About 2-3 weeks off my citalopram.. Im doing good mentally, for the most part.. My biggest issue is still this chest pain. It just won't stop. I was having a bit of chest discomfort Monday morning.. My boyfriend came home from a trip Sunday so I was excited on Monday.. Then it happened.. We had intercourse and I was extremely excited and into it. During probably 10-15 minutes of it, I had around 6-7 heart thumps.. Big ones.. Now my biggest complaint since march is that during sex, it is not uncommon for me to get a heart palp.. The more excited and active I am, the more I get them
They don't happen every single time, but 90% of the time. Anyways, after these thumps, which were not normal ones for me, I got slightly chest aches after. Again, I had chest discomfort earlier that day.. I'm now still feeling chest discomfort three days later.. I have pain directly in the middle towards the left, like directly in my heart.. My heart rate has been a bit fast, but I've also began drinking coffee once every morning to get me through my long days.. I cannot find ANY insight on why I get these heart palpitations during sex.. Not during any other form of activity. I can run up and downstairs and not get one palps.. Can someone tell me why this is happening? Is it adrenaline and now just anxiety telling me my chest hurts? I should mention I was in the ER 4 weeks ago, chest xray, blood work and EKG all came back perfect.. Will this ever end? I NEVER had a palps during sex until four months after my son was born (coincidentally about a month after all my insane symptoms started). I'm beginning to feel insane, I can no longer enjoy intercourse. I'm asking for a referral to a cardiologist but cannot get to one for a few weeks at least.
