abit of my history in a brief paragraph -
suffered anxiety and panick attacks since 2011.
i have had extra beats and rapid heart rates during times of anxiety, and alot of hospital trips. i never worried too much up till mid last year when i kept feeling extra beats during exercise. very rarely on rest, and 70% of the time on exercise. i had a round of tests done. an echocardiogram - which was normal, no valve abnormalities or thickening. i had a 48hr holter monitor - nothing exciting just a couple of pvc's and a pac. then i had a treadmill test for 12 minutes, stopped off my own accord due to anxiety, and that only uncovered sinus tachycardia due to the anxiety!
i have other symptoms, chest pain/aching when at rest. sometimes i have a ache on the RIGHT side of the chest after a good 20 mins of exercise. nothing unbearable, but noticeable.
near enough 50% of the time, as im coming to the end of workout, i start getting anxious. it makes my heart rate ' stick ' on high, and a little lightheaded.
i more worried about being that unlucky one that slipped through the net of the screening. how often is this? i have asked my E.P and doctor about fabrice muamba's situation and nobody will answer me correctly. is this because he is proof these screenings arent up to scratch? how could his condition be missed after four screenings!! it scares me.
