So im 30 male 6 foot 2 170 lbs. Ive always been in shape and never had any health issues until this started 3 years ago.
Basically what happens is anytime I lift weights ( especially with effort or lift heavy) my heart goes out of rhythm or on the edge of an "attack". It also occurs if i sprint..and sometimes even when i jog. Its more likely to happen during certain movements such as overhead presses and squats, those set it off almost immediately. Doing regular arm curls i do alot better with. But still if i push myself at all to the point of exertion or sweating my heart will go into an "attack".
These attacks I've had about 20-25 of them id say in the past few years. Mt heart resting will be around 180-190, blurry vision, very sweaty palms, dizziness, and sense of doom (similar to how heart attack is described). I also get tingling feet and hands..sometimes my entire arm, and my hands and legs usually tremble. This also has occurred before whenever i drink caffeine. (However for the previous 27 years of my life before this began i was extremely athletic and drank caffeine on a fairly regular basis without ever one issue).
Going into the ER during these attacks they call them panic attacks, however i feel they are not. My cardiologist says they are only PVCs and PACs of my heart ( he doesn't address the actual attack just the heart on ekg). My GP said its overactive nervous system,my own research leads me to SVT.
So today i went to the gym and was fine until i did a chest motion workout ( bench press) and it's almost like something internally kicked my heart out of rhythm is what it felt like. I was fine while doing arms workouts and running. Then once i went into the attack i was immediately tachycardic followed by a rhythm that was slower and went BOOM-BOOM ( 2 rapid beats followed by a pause..then two more Rapid beats followed by a pause). During this rhythm i felt like i was either going to die or pass out and blackout but i managed not to. On the way to the ER i came out of the rhythm so i didnt go.
Beta blockers ( propranolol) hasn't helped much only very slightly..and calcium channel blocker (cartia xt) hasn't helped at all either.
Recently 4 months ago i developed another health issue where i never get hungry and my stomach will bloat pretty badly when i eat a regular sized meal. I feel better when i dont eat for extended periods of time and only eat very tiny amounts but ive veen losing too much weight.
I dont know if these issues are connected or not connected but does anyone have any ideas on either the heart issue by itself or the combination? Thanks
