What causes heart rate Fluctuations?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi i'm a 22 male with bad anxiety, im waiting to have a heart monitor fitted for a day because i was recently emitted to hospital, they didn't find anything, my heart rate and BP was high but they put it down to stress but want to check everything. ****anyways, my heart rate at rest goes up and down all the time, its 70 and next minute its 100 and drops back down and then goes back up, i tried googling but there doesn't seem to be a actual answer to it, it doesn't seem to understand my google search and just comes up with tachycardia. Is this serious? i feel breathless most of the time and tingly and shaky and its really getting me down now.

    Adrenalin release does this. It makes your heart erratic and it causes the breathlessness feeling. It's part of the fight and flight response. The reason you feel breathless is because you body is demanding more oxygen in order to run or react to a danger that does not exist. It's an inappropriate release of adrenaline.

    Oh my, you're too young to be troubled with such issues. I have something like you described,

    but my issue is related to repeated attacks of atrial fibrillation/flutter. I will be seeing an electrophysiologist, who is a cardiologist who specializes in the electrical system of the heart.

    One of my options will be a pacemaker. To be safe I'd see someone to make sure it's not something more serious.
