How are arrhythmias treated?

Treatment depends on the type and seriousness of your arrhythmia. Some people with arrhythmias require no treatment. For others, treatments can include medication, making lifestyle changes, and undergoing surgical procedures.

I just took this electromyography (EMG) test and at first I was shocked. I was startled by how much it affected my hand movement. After a few minutes I just relaxed and it was not that bad. I can see why they can't tell you what to expect because it is different for each person. If you can't relax and you tense up instead, it is a lot worse, at least it was for me.

You know it's funny, many heart doctors because of some of our ages throw everything off as anxiety. At the age of 18 I was diagnosed with arrhythmia after many attempts of talking to the doctor and they told me it was anxiety; until it was eventually caught in the error on ECG. Nothing makes me more mad than a doctor who writes everything off as anxiety, it's like we are just guinea pigs and if our heart is fine on their 1 minute ECG test than everything is good. Well, I'm sorry to say I'm not a heart doctor and know this is not the case. At our age we shouldn't have to keel over because of a stroke or heart attack because these doctors overlook something due to our age. I had a heart ablation in January of this year which has gave me my life back. Unfortunately now in June I am very short of breath most days and have weird sensations while sleeping that wake me up.

In my case I washed my private parts twice a day and kept it as dry as possible. I also apply anti-fungal ointment twice a day. It helps to improve the jock itch a lot.
