  • Over ten years ago, my mother was given methadone ...

    Over ten years ago, my mother was given methadone as "pain management" post knee surgery. Not having been advised that she should not quit it 'cold turkey', she did and ended up in the ER, where she was then diagnosed with a-fib. Note: Prior to that day, in that she was finally being accepted for knee replacement surgery, among other attempts to deny her the surgery, various physicians had, among other things, insisted she have numerous cardio workups, (even an extensive one, 'post surgery' three months in, that was done the very day before the ER visit) and she had no history of a-fib at all. I had to fight for over five years to get her a pacemaker. She is 95 now and believe me, 'ageism' and physician-based hesitancy played a big role in opposing any helpful intervention, first re. her knees and then later, her heart issue. Indeed, after the a-fib diagnosis, and my, eventually, successful effort to get her prescribed a blood thinner, two different cardiologists stupidly took her off her thinner and in both instances, within a few days she had a stroke. We are not litigious people, but I can sure see why some doctors and hospitals get sued. My mother is 95 now and lives at home with me. She drives to the store, etc on her own and has no apparent dementia, (some residual effects manifest from the two TIA's, but she is dealing with that). Just thought I should give some history. Thank you all. Gary

    Convinced that Amlodipine is a trigger for atrial fibrillation (bad) as well as a control for hypertension (good). Suffered with AFib for about 3 years (mainly palpitations). Condition slowly worsening. Any alternatives to Amlodipine?

    Thanks

    I was diagnosed with Atrial Fib while having a physical for a shoulder surgery. I have taken Norco for an extended period of time without any physician discussing the possible risk of the Afib.
    Now, 6 months later no doctor has discussed this as a cause, is this a normal occurrence with doctor patient experience?

    I have had AS for 45 years+....Besides the pain levels, exhaustion and brain fog, I am now having cardiopulmonary symptoms (tightness in the chest, shoulders and neck, hard to breath and raspy breathing). Taking diuretics which helps, but not always. Dealing with heart fib...tightness of chest area, shoulders, neck. Blood Pressure cup shows heart fib mark when symptoms are bad which is way too often now. My body did not take to Rheumatrex or Humira, so I use Low Dose Naltrexone, Celecoxib and suppositories for pain, Brotekajin for stomach, Allegra for antihistamine, Furosemide (Lasix) to reduce edema, and Chiradin S (Levothyroxine sodium) for thyroid deficiency. I also take quite a bit of supplements.

    Do any of you know a way to relieve the cardiopulmonary symptoms?
