Living With Wolff-parkinson-white (wpw) SyndromeI have been diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome and for the past year my symptoms have become worse. I have not been able to exercise because I get very severe symptoms such as; heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain/cramps, chest and head tightness/pressure. I have also been experiencing (sometimes); pain & numbness in (mostly) my left arm, neck, jaw & sometimes stomach, nausea, severe lightheadedness/fatigue, sudden heaviness & weakness throughout my body, and sudden heat and flushing or cold sweat, and have trouble talking-extremely slow (and thinking) and very slow body movements...everything seems to be moving like in a slow motion movies. I was taking Metoprolol, and then Sotalol, but neither worked. Now I am taking Multaq, but have not seen much improvement either. :(
This all has been very hard and irritating to live with lately...any advice?
