Re: Heart rate/rythm during exercise
8 weeks? What tests are you going to do?
You must live in Canada or somewhere with nationalized health care. I saw my cardiologist the day after my initial "episode" and had all tests done within a few days. Must be stressful having to wait so long!
Anyways, I have had similar episodes as you. Heart race/palpitations/light headed. The light headed is probably your blood pressure dropping. When that happens you can lie down or bend over. Lying down takes virtually no blood pressure.
Drink plenty of water. As in, 2 liters a day. As long as your doc says it was okay, I would go on walks. Nothing strenuous - but keep the blood moving - you don't want things to get worse.
To keep you occupied? Watch tv, play computer games, read, go to the movies, that's all up to you!
