Re: Heart Palps...SCARY! Need some reassurance
The first time I got a heart palp, I was out shopping. It was awful. I had to leave the store and get home. I didn't have any pain either. I also got a bit dizzy and nauseous and very warm - (maybe a hot flash?).
I'm 48 and began my peri-sypmtoms about 2 years ago. I haven't had a heart palp since last winter - I remeber because I had a heavy winter coat on in the store, and had to remove it quickly, or I thought I would pass out. Ever since, I always took my coat off while shopping - then over the spring and summer - no coat - no heart palps, so I wonder if I was getting too warm/ or having a hot flash and over heating? Winter just started again, so I wonder if I'll start them again?
Over the warm summer months, I didn't get the palps or hot flashes - hard to figure this out sometimes.
Hope this helps,
PS - I did get an EKG last August, so I know my heart's OK.
