Hi

Yesterday I was taken by ambulance to the ER, who let me out hours later, telling me that they could find nothing wrong.

I had experienced near syncope when I go up from a supine position. My heart was speeding up from 75 to 140(diagnosed with IST/POTS so high pulse is normal), then fell down to 80 then started upwards again, alle within a matter of seconds.

I layed down and tried to stand up again and the same thing happened where I feel extremely dizzy like I am going to pass out.

When I was laying down my heart would beat VERY hard and at a rate of about 120. It would also say rythmic gurgling sounds.

When the paramedics came I had taken beta blokers which seemed to have helped. I was in sinus rhytm with borderline normal ecg, showing junctional st depression and qt of 296. My blood pressure as 165/100. Is this qt not short and indicative of danger for sudden death?

Anybody has any thoughts on what happened?

hi. blood pressure not good. i am learning slowly about stuff. the beta got you back down. so that is good. any further treatment in er? i don't quite understand qt and st, but i am learning. in danger of sudden death, i think you would have been hospitalized. i feel the best bet is to speak with ya cardiologist. take care. let us know how it goes. i am going to the doc about the light head thing myself. had a double by-pass. healing thoughts.
