I was told I have dysautonomia. I was also told I have an extra electrical spot in my heart that sometimes triggers an extra beat and throws off my heart rhythm. These both were diagnosed on me telling about symptoms alone. My question is this, I've been reading about the extra electrical thing and it sounds serious, can it be fatal? Also, I'm not sure my symptoms are right for the diagnosis.

Randomly, a few times a year (a LOT lately) my heart feels like it catches, stops, then beats so fast it's actually fluttering. It's so fast I cough to breath. Once I was at walmart and tried the blood pressure monitor during an episode and my heart rate was over 180. They last less than minutes and afterwards I feel a little tired, like I just ran but, nothing too interfering. Unless it can be fatal.... That's my concern. While it's happening it feels like I might die but it goes so fast I don't have time to get too concerned. Does this sound like something I should have fixed? Is it Wolff Parkinson's Syndrome? Could it just be the dysautonomia?

Hi Ibepatience,

Welcome to the forum. I dont' ususally moderate here, as I am just helping out right now. But I wanted to welcome you to the forum. Hopefully somebody that knows more about this will post. I can just say try to relax, don't let it get you worried, that will only make you feel worse.

Take care, do keep posting.
