Hi Gimli, what bb are you on? I was a huge mess the first 5 days, and slowly the side effects are diminishing, right now it's mostly fatigue and sluggish. And my legs are restless and I don't want to sleep longer than 6 hours at night, and I have to take the Xanax or I only sleep for 2 hours at a time. I just don't know about the amount I'm on, but I think I will eventually have to go up in dosage, as it still gets my rate high. Are you taking it for the mvp?

LeeAnn-
Hi, I missed talking to you. Isn't it weird how the bb's can make our heart rate go really low, and yet than go really high too? Mine lets my heart get down to 50, but when I stand up and move around can get up to 110 for awhile, before settling back down. No, my Dr. has not cleared me for exercise yet. I asked her about the SVT and she said she is completely confident that the Dr. who interpreted it is right about it being SVT. Nontheless, I had asked my Dr. friend, he is only a GP, but been a Dr. for about 40 years, if he would double check the strips. I have not heard back from him yet. He works with a Cardiologist/Internal Dr. so I was hoping if he couldn't read the strips he could ask the Carido Dr. The only thing I worry is that the SVT episodes was only 6 beats long, so they don't have much of anything to study there. In a way, I have come to the decision somewhere in my head that I really do have SVT, because it is such a different feeling in my heart when it reaches a certain point, and it does that skipping feeling, that it doesn't do at 145. I could be wrong, and I hope I and the Holter Dr. is wrong, but we'll see. LeeAnn, I'm scared to even go run. I make myself get up and move around during the day, but it's getting winter here in Montana and I don't like being cold, so I try to go for a ten to 15 minute walk, but if I feel my hr at 100 or 110, I slow down. I'm trying super hard to get a control on my anxiety, but darn, it's got the best of me right now. I just ordered the Linden Method tonight, and ordered it priority mail. I'm desperate to try anything. I wish someone could just hypnotize me into a new person. I wish I was like my husband. He was told 2 years ago by his Dr. that they thought he had bone cancer, and for a year we did tons of testing, x-rays, blood works, bone scans, cat scans, mri's and finally found that he ONLY has a autoimmune disease, that is extremely painful and will one day cripple him, but not once when he was told he had cancer did he even come close to reacting like I am. I almost hate myself. He is out working in another state right now for us, takes all sorts of medicines and shots, and not once complains. He is so strong, and I am so weak. Nothing gets him down, he loves life.
I bet if they gave me Inderal for headaches and didn't tell me any of the side effects, I probably wouldn't know them either. I wish the Xanax didn't make me goofy. It does help with the anxiety, but then I'm sluggish more. I am on .25mg, do you think if I upped it that it might take the sluggishness away? I don't know. My DR. friend told me to take at LEAST .25 3xday, but possibly more. My current Dr. only wants me on .25mg twice day and only for two months and then I'm cut off. They are both conflicting. But I believe they both have my best interest at heart. My Dr. just doesn't want me addicted and really wants me to keep trying an SSRI or some other type to help with the anxiety instead of just the Xanax. I am thinking of trying another one again, maybe Lexapro. Haven't tried that one yet. All the others never worked, but she said one might help.
Thanks for being here for me, Michelle
