    Heart skips a beat...

    I had 22,000 PVC’s and PAC’s measured during a 24 hour heart halter monitoring. My heart beat count during this time was 99,000. Near normal. But the ectopic beats were every 4th beat, it sucked. I could feel them 24 hours a day. Cardiologist had me try several arythmia drugs before finding Propafenone. I reciently had a 4 hour surgery and the anesthesiologist said there were insignificant number of ectopic beats. Seems to be working for me.
  2. Apple Watch Series 4 has highly reliable HR and ECG, Apple is workin* on BP for a future release. It’s expensive but it’s the best,

    Stay strong, it gets better. Positive attitude, meditation, medication, accupuncture and exercise. My process!

    Gabapentin works for me, only side effect is a little sleepiness. So I took at bedtime. Ok also tried Lyrica. Gabapentin seemed to work better for me.
  5. Hi, The issues with wrinkly fingers does not have very much to do with hydration. It has been proven that the wrinkling of fingers is caused by the nervous system. Dysautonomia can often cause wrinkly fingers without exposure to water, mine often go from smooth to wrinkly at a moments notice. Just one more of those Dysautonomia fun facts and symptoms.

    TENS unit for pain

    I use a traditional TENS unit for specific localized pain like neck and coat hanger, but I bought a Quell unit to try and minimize my fibromyalgia pain. It expensive, but they have a 30 day money back guarantee. its been clinically tested and will provide some relief in 80% of patients. I guess I’m in that 80%. Alex

    Simple Question - Heart Rate!!

    180 is way too high. Could be POTS. Get it checked out. Also check your laying down and standing blood pressure. These are important numbers in a diagnosis.

    PVCs/PACs increasing in frequency

    My dysautonomia started with heart issues. During a 24 hour halter monitor I had 17,000 PVC's and PAC's. Doc tried three meds and we were on the way to ablation, we tried propafenone and they are almost gone. There are lots of meds that can help, ask a cardiologist.

    Peppermint tea - helps stomach

    The peppermint tea is great, I also use on OTC pill for IBS. IBguard, it's a peppermint pill that survives the stomach to work in the intestines. Give it a try. Alex

    Running a low temperature

    I run low 96-97 but dot that low. I do have cold sweats sometimes when my temp is low. Don't know why. No answers from docs yet.
  13. Anyone have experience with Functional Neurolgy treatment. I understand it's directed by a Chiroptactor using acupuncture, lasers, nutrition, adjustments and exercises. Looking at hopeful alternative approaches. They promise a lot. Alex Deshuk

    B6 Supplements

    My neuro says almost all supplements are OK, but says avoid B6. Anyone else have this same warning?
  15. I have almost constant abdominal and gastric difficulties. Tests rullled out gastroprsis and scope tests from both ends were normal. My neurologist perscribed Amatiza, which helps with the bowel movements but the pain is still there. A one point it was a 9-10, it comes and goes, but is always there. Anyone else in the same boat.
