I know this sounds weird...my doctors think I am crazy. I have been to the doctor almost a year ago but they could not find anything with an EKG and monitor.

My symptoms started only when I was physically active and now it happens all the time - even when I am sitting doing nothing. I am starting to be afraid to drive.

It is like my heart kinds jump/skips and then beats rapidly. During that it is like someone is turning a light switch on and off quickly as I cannot see and things are black for a second and I feel like I am going to fall. My ears are ringing and I feel like I can't breath. This all happens in seconds and will happen over and over and over. I am so tired of it :mad:. I wish I could stop this or if I am going to die then get it over with. I don't have time for this. No one seems to know what is wrong :confused:. Please help if you can...

Thanks,
Stressedoutmom
