About 10 years ago I started having an irregular hearbeat along with pressure in my chest, shortness of breath, and tingling/numbness from my left armpit down into my fingers. Naturally it scared the hell out of me so went to the ER. They ran some tests and said I was fine. I was only 22 then and have no history of heart problems on either my Mom or Dad's side of the family. But they never stopped and have only gotten worse.
The only way to put it is they piss me off. I cant sleep when they start and they only bother me at night when Im trying to go to sleep. When they start occurring I cant sleep at all and usually they end up keeping me awake the entire night. In the last 10 years I have worn a holter monitor for 2 months, had half a dozen EKGs done, Echocardiogram, Stress test, chest X Rays and MRIs, and blood tests and all I seem to be doing is throwing money at doctors because 2 different radiologists and a cardiologist have said my heart is in great shape. If they keep telling me my heart is fine then why cant I sleep at night because of irregular beats and how do I make them stop so I can sleep?View Thread
