Comment from: Rwmson, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: August 17

I was diagnosed with ARVD/C (arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy) along with long, or extended QT syndrome. I have an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator), that is both a pacemaker and defibrillator. I'm also on beta blockers.

I had tachycardia along with irregular heart beats. I had an ablation that worked for about a month, but the irregular beats came back and so did the tachycardia. I also experience some chest pain with this.

I have sinus arrhythmia and I don't know taking amiodarone for 6 months will treat this illness. I am planning to exercise daily.
