I'm hoping I can get some kind of answer here, because I've failed to get one elsewhere, and it is really beginning to effect my daily life. My heart rate is ll over the place. Resting it stays steady typically at 60-65, with random increases. But the moment I stand or sit up it immediately jumps to 120-130. I have read that what helps this is to sit up slower, but this doesn't help. It does not matter how long I am standing for my heart rate is elevated, and ultimately results in me nearly or completely passing out. I have gone to my doctor about this issue and have made a trip to the ER only to result in being told that this is just my normal. That there is nothing wrong. I'm desperate for some answers. Is there anything that I can suggest to the doctors to check or for a possibility of what is causing my symptoms or how I can improve them?
I did also forgot to mention. When my heart races in this way, it literally feels like is going to pound out of my chest. And is often accompanied by chest pain. Almost feeling like a weight is resting on my chest and sometimes making it difficult to breath.View Thread
