I'm awaiting a holter monitor at the moment so thought i'd ask here. I have had these episodes happen only a handful of times in the last 4 years but my god they terrify me and im convinced it is VT. Basically my heart goes completly out of whack. I feel chest pressure with a feeling like my heart is filling with blood but no pulse for approximatly 4 seconds (feels like fluttering) then i will feel a huge beat and fluttering again. I can feel my cortiroid artery vibrate when the fluttering is happening. When heart does beat its like it punches my chest wall. Its erratic and very irregular and so hard to explain. All i can say it feels like is "someone threw a brick into a spinning washing machine" the sensation is awful and takes my breath. I can feel it throughout my whole chest and its very different to PVCs. I have to stop what im doing and wait till it passes (10-30) seconds. My pulse is like this: .............beat.....beat............beat......beat..beat..............beat.beat.beat.beat. (......are pauses and lenght) Thing is i know it won't happen when holter is on. I have already been diagnosed with pvc's and SVT. And these are neither of these. I have spoken to my doc who cant say what it is without catching it on monitor so im hoping someone here can shed some light as im going mad at the moment. Im so scared of being on my own in case it happens again. I wont relax until it caught. Thanks in advance.
