| | what to do now?
About 4 months ago, I had an episode (the first one) while in the shower. I started getting this "drop" feeling, like I was on a roller coaster. When I got out of the shower, my pulse rate was high, I was dizzy and fainted. My son ended up calling 911, the paramedics showed up. My heart rate was 186 and my blood pressure was up. By the time we got to the hospital I had passed out 3 more times. Once we arrived at the hospital by pulse / pressure were back down. I was at the hospital for about 3 hours, without any reoccurance, when out of the blue ...I felt it coming ....the same dropping feeling and everything began to happen just like it did earlier. I was sent home with a holter monitor to wear for 24 hours and told to see a cardiologist.
I had chest x-rays, ekg, ecg (differance??). The cardiologist said my heart was fine, not to worry.
Now, I continue to have this problem every month. It just so happens that I have it the week before my period starts and continue to have it for the first few days of my cycle.
I had it horrible yesterday. My boyfriend was with me and I was laying there and he was hugging me. When he noticed that I became very hot and that my heart beat was beating wildly and loudly. Yes, I started my period the day before.
I've had blood tests run, thyroid functions, etc. Today, I'm sitting here and my hear feels "heavy". Sometimes when I get it my arms start tingling hot but my hands are freezing.
