Hi in 2014 I had three attacks of fast heart rate is was sent to hospital and given a heart ultrasound which showed everything to be OK the attacks was short lived and so in the end was put down to panic attacks I got given a holter months later which came back fine ..
Now I had on and off heart racing episodes since then and put them down to panic attacks I have anxiety so it made sence I had a baby 8 weeks ago after having him I realised my heart rate was low 56bpm and had a few palps so later that day I got a ecg was told it's normal if I get more palps go to doctors and ask for a holter monitor still heart rate was low but I put it down to just giving birth and then a week after giving birth I got very weak and severe dizziness I felt like I had the flu for a while 5 weeks ! I went to hospital who said everything was OK and I could go home I went home but was getting palps while standing so I put it down to anxiety until I woke up unable to breathe my body was numb and my heart was going what felt wrong it lasted like probably 5 minutes but felt like hours my heart was still palpations just not as bad so I took my heart rate and bp and both was high my heart rate was 144 ! I got dressed went out to my mums very out of breathe and still palps I took my pulse it was 146 I rang 111 who said go to a&e I got there and it was flucating from 115 -145-179 ! I had a ecg which said abnormal but they said it was fine I was later discharged with blood work and ecg normal .
When I went home I realised my heart rate was fast upon standing and everytime I stand now I have a fast heart sitting is OK but a soon as I stand walk or anything my heart rate is anywhere from 115 -160!
I have to still go about like normal and wait until Tuesday where I see a private cardiologist but I'm so anxiouse I won't make it until then
