Heart palpitations getting bad

Posted , 2 users are following.


First some history, I have EDS, ME, CRPS.

The last few months I have been getting heart palpitations. At first just one now and then and then increasing to between 10-30 a day. They are a big pause like my heart has stopped which takes my breath away and then a big thump, it lasts a second or two. I had an ecg 6days ago but didn't catch any of them on it. The last 4 days I have been feeling awful. If I lie down and don't move or talk or anything they are only every half hour or so but if I am trying to do something they are every few minutes and cause a pain in my chest and make me feel breathless and dizzy. I'm supposed to go for blood tests but I've been feeling too ill to go. I don't feel ill enough to call an ambulance or go to hospital but I definitely feel something is not right.
