Graph of my heat beats

Posted , 5 users are following.

During my walk, my Fitbit caught a graph that seems very interesting to me. I don't know if I need to consult my doctor to interpret it for me. Can someone explain what this graph means?

      Yes, I have a history of skipping beats. Lately, I noticed a few of these. In the past when I had loop monitor on they were able to find it. They did not say it was anything worrisome. I personally never saw a graph like that and this is why I did not know what that means. I am confused if I need to go to my doctor immediately.

      My doctor will come to his office end of the week. I will go to him then. Please advise how you deal with the skipped beats. Yesterday I had a slight passing out symptoms and then my heart raised a bit. That made me think I had skipped beats.

      I went to see my doctor today and showed him two graphs on my Fitbit (the one I posted here earlier and a recent one). His reaction was " I don't know what you are showing me, I don't know what it is and I don't know what it means". He did not seem interested to talk about it at all. 

      Thanks

    Do NOT worry too much about what the fitbit is saying about your heartbeat. I have a Fitbit and said something about it the last time I went to the E.R and they literally laughed at me and asked me if I checked my heart rate with anything else. Apparently it isn't exactly the most accurate device to judge if you are having any problems or not, go figure LOL. You need to go by how you are feeling more than what you are seeing, if you are feeling like your heart is beating too fast or you can feel skipped beats, talk to your doctor about that and about getting a holter monitor or something that is meant to measure heartbeat properly. There are times my Fitbit says I was dead...flat out dead...no heartbeat or breathing or anything, also it has registered me asleep when I was wide awake doing things and not counted sleep I know I got, so try not to let it freak you out too much. Unless you are feeling like you need to run to the hospital, I think you will be okay to wait and address these concerns with your regular primary doc at a regular visit and do yourself a favor and stop reading the Fitbit until then. I have stopped looking at mine pretty much at all except to count my steps, because my anxiety causes me to focus on all the other what ifs. Good luck!!!

      I tally agree with you and this is why I am taking my time to go to the doctor. Sometimes my Fitbit starts to celebrate 10, 000 steps although I am sitting and doing nothing. However, I still like to wear my Fitbit to encourage me to get my 10, 000 steps on each day. It is true that we can not rely on this device for any clinical decision. 

       I was on Holter monitor about 6/7 months ago because sometimes I feel like skipping beats and I go on passing out stage. The Holter monitor detected that I have premature beats and skipping beats. My doctor said I don't need to be treated for skipping beats because monitor did not find any abnormal rhythm. It is true I experience it once in a while, not on a regular basis. I notice it more when I am about to fall asleep.

      I just don't know how to deal with this skipping beats. Is there anything I can do so my heart does not skip beats?

      I have skipped beats, flutters, palpitations, or whatever you want to call them all the time. But I get them when trying to go to sleep too. Yesterday I had one that felt like when a transmission is going out your car and it goes into gear really rough, THUD!!! It wasn't a nice feeling and I thought my heart was going to stop for sure that time, but I'm still here, made it through another night. I have never been told they caught anything on any of the times I wore a holter or event monitor. They've always said I'm fine and they found nothing but I still feel this way. I have been told that it is all my anxiety and once I get that under control I shouldn't notice it as much. Well over 20 years later, I beg to differ. I think there is medication you can take but I'm not sure since you don't actually have any abnormal rhythm.

      We are on the same page. I  was told same by the family physician that I have stress. He thinks, my high level of stress causing issues with my heart. About two years ago I had H-pylori bacteria in my stomach. My family doctor did not do much for a long time. When I had the pain for so long he sent me for a scope and it showed that I had a bacteria. 

      That pain was so severe I thought that I had a serious health issue. From that pain, I started getting premature beats. I never had heart issues before that.  I think, I just have to deal with it. Somedays I am fine and some days it makes me so worried. 

       Most of the time I am okay with my activities.  I become stressed when I feel sick due to these issues.Yesterday I was about to fall asleep and then I noticed my head was going to shut down. Soon after that, my heart started beating a little faster. I try not to worry about it and sometimes I forget all about it but when I get the symptoms I become helpless. What do you do to make your mind distracted? Maybe not medication but I think I need help to combat this issue.
