    Hi Paulette 1966

    I have not had any type of heart problem associated with my condition of "Vestibular Neuritis", but I was told by my ENT specialist that Labyrinthitis and Vestibular Neuritis upset our sensory impressions and therefor can cause a lot of problems associated with our feeling of well being.  Everything from hearing in the ear affected to our thinking processes, because it is such an important aspect of our daily routines.  We rely upon balance to affirm just about everything we do including sleep.  So, if your heart is known to be healthy, I would say it most likely is part of the whole issue.  I will tell you that my GP gave me a perscription of mild tranquilizers ( low dose Valium) to help me with anxiety.  

    That's about all I know.

    take care

      Hi,

      Yes, I foundsome relief from anxious moments with it, especially when I read about others having this problem for years instead of months, but not from the spinning.  Reading about others having vertigo symtoms for years depressed me and the Valium provided some escape from that feeling but not the dizzyness, and so I stopped taking it.  It was an experiment that my GP wanted to try after he had led me to believe that a simple Epley maneuver was going to cure the problem, found out that it infact did not, and it had dragged on for several weeks.  

      I also used Vertigo medicine called Meclizine ( some call it Antivert), but i did not find any relief using it.  Then the ENT put me through several tests that made noise in my ears while they recorded my eye movements and his prognosis was Meniere's and so prescribed Lipofalvinoid.  

      I had a second opinion and they have decided I have damage to my inner ear nerve called Vestibular neuritis, caused by a virus or  bacterial infection, but they did not prescribe any drug for it, instead they prescribed physical therapy, which I will explain in a later post I just received the prescription and need to familierize myself with it and then I will reveal it for all to see and hopefully it will be worthwhile and help all who want to try it.

      OK?

    Hi

    Since last week for some reason I've been having palpitations.  I went to urgent care and dr did an EKG everything fine. I already take blood pressure medication ( propranolol ) and cymbalta for depression / anxiety. Dr said I just need to relax and not stress out. But it wakes me up at night and I worry. It just happens .  My blood pressure is alittle high ..for me. 135/87 it won't drop lower.

      Hi Lilly,

      I am not a doctor, but my personal experience with heart palpitations is from nerviousness or caffeine.  Of course chocolate and tea can provide the substance that creates the stress factors needed to cause your heart to feel like it skipping beats, but if you had an ekg and they found nothing abnormal I would suggest sleep and total refrain from anything that might cause a reaction like caffeine does.  Try to stop worrying and see if you can't use a yoga type mind over matter approach to calm the feeling.

      That's all I have.  I hope you feel better soon.

      Thank you Ben. I have the tendency to fixate on things. If I feel a tad bit weird , right away my mind starts running ...all negative. Something's wrong , why am I feeling like this , my heart , etc. I need to learn how to change my thinking. Right now I took my blood pressure and it was 142/86. That's enough to make me worry ...more. 3 years I've been dealing with swaying motion. It's been hard for me to go out , just sitting talking I would feel that swaying motion. Headaches like you wouldn't believe. Neck and shoulder pain, wake up with a headache and feel tired all day like I didn't sleep. But to be honest , I know I just started taking cymbalta and it takes a few weeks to kick in , but I have not felt that swaying motion or ugly headaches , neck or shoulder pain anymore ...thank God. Maybe it is me ...my thinking. But this past week is when I started feeling the fast heart rate ...didn't before. I know it's not the cymbalta because I felt like that before I started taking it.

      How long have you been on the Propranolol?  These are the listed severe side effects, "Severe side effects of Inderal (generic Propranolol) may include slow and irregular heartbeat, hypotension, chest pain, short of breath, bleeding, swelling of hands or feet, bronchospasm, and glaucoma."

      I also have been diagnosed with vestibular neuritis and never have exxperienced palpitations.  I did have some when I was taking Losartan for BP.  Cut my dose in half and they went away.  Took it 6 months before the palpitations started.

      Hi there. I've been on propanolol for 4 months.  Thank God I have not experienced any of those side effects. I had an EKG done last week and it was normal. I had a chest X-ray done 2 days ago...waiting for results from dr.    I also had blood work done yesterday and also going to have echocardiogram done. I don't know why my heart beats fast for no reason and it's everyday ...I feel gittery at times
