Just got back from the hospital. I saw a specialist about my irregular heart beat which is something I have probably had all my life but was only spotted when I was 21 when I failed the physical to try out for the Royal Marines.

It hasnt bothered me I have done a fair bit of sport over the last 23 years Rugby, Cricket, sailing, Fell walking and lots and lots of cycling. However the last year or so I have noticed it is getting worse sometimes in bed I can feel my heart beating fast.

Finally got to see the specialist and had lots of tests. They have put me on Beta Blockers to try and calm things down, if it doesnt work they are talking about a pace maker :shock:

Has anyone got any experience of cycling and taking Beta Blockers and has some tips on how to best manage my medication.
