Not sure what to think
Warrning long post but I need advice. I am a 41 y/o female who was sent to a cardiologist for abnormal EKG and elevated heart rate at resting. So echo cardiogram, stress test, holter monitor came back normal. King of hearts showed that I had a resting heart rate of 112. The cardiologist at the time decided to refer me over to an electrophysiologist. With that appointment the whole 5 seconds he spend in the room stated my blood pressure was to low and if I can get my blood pressure up then my heart problems would go away so I started midodrine. To follow up in two week. Two weeks came and BP was still low so he then started me on Florinief and to follow up in two weeks. Durring that two week in October I was at work and I passed out in a meeting. 911 called and off to the ED. Where I spent the night hooked up to monitors which showed normal. I was discharged home that next day to go straight to the cardiologist office where I was placed on another monitor for two weeks. That monitored showed that I was having 1.5 second heart pauses every third beat but he said it looked good and started my on Bystolic with my other two medications that I was currently taking. As the weeks went on I felt worse and worse. Every two weeks I would go see the cardiologist and he would say I was fine but possibly needed a pacemaker because my heart rate was now 55. Finaly in December I passed out again and cardiologist put in my Pacemaker single lead on December 28. Since then I have not had the energy to get off the couch. Seen my cardiologist several times and he finaly told me that he could not fix everything. This upset me becuase just last August I was a very healthy active 41 year old. Just a few weeks ago I felt like I was going to pass out again and My husband took me to the ED and found that I was very Hypotensive. Stayed in the hospital for two nights untill my BP returned to normal. They took my off the bystolic but kept me on midodrine. I went to follow up with the cardiologist and I told him that my pulse had been running 125-130 and he said to not start and new medication and to let the bystolic get out of my system and my heart rate would retrutn to normal. Over that weekend my pulse was in the 140-150 at rest so I deceided to start taking my bstolic again and look for a new cardiologist. I since have seen a new cardiologist, he has put me on a heart monitor for 7 days but now wants me to start corlanor. I am scaed to death to start a new medication but I know that if I stay on the Bystolic for long period of time my BP will drop again. This new cardiologist is not understanding why I have the pacemaker to begin with. I'm depressed, I'm in panic mode all the time. Does anyone have any advice or wisdom they can share. Is corlanor a good medication? I see that is can cause Afib and that scared me. I'm starting physical therapy next week to see if I can set goals and regain some strength back. Any other suggestions? Is there a safe medication out there that can control my heart rate but not drop my blood pressure. Any advise is appreciated.
