I have 2 stents and the stents should not cause such a problem. When did have them implanted?
Neausa and heart racing can be caused by blockages. With you have 2 stents maybe they are forming some scar tissue. It could also just be anxiety, sometimes having a bad dream that has happened to me with stress. When this happens after you wake up how long does it take for the symtoms to disappear? If they disappear with in minutes of waking up I would say anxiety. Do you have these symtoms any other time in the day walking around or doing physical work?
