Hi everyone, looking for some advice. I am a 28yr old previously healthy mother of two. Youngest was born 8 months ago. Not long after she was born I started having some odd symptoms. Including palpations, chest pain, feelings of breathlessness, leg cramps, dizziness, one episode of blurred vision to name a few. After one scary episode of chest pain I had a 24hr tape during which nothing happened. SInce I have developed racing heart just on standing and walking around. I had bloods done which showed low potassium - doctors are in process of retesting and retesing until they get a borderline normal result I presume (im current awaiting 3rd set of blood results!) I have a blood pressure monitor in the house and have notived that whilst im lying down my pulse ranges from 55-70 at most. When standing it goes up to over 100 - up to 120 just walking.
The gp is keen to write my symptoms off to aniexty but Im not convinced. Part of me is starting to think maybe I am crazy. Im constantly exhausted and struggle to make it through the day if Im honest. Any input or advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
