I am 18 years old. I've always been pretty healthy, I have allergies, allergy induced asthma, and have had to go to the blood doctor quite a few times to fix an iron and B12 deficiency which I have figured out were because of a gluten sensitivity. As of today I am healthy except this odd thing! In the past year, I've had four separate instances that have freaked me out a little. Twice at school, one at work, and one when I was hanging out with my friends. It's where my heart suddenly goes to an extremely high rate.(I can still count the beats so I have never called an ambulance). Every time it has happened it's been when I sit down or stand up fast, and it goes back down within 10-15 minutes. I get shortness of breath and feel my heart POUNDING but that's about it. YOU CAN HEAR MY HEARTBEAT IN MY BREATH! My mom says anxiety but the times it has happened I was not feeling anxious. Went to a heart doctor after the first episode and he said it was just adrenaline and said my heart looked fine on a sonogram and EKG(sitting). I have thought maybe it was POTS but it has only happened on four very spread out occasions so I'm not sure. Plus I am usually fine when standing and sitting. Have never fainted. Someone HELP! Should I be worried?
