I have had Cardiac symptoms for many years. My dr diagnosed me with SVT, and said he thought I had SA node dysfunction. The last 3 yrs I have developed frequent and severe PVCs. I sometimes have them for hours for weeks every other beat (bigeminy), so they put me on lopressor which I only take PRN, when i cant function bc of symptoms. I have had runs around 200bpm not induced by activity. My Resting HR had been around 80+ Since I was a teen. I am now experiencing lower rates for hours at time, not clinical Brady, but low for me. The other night my husband and I were fighting I was so upset and wound up, my HR was 66 and didn't budge for two hours, I was short of breath and light headed. Yesterday I felt like my heart was very tachy, I was lightheaded, had pre syncope, nausea, and my rate was only 98. Although only 98 I felt like it was much faster and I felt symptoms as though I wasn't getting enough blood to my brain. It felt like it was an irregular rhythm.

Anyone with similar feelings? I feel like there's a zip tie around my chest. I have to use cold water ice packs, Val salva, sometimes it helps sometimes it doesn't. They now say they think I have runs of v tach, but with the low rate sometimes that doesn't respond normal to stress in the abscence of meds.... I am scared thhis just don't know at all. I also had Lyme disease. I feel like my heart is all over the map, but I always have pre syncope, sometimes shakey usually half way through it. Also do any of you have GI distress after an arrythmia episode?

I am a 39 yr old female, no co morbidities.

somebody. how is your blood pressure? keep an eye on it. sounds like ya getting bilious. any postural drop issues? trying to help. sorry for not replying sooner. vision issues and been on the go. keep strong and get back to the cxardio and let em know what is going on.

also hving major issues with ads. I am vision challenged and I have tried what has been recommended and stuff, and an add blocker-but I can not access the site without the bombardment. I get side adds that go across the screen, little ones and qtr page, pop ups, blank adds, it is relentless. so until something can be done I will only post when I can. it slows me down, stuffs with my screen.
