For the past 2 months I have been battling these symptoms of what seems to be tachycardia. I can be sitting, standing, walking and my heart rate shoots through the roof at random. Its gone as high as 154.I've had many ER visits and sadly they don't do a thing but I am usually alone and scared when this happens and don't know what else to do. It does usually return to normal but it can be hours. Its like my resting heart beat is non existent in this time. It'll be say, 73, 87, 101, 65, 95, shoot up to 130... Then goes down and bottoms out. So I had gallbladder trouble recently and had a stone in the duct and my dr was almost certain it was causing my erratic heart rate. So I had it out Tuesday and this is still going on. Blood pressure spikes too. My bp was just 153 over 103 and I'm not so sure that was the problem anymore. So she had me reschedule my appointment and now I got to wait till September 13th to get in. Thats not real long... But long enough for me. It astonished everyone that my blood pressure and rate can go normal for awhile then boom, spikes and changes drastically. I'm scared that i have a serious problem and everyone's taking it lightly. Some of my ER visits did ekg and caught AFIB and some visits catch it completely normal. My dr still thinks its the gallbladder removal that the duct has to recover and go back to normal but I'm worried its a heart problem. Although I've never had a problem all my life with heart disease. This is sudden. Not sure if things can happen suddenly or not. But anyways I'm a 28 year old female. I was generally healthy and could go on a treadmill for 5 miles before this came about. I do have a family history but everyone was in their 40s and 50s. Sometimes it feels like blood pooling in my legs and my hands and feet all of a sudden feel like pin needles and my blood pressure and rate shoots through the roof. My blood pressure has been 200 over 197 at one crazy time. 170 over 144. Things like that. Then later goes back to normal. I am at a loss and don't know how much more I can take. Doctors shove me to the waiting room now because they don't think its serious. But its serious to me. Because I want answers. This morning upon waking my heart rate was 110. Ive noticed since my surgery my resting heart rate has increased. Went from being in the 60s to like 99.

I forgot to add, I am seeing a cardiologist on the 13th. I wore a event monitor for 30 days. The ER has my readings. Its getting to where I can't walk but a few feet without getting dizzy and shakey.
