I have had arrhythmia which was diagnosed when I was 26 weeks pregnant with my second child. I had the ablation when she was one month old. Everything has been alright untill this past Monday. I had another arithmia and now I have been short of breath even when I am just sitting still. I have a wrist blood pressure machine and I did it about 5 times and got a high pulse from 114 at one time to 146 and a low blood pressure of 80 over 80 and 70 over 80.
What should I do?

From what I have read although small there is a risk of the arrythmia returning.
"For most patients, this treatment means increased odds of a healthier heart. "There is less than a 5 percent chance of recurrence of arrhythmia for patients using this procedure," says Dr. Mitrani. "It is an overall successful procedure used in cases of complex arrhythmia."
I would suggest contacting your physician immediatly.
