Help heart worries urgent!!!

Posted , 7 users are following.

So today I had to have the paramedics as my heart rate suddenly shot up to 140bpm I had only picked up my daughter, when they arrived they told me to calm down and hooked me up to the ecg machine, when they tested it was at 133bpm but regular. They screwed up the ecg and my partner threw it away, they said I had a panic attack and they can just come out of the blue like mine did. I have been and got the ecg out of the bin and it says abnormal ecg unconfirmed possible ventricular hypertrophy inferior ST abnormality probably due. It's sent me over the edge I'm so scared why did they throw it away if it was abnormal there's got to be something wrong with me!! Please help me it's ruining my life!

    If they screwed up then it was probably done wrong. If it's really freaking you out take the EKG to your PCP and ask. Ask if they can redo one. I've had 4 EKG's done this year and all were fine. I've been to the cardiologist and found nothing. They reassured me I am fine. But anxiety is a monster and won't let go of you. I still fear I have something wrong with me. What helps me is to go out in nature and get my mind off off things.

    I would call them . It may have been one they took while you were moving around and those get all kinds,of off readings.

    Did they take two, if so they probably took the normal one with them.

    When I had my first anxiety attack 3 weeks ago my bp was 161/103 pulse over 100. Just do some breathing exercises and close your eyes and try meditation

    Take it to your doctor. Remember big words can be used for nothing and this may be the case. Maybe it said something that basically meant panic attack. Just go to the doctor and put your mind at ease x

    I have had 3 full-blown panic attacks and each time they told me my EKG was normal. Anxiety is unfortunately part of this crap. But if you are really worried go to a cardiologist

    Hi everyone I just received a call back from a doctor who asked me about my ECG and said the main thing on there is sinus tachycardia as my heart was going fast and it was normal and to forget about everything else as the leads could have been placed wrong and sometimes they kick rubbish out. He said its my anxiety that's causing this as I get some skipped beats then subconsciously panic and my heart rate rockets. I'm seeing a hypnotherapist tomorrow and private cardiologist Tuesday, I just need to know my heart is definitely in good health maybe have an echo and go from there. This anxiety really is crippling I just want to stay in bed all day and not exert myself sad

      It really is awful!! I was just picking my daughter up and my heart went irregular then shot up to 140bpm the paramedics treat me for panic attack, as my heart rate came down when I relaxed. I am seeing a cardiologist on Tuesday I am currently writing a list of all the questions I need answering. As for feeling your heart skipping a beat or two these are called ectopic heart beats and are usually benign and can originate from anxiety and stress.
