Looking after your heart 1

A description of some experiences put together in association with one of our readers.


As a male in my 70s, I had been seeing Cardiologist AAA for more than 6 years and, basically, h always gave me good reports on my heart.

But, late in October 2015, I started experiencing something that I’d never experienced before – my pulse rate started being more than 130 more than 30% of the time, which had me greatly concerned.

As it turned out, my annual check-up by Cardiologist AAA was due on the 10 Nov 2015, and his reaction was simple – “Off you go and get a pacemaker,” and referred me to Cardiologist BBB, obviously one of his mates.

(Cardiologist AAA reported to my GP that we’d had a good discussion about pacemakers, which wasn’t true in the slightest.)

Also, as it turned out, my high pulse rates stopped before I saw Cardiologist BBB about 10 days later, although he insisted that a pacemaker was still needed. But they started again on 21 Jan 2016, and showed no signs of going away over the next two and a half months.

Having recently had a very bad experience with another surgeon in another area, I was reluctant to have a pacemaker inserted until I got further opinions – I got opinions from four other Cardiologists and they ALL said that a pacemaker was not the way to go!!!!

And, on 5 May 2016, one of them suggested that I start taking a certain medication, and to me, it’s effect has been nothing short miraculous. Within 5 to 6 weeks my pulse rate was back to normal, and it’s been back to normal ever since, except on two days, for a few hours, and on each occasion it seemed to relate to the fact that I’d been a bit slack in taking the medication, and as soon as I started taking the medication normally again, my pulse rate was back to normal within a few hours.

The reason for asking you to do this is that it’s a bit hard to get reliable statistics on posts on blogs, but we can get reliable statistics on the pages like the one we’ve referred to you, and we believe these statistics help us concentrate on the matters that are of the most interest, concern and use to our readers.
