Pregnant, high pulse rate, weakness, excessive body heat. Stress test normal. Cure?
I am 26 years old. When I was 18 I started feeling my heart racing really fast. I went to a cardiologist and put me through stress tests and did not find anything. Throughout the years I get is occasionally. I am currently pregnant with my 3rd child and I am feeling it more often. Right now my heart has been racing for an hour, I feel weak, Im really hot, and I think because I am so hot my whole body just itches.
Welcome to HCM,
If your cardiac status is normal then the next important thing to be considered is an undiagnosed thyroid problem.
I suggest you should check your TSH level to rule out this possibility.
Have a nice day.
