: I have suffered with a fast heart rate for over 10 years now. Iam a 30 year old female. I never know when it is going to come on. It used to come every year at least once or twice and within the last year it has been coming more often. I have had an episode once a month for the last 3 months. My heart rate gets up to 200 beats a minute and it lasts for hours. Is ther anyone else out there that has it last this long? What medication do you take if any? What does your doctor say? My doctor says not to worry about it and that it isnt going to harm me. When it is beating that fast i get so wiped out and feel tired and cant do much. I take atenolol about 50 mg a day sometimes 75mg a day My doctor says i can take verapamil with the atenolol if i want. I also have PVC's or PAC's where the heart feels like it is skipping a beat.
: I would love to hear from anyone that deals with what i do. You can email me to . Thanks so much
