hi all i have off and on had episodes of palpitations (heart beating fast and to extent i can feel it through my chest) then quickly afterwards i get chest pain its usually in the midlle but can sometimes move to the side or my back, feels like someone is gripping inside. i often get shaky hands, sometimes have a heavy feeling in my arms and seem to have to sigh a lot. after mentioning it to a colleague last year i was sent home to 'sort it out', i ended up in casualty by which point the pain had gone - as it always does, they did an ecg and apparently i had t wave inversion in some of the leads? this led to an exercise test which went fine until i stopped with a heart rate of about 160, the problem was i had strings of 8-10 ventricular ectopics at a time as my heart was resting back to normal, it made me feel like i was going to pass out. i was put on a small dose of beta blockers and waited for an out patient angiogram , i had this and it was normal. i havent seen a doctor since!! i stopped the beta blockers about 5 months ago, because things seemed fine, but i have in the last month started with the same problem again. i dont drink too much coffee/tea or alcohol, dont do drugs but do smoke about 12 roll ups a day and am not stressed or overweight. do i have a problem or is it something i can just ignore, im 36 yrs old and a woman, so a heart problem seems unlikely to me. any advice would be welcomeReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
