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.
