Re: Coping with SVT
My heart NEVER wants to beat correctly, but I keep my arrhythmias "mostly" in check, thru Digoxin, thru diet and thru avoiding things that stimulate or irritate my heart, such as caffeine, cigarette smoke, chemicals, VOCs, high glycemic carbs, etc.
It is not easy to cope with heart and arrhythmia problems. We not only have to cope with the arrhythmia problems, we've got to cope with the unpleasant side effects from the medications.
I've got permanent Atrial Fibrillation. That means that the top part of my heart is constantly gyrating like a bowl of jello. Fortunately, I am not aware of this happening. And, as long as my heart does not get agitated or irritated, the AFib does not spread towards my ventricles, and all is OK.
What meds are you taking to keep your arrhythmias in check?
CHF, A-Fib, HBP, Diabetes, Asthma doing great
⇒ Avoid allergic & non-allergic irritants/triggers
⇒ Low calorie ovo-vegetarian diet
⇒ Power walk, weight lifts, pushups
⇒ Coreg 25mg bid
