On Friday, I experienced something I haven't had before in a lengthy spell of heart palpitations. They went on for at least two-an-a-half hours and were accompanied by slight dizziness, shortness of breath, a tight chest and a bit of chest pain. I went to A&E - by which time the palpitations had stopped - and was given an all-clear after a blood press test and an ECG.
Doctor told me chest pain was probably only muscle pain - something I do not agree with as I didn't have it before or the day after, and I hadn't done any exercise for a week due to a cold.
Today (Monday) I have had the same thing happen to me - palpitations on and off all morning. I went for a run this morning, but they started some time after I had returned (at least two hours) and they won't dtop. Have a bit of pain again and shortness of breath.
I have asthma and regulalry use my bricanyl inhaler - no other meds bar the occasional paracetemol or ibuprofen. I have had a few minor palpitations in the past - but they are just for a second or two, rather than a matter of hours.
All a bit worrying! Any advice? Thanks!
