Wow! 30% blockage is not normal for your age. Your symptoms could escalate any existing anxiety, but I don't think that is the primary condition. Next time you have those symptoms again, please dial 911. Do not drive yourself to the hospital emergency room. They will check for cardiac issues immediately and refer you to the appropiate doctors. Rough that you're changing primary doctors at this time. Can you inform the new one about your concerns and get the appointment moved up sooner?View Thread
I have the same issues. My heart rate is usually over 100 to about 125 for a few hours. I do have Afib, CHF and a metal mitral valve. The cardio aversion procedure did not work. The doc gave me medicines to take and those do the trick. They take about 1 to 2 hours to kick in. I don't like the idea of taking these on a long term basis. My cardiologist says that I can enjoy life, yet take it very easy. I am tired most of the time and every day household tasks are monumental. I have lost 31 lbs since March 1, 2013 and still losing. Not quite sure what to make of all of this, but I am interested in any responses that you migh receive.View Thread
