I am only 22 and Arythmia is interfering with my life
I wore a 24 hour heart monitor after i complained to my doctor about heart palpitations and things. He came to the conclusion that I had arythmia (I forget the exact name of it but apparently it is a non threatning type) He said if it got really bothersome he could prescribe me a blood peasure med to lower BP. I dont think that would help becasue half the time my BP feels like it too low already. I am constantly harrased by the feelings in my chest of fluttering heartbeats, missed beats and light headedness and fatigue. This has only recently been occuring within the last three months or so. I havent had this problem my wole life. any ideas as to why this suddenly started happening and if it will ever just go away like it came ? I am only 22 and im otherwise healthy and it really bothers me that i start to feel bad ( weak, and faint) after simple thing slike giving my baby girl a bath or picking her up to hold her.
Go to a cardiologist and have them examine you. It could be as simple as anxiety causing all these palpitations. It could also be more serious. You are too young to have these problems. Go to someone who is knowledgeable in this area and go soon.
