I’ve been having heart palpitations for weeks now. Whenever I lays down or every time I eat, my heart pounds really hard in my chest. Sometimes it feels like my breathing is slowing down and then I have to take a deep breath. Also my heart is starting to do this weird thing where it feels like it’s about to skip a beat, it feels like it’s trying to but it doesn’t and it’s really uncomfortable, it happens every few seconds. A few months ago I started having skipped beats literally every second. I always had to lay down or sit because as soon as I would get up to walk they would start back up. I would constantly feel shortness of breath or out of breath, as if I’d been running. I felt pains a lot but not very often, like a lot of joint pains and chest pains. My head randomly starts tingling and it feels like water is dripping down my brain, it’s a really strange sensation. Also sometimes I feel really weak, if I were to bend my legs they would start shaking uncontrollably and I’d feel really dizzy. I feel my heart in my throat every time it feels like it’s about to skip a beat. I’m 17 years old and I’m a pretty healthy person. I eat fair amounts of fruits and veggies, drink mostly water and last summer I had went vegan for a few months before slowly starting to add dairy back into my life. I’m a pretty active person, I use to dance I’ve been dancing since I was 3. Sometimes when I’m about to go to sleep I feel like I stopped breathing and it jolts me awake and I gotta take a deep breath, that happens a few times throughout the night before I can actually fall asleep. I did use to smoke weed. Not a lot, mainly when I was with certain people, I stopped a few months ago because I had a very low tolerance and every time I would smoke huge amounts I had panic attacks. I’m scared something is gonna happen to me like my heart is gonna spaz out and stop or I’m gonna have a stroke or blood clots or something. It’s hard trying to hang out with friends and do normal things, I constantly wanna only stay home with my mom. I ask friends and people I know if they experience some of these things and they never know what I’m talking about. My family doesn’t have insurance, my parents refuse to take me to the doctor no matter how much I stress what’s wrong with me, they don’t take it serious or believe anything’s really wrong. When I ask my mom she says, “welcome to the rest of world without insurance, doctor don’t know anything anyways your gonna be wasting your money”. I have a friend who just turned 20 and he said he’ll take me to the doctor and be my guardian that day, he agreed he’ll use his tax return money to pay for my medical expenses. Idk how long it is until he gets it, but I’m just scared. I’m currently an actress, I’ve worked on a lot of local projects and I’m in the process of making my own short film. I have too much going on to die😭 I really need help some of symptoms are really strange!
