hello old friends - been feeling really great lately. Lost 25 lbs and got my blood pressure down to normal level
maybe a lil too low 98/66 is the lowest range with 120/80. yet today I got the worst "panic attack" ever. Well at least I thought it was
I got a few heart flutters after exercising and got lightheaded and started hyperventilating. so I did like I usually do pop a view klonopins and then breathe thru a paper bag/ This episode just worried me beause I had been panic/heart flutter free for quite a while/
So I decided to head over to Dr office my heart rate was 146 (my norm is 68) bp was 129/75 crazy uh
He listedned to my heart and said her heard that murmur. Immediately went to get an EKG and have not heard from the Doc since
He is a military Dr. so sorry i dont have much trust in him also, he was rushing me and not letting me really talk. I told him i have white coat syndrome so i usually get nervous and ancxious at the Dr office but myheart rate stayed in the high 90's for a few hours.
So my dilemna is that I am worried I may have pathological heart murmur (damaged valves) versus the innocent heart murmur.
Or it just may be the anxiety rearing its ugly head again. I just dont know. I feel so depressed at this point because no one understands my fear.
Maybe someone here understands. please write if you do. You all always come through for me and make life a little easier. I truly love this site. Thanks for reading.
