  1. There are alot of kinds of arrythmia, and they look very different. Denise, are you trying to pin down what arrythmia you have, help other people figure out what they have, or what? You Tube has entire online courses for EMTs on telling the different arrhythmias apart, but unless you have something extremely distinctive, like paroxysmal tachycardia, or atrial fibrillation, or maybe SVTs, that won't help you without access to monitoring equipment.
  2. I have paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, and possibly paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. I cannot take the classes of drugs used to treat these conditions. My cardiologist is not very concerned and does not want to consider an ablation or whatever. He says that noone ever dies of the condition, and no need to call 911 unless I pass out or it lasts however long or whatever, and I'm really not feeling too clear on what whatever would be. I am very interested in how other people deal with this condition, who are explicitly NOT taking drugs for the condition, or else they are taking drugs for the condition but the drugs aren't working, which I have the impression doesn't happen a whole lot. The problem specifically interferes with exercise and creates all sorts of uneeded drama at work. Thanks! Yours, Dora Smith
