It is easy, leave the above things, as it's a precipitating cause of your atrial fibrillation. Next you can use a calcium channel blocker, or in extreme cases a ICD is implanted. Talk it out with your doctor, may be he will run a couple of tests.

50 yr old female. Have had food poisoning twice in past 20 years and both times experienced vomiting. Subsequent to the vomiting, my heart rate has become extremely irregular and has shot up t0 230 beats per minute. Rhythm is irregular (skipping), as well as pace (230). I have been converted with adenosine. Is this form of AFib and how can I avoid or stop this from happening?

I am a 76-year old female with atrial fibrillation, having logged blood pressure for 3 months. BP is good, heart rate is consistently staying at 100+ and irregular heart symbol, according to digital BP machine. This I have discussed with triage nurse and am to see heart doctor next week. Am in good health, have no stressors in my life except am a caregiver for my husband. No problems there either. After logging BP s for over 3 months, the doctor changed me from Propranolol 240 mg per day to Metoprolol, just last week. It seems my heart rate is still increasing with no apparent reason off and on the last few days, BP still fine. Still having the irregular heart symbol off and on. No chest pain, no shortness of breath or discomfort. Just the quivery feeling when the heart rate is up. I am resting more. No exercising, just the trips to store at this time.

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

I had a herpetic whitlow - sp? which caused lymphangitis, or red streaking up my hand and arm - about the same time, my heart started beating irregularly and I went on a 7 day course of Keflex. While on the Keflex, my heart was fine. The minute I went off the Keflex, the palpitations came back. I ve worn a heart monitor and was told that 2% of my heartbeats are extra but what I feel is that there is some sort of infection at play here even though my bloodwork has come back normal. Thoughts?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer

My husband is 80 years old and has been diagnosed with congenial heart dease. His heart is only pumping half the speed of a normal heart beat. And now his lungs are filling with fluid. He also has Alzheimer's.
