I haven't been formally diagnosed with POTS, but it's one of the most likely suspects for a lot of my health problems. A couple of my doctors think I have it but don't have the expertise to diagnose it, and I can't do anything more about it until I have insurance again. Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone else with POTS has strong palpitations. I've had some of them, usually not too severe, while on a heart monitor in the hospital, and it always just shows PVC's (I think pre-ventricular contractions or something like that, I just know it's harmless and common and most people can't feel them). Lately I've been getting a lot of them, and they're really strong. It feels like my heart is doing a huge flip flop, or ready to jump out of my chest--it's hard to explain. If I get enough of them they're accompanied by chest pain. What really makes me wonder is that sometimes I can actually see them, which isn't totally unusual for me--if I have enough asthma meds, my heart will be going so crazy that you can see it beating even through my shirt. I don't get worried about too much anymore, since I've had so much happen to me and most of my symptoms turn out to be nothing, but I'm curious to see if anyone else has had a similar experience.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
