Re: What Does a Heart Flutter Feel like
Hey, i am 20 years old and i have had irregular periods ever since i started it when i was 13..there has been times when i would go 3-4-5-6 months with out a periods, but when it would come it would be heavy, with light clots, ive never really had cramping so severe, and im happy about that, but jus recently i got my periods and it started out really light for about 4-5 days, but then it started to get heavier with small clots, for about a week, and then here came the huge clots, it was so sick, that lasted for about a week too, && while this was all goiing on, i was having heart flutters, and it would scare me to death, i thought i was having a heart attack, so i went into the ER and they hooked me up to a EKG and said my heart rate was normal, so that made me feel a little bit better, but then as soon as it would flutter again i would get so scared, so i went in to see my family doctor and i told her about the fluttering sensations , she wanted me to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours, so thats what i did, but for bad news there was something wrong with the heart monitor and now i have to re-take it, but im not experiencing the fluttering anymore, every once in a great while my heart kinda feels like its beating differently, but i just take it as nothing to worry about, seems the EKG came back normal, so then i went to see my family doctor again for my periods, she wanted to draw my blood, to check my hormones, and everything came back normal besides my humagloban was a little low, so she wants me to take a multi-vitamin once a day, so thats what i have been doiing, she also put me on some axiety medicine, where i take a half of pill 2 times a day, i think that is what stopped my heart palpations from coming so frequent but im not for sure, i still wanna re-take the monitor just to be on the safe side...she also told me to stay away from caffiene, coffee, chocolate, and go on a strict healthy balanced diet, and excersice a lot more, so i started out walking 2-3 times a day for about 20-30 minutes each, and i think that helped me out too, so maybe you should try some of these things, and i hope you found out the problem to why you are getting these flutters too, if you know any kind of information about this..plz let me know. Thanks.
