Re: rapid heart beat while laying down and low blood pressure
I appologize for the lack of detail in my last post. I am 36 yrs old and I do have past medical issues that may contribute to some of the stuff going on, this very well is true. I did make an appointment and went this morning and he did suggest all the test you just mentioned. He put as a diagnosis palpatations, He is aware of all my medical history such as a hysterectomy at 27, partial thyroid ectomy, 5 yrs ago, and I stated that I thought maybe it was hormonal, and he thought a possibility but because of heart issue that run in my family and my symptoms he felt it necessary to do the halter monitor, ekg, nuclear stress and carotids. My blood pressure as a rule has always been a little on the low side but has gotten better over the last few years and never as low as lately while laying down. I am typically 115/68 120/180 any where in that range, but during these episodes my pressure drops to 72/55 84/56. my heart rate is anywhere between 110-140's I become really shakey and weak after these episodes, and genrally feel off and wiped out. I thank you for the time to respond, it is nice to know that other people have similar symptoms and can sometimes make you feel better about the whole situation.
