So, I am 25 and this has happened three times in my life.
The first time, I woke up feeling faint, notice my heart rate was very slow, I had jelly legs, I went to the toilet and the poop was like dihorreah. The night before I was fine. This lasted for around 10 minutes, I didn't faint, and afterwards I was fine.
Forward several years, and I wake up one morning fine. I then (I think) go to the toilet. It was the day I was coming back from holiday, so sat down, then starting to feel what I can describe as fuzzy headed/unwell. Color had apparently drained from my face etc. Noticed sensations in my stomach. Felt ill. Then over a period of 30 to 40 minutes it got worse and I began to spin. By this time we were in the car on the way home. We stopped, and by the time the door was open, I felt okay again and I was normal after this. As I started to spin, I did notice a thud in my chest, like my heart had missed a beat.
Ten months later, I wake up, go to the toilet, poop was like diarrhoea again. During the bowel movement I feel this strange indescribable sensation in my stomach. Over then next 40 minutes, my legs turn to jelly, I become quite agitated, legs turn to jelly, colour drains from my face, and I feel quite sick/ill. I again begin to spin. On this occasion, I had started to walk to the bus stop to walk, I had to stop walking because my legs went to jelly. Then I begin to spin very fast. I notice the thudding in my chest, and my heart beat is very slow and i think irregular. I lose partially my sight. This went on for 5 or so minutes, then it stopped and I was fine afterwards, if a little shaken. I am scared to visit a doctor. Yes, I know I should.
I am certain it is a problem with my heart. So what could it be?
I do sometimes feel extra/skipped beats when at rest which cause me to take notice of them. They last for a split second. They don't happen every day. They are not becoming more frequent or worse.
Thanks for any help!
