Hey I'm 20 years old and have struggled with strange heart rythems. At first it would only happen with sports like football and basketball. It would start with quick cuts on the court or landing hard. My heart would feel off. It beats fast and it feels wonky. Like the top of my heart beats differently than the bottom of it. It also POUNDS. It beats really hard one time my mom described it as getting punched by my heart when she went to feel it. Also, it lasts about a minute or two. I went to the hospital about a month ago and they said NO EXCERCISE. So not excercising for a month, I tried to get back in shape because the DR is taking forever. I can't do anything. I can't play sports. I can't go for a run. This has caused me so much anxiett that my life feels over. I can't do what I love. I'm in constant fear that I'm going to die. What do I do? Oh and plus, I can pretty much control it. If I try to excercise, and I feel a couple weird beats, I immediately stop and focus on my breathing before my weird fast heart rate comes. When it happens I feel like I'm dying. Not sure if it's anxiety or not. Please help me. Sorry I'm all over the place, I'm just scared and frustrated. Will I ever be able to be me again?
