Hi, I am a 74 year old very active female. I had rumantic fever as a child and have had some problems with heart beat, such as tacacardia(sp) took verapamil for it when ever it would flare up. Now my problem is: my heart skips beats, it will beat two time then stop then beat maybe 3 times and then maybe 11, there is no rhyme or reason to the beat, It changes all the time.
I think I am low on potassium but taking larger amounts dosen't seem to help.
I would like to treat this myself with vitamins and herbs if at all possible. I think the potassium will help but I don't know just how much to take. I have read that adults should take about 2000mg a day but haven't taken that much yet. The bottle say they are only 99 mg, so I would have to take a lot of capsuls to get the large amount.
Please can someone help me??
