My mother had stage 4 pancreatic cancer, but died from a heart attack. I have always had heart palpitations since i was a teen. i was diagnosed with tachycardia years ago.
i dont have insurance, but i did have ekg a few times over the years. my heart has always come back normal. but its been a few years now.
the palpitations dont really cause my heart rate to spike, it stays in the 70s but i feel my heart skip beats, or accelerate a bit.
ever since my mother passed, when i get heart palpitations i start to panic, i feel faint, get heart burn, and start imagining pain in my arms.
the thing is that i get palpitations from coffee or overeating. overeating causes gives me heartburn. the faint feeling starts when i start breathing, as i read that it helps to make the palpitations to go away.
i used to get it and not care, but since my mother passed away, i feel like my stress is making the symptoms worse.
how can i know if i am truly having a heart attack? im only 33 but ive heard of people having it young, i am also overweight.
