Following on from my difficulties following my first shock and being put on amiodarone; link here: https://www.pacemakerclub.com/message/36222/amiodarone-causing-constant-dizziness
My condition the last week or so has deteriorated even more. I am constantly out of breath, even just resting. I constantly have a light head and feel dizzy. I have started to feel my heart doing 'hiccups', I struggle to fall asleep at night and wake up exhausted and am tired all the time.
Could it be down to lowering my Carvedilol dosage and taking me off Eplerenone and Losartan completely to try and combat the dizzy symptoms I was having? My blood pressure has rose from 90/60 to around 110/70 but I don't 'feel' any better and the dizzy symptoms are still there.
Part of me thinks that my heart is on its last legs and is struggling to pump blood around my body hence why I feel light headed, dizzy and tired all the time. I walk up a flight of stairs and am exhuasted. I was not like this last year.
The doctors at my hospital have been very unhelpful even though I have been calling every other day. What should I do? I am a 30 year old male.

I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
