Diagnosed With Chronic Muscle Spasms And Heart Arrhythmia. Irregular Heart Beats, Fainting Episodes. Advice?

I'm 20 years old diagnosed with chronic muscle spasms and heart arrhythmia. I don't want to take something so strong that the arrhythmia acts up because it is so sensitive any physical task causes my heart to beat out of control and I've passed out and hurt myself bad almost giving myself a concussion . What would I be able to take?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEE A CARDIOLOGIST / Irregular heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). / EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
     Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much tea, coffee, cola) / Fever / Infection / Pain / Stress / Thyroid / Vitamin D, calcium, magnesium / Medicines like Phenylephrine used for ‘cold’; Salbutamol used for asthma and so on - may be responsible.... / Illicit ‘drugs’ like Amphetamine are notorious to cause abnormal beats / At times, abnormal nerve paths in the heart (bypass tracts) or disease of the conduction system may be responsible!
See a doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
