I had a random attack of a rapid heart beat which reached 230 bpm back in 2012 ...drs just said it was a panick attack and told me to calm down...the attack lasted a little over an hour anxiety? I think not! ...everything died down after that and i had a diagnoses of general anxoety dissorder.
So since may 2016 I've been having these random attacks where my heart feels like it's going to jump out of my chest! Reaching a rate of between 130-200+ bpm... Dr's kept saying it's just anxiety get over it here we'll up your meds...
I was taken to A&e from my GPS surgery the other day following an attack at college that happened when I wasn't anxious or stressed in fact I was pretty happy and chilled out when suddenly my left arm turned purple, and my heart started racing I felt naseous and dizzy ...this feeling spurred an anxiety attack !
At the hospital the Dr mentioned SVT but considering the fact they'd never actually caught an attack on the ecg's he couldn't conform it and wants me to be fitted with a 24 hr ecg tape...
When I left the hospital I went into another attack I went back in and explained to the nurse my heart is pounding and I'm gonna pass out her reply "you're panicking" I looked her dead in the eye and said do I look panicked to you ? I'm not hyperventilating or worried I need you to do an ecg whilst I'm in this state ...she refused ...8 hours later she called me through to see another Dr who said it's because of my hormone replacement therapy !!!! (I'm female to male transgender and I'm on testosterone and goserelin oestrogen blockers )
So I'm now lost and left to sit and frett about all of this until I can see my gp (hopefully tomorrow)
I was put on propranolol back in may and they caused me to put on 3 stone in a few months I'm terrified they're going to put me back on them as I'm already obese and need to lose a lot of weight for my gender reassignment surgery I can't go on meds that make me gain weight.
And what if it's not SVT and they can't find anything ...where do I go from there ? This is ruining my life and my future 😢😢
Please help !!!
