Tired of "running"

Posted 08-02-2012 at 09:10 AM by goldenfox

In 2008, I was diagnosed with Abnormal Inappropriate Tachycardia Syndrome as well as PVC's. My resting HR is 130-150. When I walk, it goes up to 170-190. Any type of exercise and it will go clear over 210. I am tired all the time. Have been on both Beta-blockers and Channel blockers. No improvement.
