the tracer dye and don't see the plaque per se, or artery wall thickness etc...and of course they don't know what you looked like before the MI..
Avatar n tn Eventually, the side effects of metoprolol became worse than the PVCs, though. As the side effects of the metoprolol got worse, it also seemed like the effectiveness of it in controlling my PVCs became less. In the end, there was no good reason to continue taking the metoprolol. Drinking alcohol makes my PVCs worse afterward. The next morning when I wake up, my heart feels like it's skipping a lot of beats.
Avatar f tn Wow! This is eerie to suddenly come upon this thread. Had a heart attack at 45 in Jan '08, with 100% blockage of the LAD. They stented it. I had a rod like pain about the size of a 4" pencil to the left of my sternum - my cardiologist said it was nothing extraordinary. Had a lot of travel and work stress in Sep/Oct and I started getting intermittent pain traveling up the neck to the left side of my jaw. The pain also radiated to my left arm pit.
Avatar n tn Once I get my bearings I settle down and can get back to sleep but it's super unsettling. I've had tachycardia issues for a few years and have been on metoprolol for about 7 months (had an ablation that wasn't effective). The met keeps my PVCs mostly under control, but this waking up after 30-45 min. of sleep is a relatively new deal for me. I've noticed that I have a sinus symptom along with my heart issues.
Avatar f tn My cardiologists told me to give up all caffeine and he put me on metoprolol. He also told me that they could possibly go away on their own. Thanks for all of the posts. I gathered some good info..
Avatar n tn I have always worn glasses and my left eye has always been worse than my right but in the last week my eyes have gotten really bad. I look at something than look away yet still see the image I Was just looking at. I feel like everything is kind of in a haze. My ability to focus on things is just really poor. I also get dizzy If I move my head too fast.. and feel nauseaous, almost like motion sickness. I feel like Im high without the euphoria . It all feels kind of dream like.
Avatar n tn I told him I would rather wait but the pills do not help the pain at all. I am on Diovan for heart and Metoprolol also Levothyroxin for Thyroid. I can not believe there is so many of us with it and can not find out what it is. Please keep us posted if any results.
