I've had palpitations on and off for several years now. They aren't pleasant but they've been bearable. Recently though they are frightening me. They vary from flutterings to my heart feeling like it's trying to get through my ribs.
Last week, I had horrendous palpitations and they last for over five hours. I went to bed at about 10.00pm and couldn't sleep till well after 2.00am in the morning. I was very down for days and my anxiety was through the roof. I had one episode in bed last night and one this aftenoon and this type of palpitation lasts for about ten to fifteen seconds and my heart feels like it's thumping and trying to get out. My pulse feels weak/different until it passes and then for hours after I'm panicking but trying to keep calm.
It doesn't help that I finished a course of two antibiotics last Tuesday morning. Clindamycin and Ciprofloxacin are two of the worst or giving you terrible diarhea and I'm still trying to stop that so again, my anxiety is high this week. I'm now terrified that it's something bad, I'm on constant health alert and down about it so when the palpitations start, I just sit and fret and/or cry.
Does anyone here get palpitations that bad? I've read about many who've had them and it reassures me but when I get them, all logic goes out of the window. Thanks for listening.
