Hey ladies. For the past couple days feels like my heart is racing, I am very tired...unusually sleepy and I feel like I can't get a deep breath. Anybody else had this? Peri?

    Oh yes I had this and still have slightly. I've learnt to accept it plus hrt has helped this slightly. I was always trying to get a deep breath,it was the one thing I hated because it made me think about my breathing pattern which got into a bad habit. Try to ignore it. I know harder said than done. It will get easier x

    yes yes yes..it's scary but try to relax and foucus on something else . When this happens to me first to get the heart rate (pals) I foucus on something else like call a friend play an online game. Then with breathing I breath through my nose until lungs are full then I hold breath  to  count of maybe 7 then I slowly exhale through mouth I repeat that a few times for one its relaxing and for two it gives your organs more oxygen. If you havent eaten in a while grab something with a little carbs and protien like a peanutbutter cracker hormones can and at times drops blood sugar. These are things that help me. Now as far as that drop head tiredness i either ride it through or just go take a little nap. Some months are worse than others on that terrible tirness where you can hardly hold your head up.

    Have your heart checked. I was doing the same as you and I was diagnosed with Afib.
