What was it like before you came to see us?
I have suffered from a lot of heart problems throughout my life and have always been told there’s nothing anyone can do for me. I’m very active in sports and the past few years I had trouble with fatigue, rapid heart rate, dizziness and faintness while participating in sports. It was very discouraging to me because I had always been so active and it had become extremely difficult for me to be as athletic as I had once been.
How is it now?
Over the past few months I have watched my heart rate decrease at the gym from approximately my usual 180 to a consistent 165. It’s made a substantial difference. I don’t get nearly as fatigued and it feels like I can still breathe. I also played tennis recently and noticed a huge difference; I didn’t get lightheaded while serving and I was able to sprint to shots that I wouldn’t have been able to in the past few years. I didn’t feel my heart pounding in my chest which had also been happening consistently during sports over the past last few years. This success story was shared with us by Kara K. on 3/20/2013.
