Recurring episodes of rapid pulse, rise in temperature, sweating causing difficulty in moving or talking. History of gastric bypass. Cause?

I am a 39 year old female and for the few months, about 2 times a month I have had episodes where I feel like I am going to pass out but never actually have. My pulse will race, my temp rises and I can t stop sweating. I can barely function enough to get to a couch or bed. Thankfully there seems to be enough warning that it s happening that I can be somewhere safe. But when it hits, moving and even talking feel like they drain my energy even more. They last about 15-20 minutes but I don t feel 100% for about 24 hours. I m concerned about heart issues as my mother died at 48 from heart disease. I had gastric bypass 2 years ago but can honestly say I ve been very strick about following all guidelines and maintaining a healthy life style.

Hi there,

Thanks for the query.

There are two strongest possibilities of your problems:-

* Firstly, there is a heart condition called "Paroxysmal tachycardia" in which there is a sudden, transient increase in the heart rate, lasting for 10-20 minutes. During this period, the heart is unable to pump adequate amount of blood to vital organs of the body and, hence the symptoms. You may therefore consult a Cardiologist who will do an ECG and, if required, 24-monitoring which will pinpoint the exact cause. In that event, regular treatment will relieve you of these episodes.

* Secondly, the symptoms as similar in Acute Panic Attacks. If you have anxiety/mental stress or unknown apprehensions, Acute Panic Attacks may be the cause. Please consult a Psychiatrist who will prescribe Anti-depressants + anxiolytics which will give relief.
