For the last four years my health and fitness have drastically gone downhill. During any form of excitement, be it physical, watching a movie, or simply butterflies before a meeting, it feels like something is injected into my heart. The symptoms of this then give me what is classified as an irregular/ irregular heart beat. This normally subsides after a couple of days, but I am absolutely exhausted during this period. I have been to specialists who tell me that I have a healthy heart and the irregularity is nothing to worry about. The more that this happens the more I am losing my fitness. Three years ago I played a 36 hour badminton marathon. Now I can't even last five minutes without becoming overheated and exhausted. Doctors are suggesting beta blockers before I do anything remotely exciting, but I feel that there is something creating this feeling of a substance hitting the heart and knocking it out of sink. For a man of 46 I struggle to walk the dog more than a couple of miles, and it is getting worse on a monthly basis.
