Hi I'm Melissa im female and 26, Thanks for reading.
I don't smoke or drink or take anything that could set this off.
About two weeks ago I woke up to my heart going crazy, it felt like it was jumping all over the place and skipping beats. It kept doing this and it would last an hour or more and it was made worse if I sat down or tried to lay down.
I went to hospital twice and the second time they kept me in and did tests and everthing keeps coming back normal. I am getting a 24 hour monitor fitted soon to track my heart rate.
Two weeks on and I still have the flutters. The episodes don't last as long but now its triggered by movement. So when I first sit down, stand up, lean forward ect my heart goes crazy fluttering and i feel i lose my breath slightly then its normal again. I have a weird tickly feeling in my throat on my right side and that seems to be where the most fluttering comes from, I can also feel it in the right side of my back.
I have been put on Beta Blockers.
I am just so scared by this all, I have never experienced this in my life. Everyday I have been crying about it. Just earlier I went a morning without feeling much then I bent down to pick up a pan in the lower cuboard and my heart did its crazy fluttering again and now when I move it keeps coming.
No one seems that worried but im terrified by this. i just want to be normal again like I was a couple of weeks ago. I can't even lay in bed without it going crazy at first.
I'm sorry for the long message, I would just love some advice, I feel very alone in this and afraid its something new I have to deal with for life.
