I am 61 years young. Three months ago, palpitations started. I really thought I was heading towards heart surgery or something. I went to the doctor thinking it was a consequence of my hysterectomy 9 months ago. Not so. I was out on a heart monitor and diagnosis was nasal myocardia or something like that. I was told it was not life threatening. I went to a cardiologist. He put me on .25 mg of metoprolol. It’s the third day on medication today and no more palpitations. So relieved and happy about doctor hitting it on the nail. I sure hope eventually, I can cut back or eliminate medicine. I'm undergoing a heart ultrasound tomorrow to rule out major issues..

I am 68 and I have had palpitations since age 28. They have made my life miserable at times and no medication has helped. Beta blockers drop my blood pressure too low and make me feel exhausted. I have tried many drugs over the years..
