I was diagnosed with High BP and anxiety about a year ago...While both these symptoms subsided after 2 months of medication, i was again diagnosed with High BP... though not very high, my doctor prescribed me Telista 20mg (1 dose per day).... I also started to have palpitations and felt my heart pumping fast. My Eco and Holter test were predominantly normal, however, at one point holter reported my heartbeat at 181bps (i was having an argument at that time). My doctor mentioned that 181 bps was very high (my average in 24 hours was 82bps) and prescribed Ivabrad 5 mg..... My questions are 1) is my palpitation caused by some medication mentioned above? 2) is my heart rate really high? 3) what could be possible reasons for my papitations? Age: 35 years

My heart flutters a lot and 4 times already I have actually felt it quiver, it felt like a very very fast spasm that is not actually a beat but a fast shaking. When I have felt the quiver, my face feels like it is hot and red, and I lose a breath and I can t breathe in deep until my heart jumps back into rythm. This heart problem started when I was pregnant with my first child. About the sixth month or so. It started as beating really fast for no particular reason, and I would get so out of breath. It was very similar to having tachycardia . After I delivered, over the next 5 years or so I have felt changes in the condition. After the fast beating and breathing, I started to feel like 1 off beat that I could actually feel. I felt it coming on and I would get behind on a breath, my chest would feel like it flooded with a warm liquid and then the off beat. After some time it progressed to 2 off beats then 3. And now I feel flutters like a fish out of water. Occasionally I have felt the quivers and they are very scary. I have only experienced the quivers like 3 or 4 times as I stated earlier. I do notice that I have the flutters when I drink more caffiene than usual and have more stress. Sometimes I can actually think of them and they happen. My OBGYN told me when I delivered the baby that they would disappear but that was not the case, It is actually gotten worse as you can read from my post. Please tell me what is wrong with my heart.
