So just under 4 years ago I was sat playing on my Xbox when I experienced my first ever chest pain. Obviously I felt nothing of it. I visited the doctors who told me first it was stress or a torn muscle. I then went back after a couple months because I was still getting these pains, I was sent to the hospital to have an ECG done to give me peace of mind In which it came back and my doctor said there was a slight LVH. She said it would go and there was nothing to worry about. I eventually returned to the doctors and I was sent to see a cardiologist who did an ECG on me there at the hospital and I had a chest x-ray. Nothing was found. All normal. Last year I started to get this funny feeling, which felt like a palpitation (I know now that it was ectopic beats) I went back the doctors again and this time I saw a different doctor, I had a 2 week ECG fitted on. When the results came back for that she said there was some SVT on the ECG as well as ectopic beats. I was then referred me to a different cardiologist. I had another ECG done, I had an ultra sound of the heart and I had a urine test. Everything came back fine and they weren’t worried but they saw that I was getting ectopic beats. I told them I was getting them daily and I still am to this point of which you’re reading. I have also told them that a few times when I have laid down or jumped on my bed something triggered my heart and it started to rapidly beat. They blame it all on anxiety and stress and saying there was too much pressure on my chest when I breath in. Yes my diet isn’t really good atm. Takeaways nearly every day but I am 5”8. 9 stone 4 so it’s not as if I’m fat. Also recently I have been experiencing pressure on my chest when I lay down, for this I have to take deep breaths. I don’t know if this is all in my head or if I should go back! It’s really frustrating especially when I just want to get on with a normal life
