Hi, im new to this site and have been having some heart related issues and was just seeing if anybody experienced similar problems or has had a diagnosis. any reply's or information would be greatly appreciated heres some info about me before i explain my problem.
Male 33, tall, slim build, fairly good diet, general anxiety disorder, reasonably active.
For four years ive had what i now know are eptopic beats, in the last year these have became more frequent and i am now alot more aware of them. i have recently had a 24 hour monitor and my cardiologist stated nothing to worry about except a few ectopics and low blood pressure , explained that i am always feeling dizzy and have chest pains but she thought these are unrelated and put down to anxiety. she had me wear a 7day monitor to rule out heart failure ect and then sent me on my way. (This is where things get a bit more interesting and confusing) one night i decided to test something as ive noticed a bit of a pattern with the ectopics, so while i was seated in a calm state i decided to take my pulse which was averaging around 55-60bpm, i then(slowly) stood up while still checking my pulse and noticed it instantly jumped to around 120-140bmp and was very faint at times and would sometimes start to slow then speed up again, i then proceeded to sit again(slowly) and noticed it jumped strait back to 55-60 and then right on cue a ectopic beat. The following day i decided to pay the local GP a visit and upon him investigating and testing this concern he came to the conclusion that i have a electrical problem with my heart, or wiring as he stated so im now at this point where im looking into similar symptoms and im getting things like POTS, inappropriate tachycardia,a-fib, supra ven tachycardia ect ect coming up so id just like to know from somebody elses views/opinion or experiences regarding my issue , again any replays are greatly appreciated
ps couple of other mentions, my heart rate can shout back down to 55-60 when i am standing but leaning over, ie leaning on a counter ect this normally also causes ectopics along with just laying down.
