Last fall 2020, I suddenly developed cardiac issues. Wild variations in BP and heart rate. Had an ablation in December 2020 which failed. Have been on high dose (800 mg day) Amiodarone to try to control high heart rate and had a Pacemaker inserted last month. Things haven’t changed, so the cardiologist wants to do an AV node ablation in mid January and make my heart 100% dependent on the pacer. We have discussed ALS and it’s effects on the heart, something about a nerve change from the brain to the heart. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon? Thank you!
