Im 25 y.o. with Skiped heart beats, tachycardia and other issues. Please help!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Im a 25 year old male and I feel like an old man. About 5 years ago I had my first episode or irregular heart beats, and since them I have skiped beats and palpitations that appear randomnly, regardless of activity. Even tho at times certain activities like excercice might trigger them, but most of the times ot doesnt.

During this period of 5 years, Ive had like 5 ekgs (not at the precise time of the symptoms), 3 holters for 24 hours and 2 echocardiograms. My cardiologist said my heart is normal and to avoid caffein and stress. However, this happens even when Im relaxed. I was on betablockers once for like 2 months but saw no difference so I stopped using them. I just kept living with them. But everytime I have a bad episode I get scared, afraid it might kill me.

Today Im writting this because I had a 5 minute long episode of tachycardia and fluttering. It scared me once again. To make matters worse, Im also dealing with a bad case of GERD for like 11 months now and I spent most time in locked in my bedroom because I dont feel well.

I would like to hear if other young people are going throught the same experience and if somebody has been able to stop this palpitations.

    Hi gad1711,

    GERD might be the cause, you haven't detailed your Eco therefore it is hard to answer. Anayway, this replay is to mention that some GERD medication is cross react with blood thinners, also some blood thinner is causing a palpitations, I am assuming you are on blood thinner, but if not just ignore all these. I guess all your symptoms due to GERD, so taking a medication can help, but improve the life styles and healthy program for long period will make a bigger change.

      Thanks for responding. I have never been on blood thinners. Should I?

      ECHO EF 69%

      Left ventricular systolic function is normal.

      Left ventricular wall motion is normal.

      The transmital spectral Doppler flow pattern is normal for age.

      There is trace mitral regurgitation.

      There is trace tricuspid regurgitation.

      Doppler Findings do not suggest pulmonary hypertension.
