| | Heart Problems?
Well my question is this and not a lot of people have this condition but maybe someone will see this and relate and have some answers. I have been having heart problems for about a year, I will wake up in the middle of the night and my heart will be racing, of course I have freaked out a couple times and called the paramedics. When they arrive and hook me up, my HR fluctuates between 130's-180's and sometimes bounce up for a few seconds to 200+bpm. When i arrive to the hospital they will give me Lopresser and my ekg indicates normal sinus tach. This just seems really high to me. I have been ablated for SVT's that I used to have but the Sinus Tach. continues to be a daily problem even at rest or waking me up out of my sleep. My condition in increasingly worse with alcohol consumption, and meaning one glass of wine will send me into an episode. They have never done an echo. except for with my ablation obviously to perform the procedure, no cardiac MRI's or any other imaging has been done. Could there be something else that they are missing? I have minor chest pain day to day, and i used to be able to exercise but now it is so difficult, I go well over my target heart rate very quickly, I become short of breath and get dizzy and have to stop, also having a flip-flopping sensation in my chest after a workout while Im cooling down. I am 28 years old, 5'4", 140lbs, have had 3 kids. i just don't get this.
