  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • I have had missed beats and palpitations for 40 years and the doctors say there is nothing wrong with my heart. Echo gram shows slightly enlarged atrium. Symptoms are worse when lying down and often keep me awake at night. During the day I don't notice them as much but they start to be noticeable in the late afternoon. As the night wears on they decrease and are not there in the morning.I take all the above drugs at different times of the day and the vitamins in the morning.


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Shows up on bone scan but no symptoms yet
