Hi folks. So, well, basically I've had heart palps for years now. And it was just something I had. Nothing major and I just went with the flow, so to speak. But......last November....it was a biggie. I thought I was on my way to a heart attack. Pounding chest, chest pain, felt ill, was awful. Other half was with me at the time and dialled 999. Rate was 197. Not as much as some have I know, but enough! Paramedics got me in ambulance and tried to get it down. Blowing in a syringe etc. Having a crash team waiting at hospital just scares the s**t out of you. Anyway, the doctors tried to get my heartbeat down naturally, neck movements too, no success. So I had to have the drug. Can't remember what it's called. Thankfully it worked. My loved ones with me watched that monitor, go from nearly 200 to under 90 in an instant. They were happy.......I felt like I'd died lol. I'm so sorry to waffle on but I've had 2 episodes since then. One was over in 5 minutes thank God, and one last week was 20 minutes. Thankfully both stopped without a hospital visit. But I've been offered no medication for this. Should I? I'm going on holiday soon abroad and I'm concerned if it happens there and I need the hospital. OMG I'm for sorry for going on and on.
