Hello everybody, I wanted to mention one of my most persistent symptoms and see if anyone experiences this, because its one that ive often wondered was caused by something other than mono/ebv.
Almost daily at some point, i will experience the sensation of being able to feel my blood/something pulsing inside of my body. I'll most often feel this in the vicinity of my chest or neck. sometimes it feels like my heart is pounding but if i put my hand on mu chest, there isnt a feeling of movement, whereas if i got cut off in traffic and i put my hand on my chest, i can feel the thump of my heart through my chest. also, my heart rate is still in a normal range with this pulsing, its usually no higher than 80 bpm, but it is definitely an agitated feeling. also, i had a whole battery of heart tests when i first got sick and they say my heart is healthy, although my top blood pressure number is high, which my naturopath thinks can be related to the stress of the body fighting infection.
Anyway, this pulsing gets worse after heavy meals and at night, and its usually absent in the morning and kind of builds as the day goes on. i used to think it was increased blood flow intensity to areas of my chest and throat where the virus was occupying my body in an effort to kill it, but im not sure.
occasionally id feel pulsing in my fingertips too, i think that may be because i rock climb and my fingers get worked snd its them reparing. Lastly, sometimes i wonder if im a little crazy and just hyper aware of my blood flow and pulse now and am just making it worse by always checking in with it. or perhaps its my immune or nervous system that causes this sensation.
please let me know if you experience feeling a pulsing within you.
