Hi my name is claudia and I am 32 year old female. I also have the same problems as you.It is very scary isn't it:especially when you have children..My problems are definately from the heat also humididity causes tachacrdia for me also.......It seems like your all alone when it happens I am not on meds yet BUT i WILL BE SOON
because I can't stand it......I am off sugar also and I only drink one cup a day of coffee but I will have to give up that also...I would love to set up a chat with you sometime.it's easier for me to talk to people who understand thanks claudia enright Your situation sounds all too familiar. It is nice to know that I am in good company. I, too, was first diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse and tachacardia. Went on a beta blocker to control terrible symptoms, i.e. chest pain, numbing/tingling in left arm, shortness of breath, palpitations, excessive rapid heart beat, dizziness & nausea.
My first tachacardia episode was brought on by dehydration due to a virus. Prior to this I had no problems. I was able to eat and drink whatever I wanted. After about six months I thought I was doing okay so I went off the medication. Then, one day decided to have a piece of chocolate that sent me into major tachacardia. After another 911/emergency room visit I went home and began my med again. Now with a different insurance carrier, I had to go through all of the tests again and was now told that I didn't have mitral valve prolapse (even though I have a slight murmer) - I was told that I had experiences PSVT's and that I may want to consider ablation procedure. The thing that I noticed now is that I am ultra sensitive to sugar-containing foods! After my first episode I could still engage in sugar foods, but now I can't at all! One cookie is all I can handle. A piece of pie or cake or a glass of fruit juice makes me feel nauseated - my heart rate increases quickly and rapidly. Does anyone else out there have this problem with sugar? Feedback would be much appreciated. And, has anyone else's episodes caused them to become more symptomatic with each given one? I'm 34 years old - female. Thanks.
