Re: heart problems? please help
I was in the same boat. PVC's and aches here and there. Freaked me out. I would start to sweat like a pig, get all stressed more, heart thumping.
Had all the tests, even trips to Emergency room checking for heart attacks. Echo showed good sound heart, flow and valves working fine. (and here I thought I was about to die with some heart that MUST be stuffed.) I thought the worst, every test thinking they gotta find something bad, they must with what I am currently experiencing. My constant thoughts were, OH NO open heart surgery for sure......
And for allot of people that is the key issue. What goes on in your head. I would stress so much about impending doom that it would cause my heart to beat like some heavy metal rock band doing guitar rips.
Best to see your GP, and get a referral to a Cardiologist. They really are the only ones who can check you out and give you some answers.
All my tests spanned a period of 2 months. And in the end I am still here and diagnosed with harmless Ectopic beats, PVC's etc.
Funny enough, since getting my stress under control and doing my best to stop worrying about my heart and health (which is hard) all my issues and symptoms have stopped by about 90%.
Ectopic beats, PVC's, PAC's etc. are made a million times worse when you stress and you start thinking about how your heart is beating inside. It actually can turn into hours, days, week, and even months or irregular beats, until you stop stressing about it.
Gas, reflux can also cause the symptoms you describe. And No, you don't have to have the classic reflux symptoms in order to have reflux. Gas can cause sharp pains in the chest, then because of the pressure, can give you a heavy pressure feeling on the chest.
Try some over the counter Zantac, maybe even try a tea spoon of apple cider vinegar in some water when you first feel this all coming on.
