Dangerous? what is going on..
Alright so.. im 22, healthy male, don't smoke.. occasionally drink.. Heres the thing.. i had panic and anxiety disorder, so up until now I simply chalked my symptoms up to "oh it's all in your head" I get heart flutters from time to time..nothing major..as of late they have been more frequent.. I've always had a theory that when I get a flutter it changes the rhythm of my heart causing me to feel week and dizzy until it passes.
So yesterday, Im doing fine no anxiety.. laying in bed..then boom one heart flutter..somewhat later I begin feeling just fatigued exhausted etc.. I check my pulse and it's different then normal it's slow and a different beat.. around 60 bpm.. when it's typically 75-85. So now I'm getting nervous.. my mothers friend was a head nursing supervisor..but she is the type of person who loves misery.. she has a lot of healthy issues and always talking about them..So i take her with a grain of salt.. but she came down with her stethoscope and listened to my heart and said it was definitely abnormal she said it would beat slow..then speed up then go one real hard beat..and repeat.. So im really freaking out now.. She looked over some work I had done 7 years ago from a pediatric cardiologist and a few other specialists and apparently He noted I have a very slight murmur and splitting of the s2? Not quite sure what it means but he didnt chalk it up as dangerous.....but can it get worse? Am I at risk?
So here I am..7 years later..i've got two weeks to go before I get medical insurance again and can get checked out and my heart is all in these arrhythmia's... So it's like all those years it wasnt in my head? I'm kind of a nervous wreck here ... anyone else have these symptoms? A heart flutter and change of rythms making them feel tired and lightheaded? when it's usually a faster beat.. I'm afraid to take a klonopin for my anxiety because I dont want my heart to slow down anymore..and I dont want to pass out from this.. I want to go to the gym but now.. Im not so sure.... I know i've felt like this before but now after the lady TOLD me i have an arrhythmia when I thought it was all just in my head im real distraught ...
