Avatar f tn I had just had my first angina attack and then had a botched arm angioplasty and a brachial artery surgery that has left me with permanent numbness in my left hand (nerve damage during surgery)and 80% blockage due to scar tissue in the main artery taking blood to my hand.Here are the symptoms of metoprolol that had hold of me.lightheaded, swelling of ankles and feet, depression, cold hands and feet, tired, anxiety and nervousness.
Avatar n tn If I understand your mother's condition, she had a low heart rate of 30 bpm and a pacemaker was implanted, but now she has SOB that is being treated with a change of medication? When taking metoprolol, side effects may occur, such as nausea, tiredness, shortness of breath, or slow heart rate...metoprolol may not correct SOB! The pacemaker has corrected bradycardia!?

Everyone hanging in there? It's freaking poison. They lied! But knowledge is power, and we have each other to work it all thru! We're all going to make a full recovery. Everyone taking your vitamins? Drinking enough water? Basic supportive care. B-12 sublinguals all around!
Avatar f tn Once I had the loop recorder implanted, the cardiologist saw that my HR would speed up. I kept telling him that I felt really bad at these times. He would tell me there was no reason to feel bad, but put me on the toprol to work against the tachy problems. And kept me on the midodrine. It was really hard on me. At one time, I could hardly stay up for a couple of hours. Now I am not on any of that stuff. At least me HR isn't as low as when I was on it. It confused me too.
Avatar n tn To address the statement HF has a symptom of sweating is not correct. The confusion regarding sweating and heart conditions may be due to a heart attack can cause nausea, sweating, etc., BUT heart failure does NOT have a symptom of sweating. I have had CHF and there is no sweating involved, and I have researched the subject and answered the question several times in the past...its a matter of confusing HA and HF.. It can be explained and there has been a study done on the subject.
61536 tn?1340701763 tsco, what is the mechanism of your SVT? FOUR ablations? Man. But yeah, I can do the treadmill as long as I keep a certain incline at a certain speed that I know is rate-safe for avoiding SVT. I hate limitations, and it places a few on me. I love being and being active. acjviolin, SVT used to set my nerves on edge too, but after 13 years of having it, it's just annoying now.
Avatar n tn Omega-3 fatty acids appear to enhance the mechanical performance and electrical stability of the heart and to protect against fatal arrhythmia in both humans and animal models. Their mechanism of action likely includes modifying the fatty acid composition of cell membrane phospholipids, affecting cell signaling and controlling ion transfers across the cell membrane." http://www.flaxcouncil.ca/pdf/arr.pdf What we really need is a better ratio of omega-3/omega-9.
Avatar n tn My cardiologist said my heart is OK and it just periodically overreacts to any form of stress or stimulus like catecolamines. He said that although my blood tests are OK I should try to eat food with lots of magnesium and potassium, but didn't suggest I take supplements. Anyone here has had benefit from magnesium supplements? I now take Indeal daily. I know supplements cannot replace meds but maybe they might decrease bad tachy episodes?
233616 tn?1312790796 and this alone may increase ones chances of an SVR even if begun at the end of an SOC regime. Perhaps now, more than any other time it could help insure one will recognize any lingering HCV and seek and destroy as designed. As long as one kept the dose low, monitored the liver, and watched for lactic acidosis, what would be the harm in trying? arguments in favor or opposed please weigh in, if obese women went from 20% to 60% SVR that should tell us something??
Avatar n tn I too have the same thing so it may not be all in your head if your suspect this to be the case. Most dr.'s think your crazy or never heard of this when you even suggest it. Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned. I think I/we can guess or prognose just as well or better than they can at times particularly if we know something about health and or ourselves and our own health.
Avatar n tn When it gets to this point, the best action for me to take is chewing a Gas-X tablet along with half of a 25mg Metoprolol tablet. There is no doubt in my mind that the gas is the cause of my AFIB episodes. There is also no doubt in my mind that what is causing all my problems is known as "Roemheld Syndrome" - - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roemheld_syndrome.
Avatar f tn I do now think it is pretty likely that the Mirena was a big factor in starting off my symptoms, whether it was as a result of sensitivity to levonorgestrel, an autoimmune reaction or some other mechanism of action. However, I am now doing much, much better, so just to say - I'm still here!
Avatar n tn Tonight I am sitting here with PVC's occurring about every couple of minutes. He did prescribe metoprolol which I found gave me EXTREME headaches, and have since been back on propranolol for the past 3 weeks. I worry a bit as I know beta blockers lower blood pressure, as well as heart rates. My blood pressure generally runs about 110/70 (or lower) and my resting heart rate is in the low 50's.
Avatar n tn I've had the same thing happening to me for the past couple of years and it seems to get worse over time. I've been taking 500mg of niacinamide and 750mg of GABA twice a day and it definitely helps some. I'd check out this site if you haven't already: https://community.vhi.ie/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/615103/m/7921097/p/1 I hope you find something helpful there.
Avatar n tn Hi, my partner has been having terrible trouble falling asleep, he complains of feeling a huge surge of adrenaline just as he is about to drift to sleep, this can continue for quite a while until he is so exhausted his body has no choice but to sleep.(this feeling is not associated with any physical twitching or jerking of muscles or limbs) He has fairly recently stopped taking citalopram which was prescribed to alleviate anxiety which he was diagnosed with many years ago.
Avatar n tn 4. After a minute of sweating I suddenly feel something coming out of my rear end. I try to squeeze it out and only a hard stool comes out. 5. The sweating stops and the stomach cramp subsides. I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6.
