Hi, I normally post on IBS, Fibro, Chronic Pain and Migraine forums, but I have some heart issues going on and was hoping maybe some of you had some suggestions / advice:
For a couple of weeks or so on and off, I have been having these heart issues; come and go, but last week have been getting worse and last 2 days have been awful. I am having irregular heart beat with palpitations and funny feeling like fluttering when it does this and it last for awhile before stopping; worse with any type of movement even turning over while lying down. My heart rate speeds up and slows down; extra beats and skipping of beats and it is very distinctive. No chest pain noted, but I have been having shortness of breath; which I was dx with bronchitis 3-4 wks ago and still have somewhat of a cough. Got a fever yesterday am of 101.0 don't know why: only symptom I had was Migraine Headache and slight cough - better than it was - and chills and small amt of abdominal pain in left upper quad (which is fairly normal for me with the ibs ). Today my temp is down to 99.0 and no chills - except after bowel movement which started out as constipation - used enema and cleared that up. I do have stress, but i have always had stress and at first I thought that was it, but now I am not so sure: the heart stuff is coming very often, and lasting awhile and like i said it is worse with movement. Does any of this sound familiar to any of you all? This is the 2nd unexplained fever in 2 wks - that last for a day and is then gone and doesn't exceed 101.0. I am wondering if I should go to ER and have it checked out, or just relax and wait until Monday? I am also worried it won't show up on an EKG (since it comes and goes). Also, I don't have any insurance and am financially struggling at the current time. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance
