Have anyone consulted with a sports cardiologist?
With the passing of my EP cardiologist I don't have anyone adjusting my pm. With on-going struggles with it while running I thought maybe a sports cardiologist might be someone with whom I can consult. I run ultra slow but get out of breath, fatgued and feel chest pressure. Recovery is near instant but the 3 not-my-amigos are repetitive. Post run I can feel this, at times, more intensely. It seems as if the pm is not working but whenever I had it checked it was. Also, I am still off-medication (about 5 weeks) except for 81mg of aspirin. I still monitor for atrial flutter. If I do have an episode that lasts more then 30 seconds I will go back on a beta blocker. So far so good... PS: I watched several UCLA and Youtube videos on Atrial Flutter, Pacemakers, Heart Failure and Heart Block. Depressing. I'm sure I will feel better later watching Netflix. *(*
Oh, I wanted to add something. I post and then I can't find my way back.. I don't know if it is my memory or something else.. My navigation skills on this site seem to be inadequate...

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
