I am sooooo scared..........I am 29 years old female with no previous heart problems ever.
But during my last pregnancy I developed severe palpitations (about 20 per minute) all day and night. had a n echocardiogram done - fine, ECG just showed the palpitations bur no other abnormalities. The cardiologist diagnosied benign premature ventricular contractions. But I the started to get near fainting episodes maybe every day and then none for a week or so. No particular pattern just wham and that would be it. At first this was attributed to a vasavagal response......then anemia. As soon as the baby was born (he is now 7 weeks old) they said that the palpitations would go and the near fainty episodes, well the palp's have almost disappeared but not the near fainting episodes. I ahve become sooo scared that I do not leave the house by myself etc etc. i went to the GP today and I felt pretty dizzy whilst there and my pulse was irratic and dropped to around 50 - then I got really scared naerly had a panic attack and my pulse came up to 120. She is wondering if I am getting bradycardia ..........ahhhhhhhhhh.............am i not far to young for that problem?????? I am sooooo scared...I do not want to die....what makes it worse is I read that if thats the case you may have to get a pacemaker!!!!!!!!!!!! Please help me.reasure me.....any one else got this???????
