Hi guys my name is Bilal and i am from London, England im 19 years old and currently studying at college. For around 2-3 months now i have been experiencing very strange episodes of a fast heart rate of around 100-120 bpm and during the morning i get very sweaty under my arm pits back in june this year i was admitted to hospital via a ambulance because i had a very high temperature nearly 40 degrees and i had a pulse of 190 in the ambulance which subsided to around 135-145 in hospital the next day it was normal around 80-85 bpm the cardiologists carried out around 5 ECGS which they stated were fine i hade a echo in march this year and that was also fine also i have bicuspid valve and aortic and tricuspid leakage which is very small and doctors state is not a worry. However after my stay in june i went home feeling fine but a few weeks later i had some very strange episodes of sweating, fast heart rate, high blood pressure and breathlessness i use a inhaler called ventolin this episode also occured in college which is seriously hampering my study in classes i get these very shaky feelings and light headness the doctors think i have anxiety but last week i had a meal and the episodes began again and today i had one after eating some asian food (curry) i also feel light headed and hollow in the abdomen during these episodes could any one please tell me what triggers this horrible feelings and episodes i would really appreciate it thanks people take care. woops forgot about family history my brother died of cardiomyopathy at 7 years old so did my grandparents so there is a history of heart illnesses could anyone suggest anything quickly thanks again.

Hello Bilal

I am Kitt and Welcome to HealingWell.

I read your post a couple of times. I think with your family history you have a right to feel anxious. If you feel you need a more indepth cardiac work up there are other tests that can be done, echocardiograms, stress tests etc. Your EKG will normally pick up any irregular beats to indicate you have cardioasclar disease.

If your 19 and away at school, you have a lot of pressure on you as well as change in your life.

The most common type of tachycardia is sinus tachycardia, which is the body's normal reaction to stress. Treatment is generally directed at identifying the underlying cause. Anxiety is a common cause of this type of tachycardia.

Relaxation exercises are techniques to relax muscles and relieve tension by using controlled breathing and muscle flexing. They usually involve sitting down in a comfortable chair, closing your eyes and systematically tensing and relaxing different muscle groups in your body, usually starting with the legs and feet.

I use this method of relaxing when my anxiety is getting out of control. This is something you can do just about anywhere. You can do it at work, on a plane, at the mall…………just take a few minutes to concentrate on relaxing your whole body and keep telling yourself you are ok. Nothing bad is going to happen to you. You are safe.

There are many other ways to relax and slow that heart rate, if your at home, a warm soothing bath, your favorite music, stretching exercises. I know members use a wide variety of methods.

There is always therapy to learn to deal with your anxiety. If you are not already seeing a therapist you may want to consider the possibility.

Your on an inhaler, do you have a lung disease?

Has your physician ever tried you on a PPI such as Prilosec? You mentioned episodes starting after meals.

Please remember I am not a professional and if you feel you need to go to the ER please don't hesitate.

I have anxiety and depression so I understand these well.

I believe you will be ok but do persue your problems.

Gentle Hugs
Kitt

allergies maybe??? its a longshot but worth a try getting tested .

Gather as much info as you can maybe something sets it off anything from food to hot or cold temperatures .

Ventolin could set it off too after 2 nebulizers and the doc beating on my back I was prescribed ventolin ,prednisone, and an antibiotic... the ventolin I was expected to take for two weeks but after 9 days I had to stop i was getting weird sensations and alot of hot flashes along with a sweating feeling but I wasn't actually sweating . I have COPD emphysema and use an inhaler . I know you've had episodes before the ventilin and I would suggest focusing on other areas although it does sound like you have heart problems too so don't rule them out and by all means don't feel like you've exhausted your search for results . Keep going to your doctor or a doctor . Sorry I can't be of much help but if i can think of something else I will post it .

I seems like part of your high pulse rate was caused by being a little overwhelmed with what is going on with your health afterall it rose then by morning calmed rght down to within normal relaxed range .

A week ago I went through a gastroscopy without any anesthetic and during the procedure I concentrated on relaxing as much as possible so I wouldn't injure myself . I figured why be dopey and stoned for up to 24 hours over a 10 minute procedure . I was the only one to go without , everyone else coward out and the nurses even tried talking me into it. anyhow the point is my pulse was very high and BP was 190 over 100. I won't do that too often . Best of luck finding the problem .

** I deleted the other thread so there would not be 2 the same
