Hi everyone, i'm new to the site so am not sure how to use everything properly so i am sorry if i do anything wrong :)
My name is Brad and I am 17 years old. A few weeks ago i was lying in bed the night after i had been out the night before drinking with friends.
Whilst laying in bed, i felt my heart go funny and, what i can only describe as, it felt like it stopped for a split second. I felt as though i was going to pass out, i quickly got up and went to inform my mum of what was going on, i was really panicking and my heart rate was ridiculously fast.
I had a rushing feeling down both arms and i felt very dizzy and short of breath.
My mum rang the ambulance and i was hooked up to a heart rate monitor where it showed my heart rate as 144 beats a minute when the average heart rate is between 70 and 80.
Has anyone got any idea what this could be down to? The hospital put it down purely to a panick attack but i still struggle with shortness of breath and chest pains in the left side of my chest although i have been given an asthma pump?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
