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.
