Is anyone else super aware of their heart? Like I feel it ALL the time, I feel every flutter, every skipped beat, every extra soft or extra hard beat, I feel it all the time. It feels like it could jump out of my chest at any moment! When I lay on my left side, it starts going crazy, it feels like I'm squishing it, or putting too much pressure on it. It's really annoying in bed (either trying to go to sleep, or having 'adult time' with my husband!
Also, I had my worst 'attack' to date about a week ago. My heart rate spiked to 249bpm with ZERO warning (I can usually feel the flutter or weird shortness of breath I get right before one starts) and stayed between that and 227bpm (when I got to the hospital) for over 40 mins. They are definitely getting stronger and more frequent! Ever since then, I've been feel so incredibly weak and out of breath. I always have those kind of lingering effects, but they usually go away after a couple of days, but they are really persistent this time. My chest still hurts, it still feels like someone has their hand around my heart and squeezing randomly.
I do have other health issues, I have 4 compression fractures in my spine, fibromyalgia and arthritis EVERYWHERE, so I'm not sure if that, combined with the fact that this one was so tough on me, is the reason it's taking so long to recover. Either way, I'm so over this!
