Re: Getting to the hospital
In my case, I have learned that when my heart is not beating correctly, I need to avoid any further stimulus, stress or irritation to my heart. I have worn several 24 hours holter monitors, during which time I experimented quite a bit with things that I knew irritated my heart.
I learned that, in my case, when my heart was beating a little irregularly, most of the irregular beats would be above the ventricles (Supra-ventricular). The more that I "irritated" or stressed my heart, the more that the misfiring would occur lower in my heart, down in the ventricles; and the more erratic the beat. At that time, my symptoms would get worse, including more difficult breathing, feeling faint and lightheaded, sweating, feeling weak, etc. So...... now when I feel my heart jumping around and/or misfiring, I avoid anything that would cause further irritation.
