Had heart ablation 15 yrs ago for psvts. While laying on couch, just had a brief flip flop feeling in heart and lightheaded. Should i be concerned?
Ablation: If you've had 15 good years after an ablation, i wouldn't worry about an occassional flip/flop unless its very frequent and lasts a few minutes or longer each time. You should discuss with the dr.(s) who know you and your situation. They will be able to make a more informed recommendation to you. ...Read more
I have had psvt's with heart rate over 250 twice, but I have had cardiac ablation 4 yrs ago. What does this mean?

Stimulants like caffeine and nicotine and stress and lack of sleep also increase the likelihood. ...Read more
Antibiotic risks: This is a very important discussion to have with your doctor. Overall, the benefit of therapy must be weighed against the risk. The FDA has warned that patients with certain conditions are at risk for heart problems with this medication (long QT interval, low blood levels of potassium or magnesium, a slower than normal heart rate, or those on anti arrhythmic drugs). Fortunately those risks are low ...Read more
