About 3 yrs ago, I started having fast heart rate and beat very hard late in the evenings or in the middle of the night. My blood pressure drops to around 80/60 and then I get the most awful pain in my stomach. This lasts for about an hour. I have had 2 ablations trying to fix it but they have not worked and I am not willing to go thru that again. Can someone tell me what causes this and what can I do to fix it? It is a very scary thing to go thru.I can tell that it does something to my blood pressure because right when it starts to happen, I can feel my whole body start to flush and prickly. It wakes me up in the dead of sleep with a hard beat to my heart.View Thread
I am having problems where I have these "attacks" in the evening or in the middle of the night where my heart rate goes very fast and pounds very hard and my blood pressure drops to like 80/60. I can't even move when this happens and then when it starts to ease off, I get the worst pains in my stomach and literally doubled over with pain. This last for about an hour and then just goes away. I have had 2 ablations trying to repair this but obviously that hasn't worked. Any ideas on why this is happening? PLEASE HELP!!!! It really is about the most painful experience I have ever had. It has been going on for about 3 years.View Thread
