Default Pulse Rate Constantly at around 135 bpm

My father in law for the last 2 or so weeks has had his pulse at around 135 bpm. He had gone in to get checked by the doctor and they said he had some sort of arrhythmia, and they had to shock his heart and it got it back to a normal rhythm. Anyway....since around that time he has had a fast pulse...around 135. His blood pressure is high as a result as well and he can't sleep because of it.



He's always had insomnia, but this is worse now. He's on blood pressure medicine.

Anyway....what could help? Could it be a magnesium deficiency?

he went back to the doctor yesterday. they said his heart went back out of normal rhythm. So they are going to shock his heart again (in about a week) to try and get it back to normal.

Before they do that, they gave him some blood thinners. they think something may be blocking something and perhaps that is why his heart is beating too fast...to compensate because each beat is not delivering what it normally can deliver.

I would not try to dink with this with alternative treatment alone.
Sounds like he has an electrical problem and the docs can be very good with this type of problem... maybe he needs a pacemaker?

taking magnesium wil not hurt him. the vast majority of people are deficient.

meanwhile he should be taking lots of vitamin c, niacin
have them check to make sure his arteries are clear with a carotid sonogram.. you want to rule out any other factors that contribute to stress and deal with them as soon as possible.

is his elevated bp from vascular disease or kidney/adrenal? it would be good to know.. then you better know how to addess it.

he just got back from the doctor today.
they shocked his heart back into rhythm and at a normal bpm.
they had him taking blood thinners before this procedure because they said his blood was too thick.
they checked his arteries...there was no blockage...nor was there any blockage in his neck arteries.

i believe his fast heartbeats were from improper beating. the heart wasn't getting alot done with each beat...so that is why I believe it was going faster all the time.

Hmm. Arrowind is right, cardiologists are pretty good with this. They probably put him on a beta blocker.
