I've always had the same problem. I have a combination of heart disease and allergies. When I come into contact with an allergen or irritant, it not only gets my heart jumping around, skipping beats, and beating faster, it also can raise my blood pressure, stuff up my nose, and bring on breathing difficulties (Asthma).
Because of my weak heart, and valve problems, lying down is always a problem, whether on back, left side or right side, but when lying down in bed I suffer the worst symptoms of all.
The bed is the WORST place for allergies, so I figure that when I lie down in bed, the allergens, dust, dust mites, etc., are the cause of my worsening heart-beat symptoms.
Just some things for you to think about.
May you have an enjoyable Thanksgiving!
