Hi..I have been suffering from heart palpitations for four years now. As of late they have become more bothersome. All I feel is beat..beat..beat..BEAT(like a hard thump)..then back to normal. I feel several of these a day. I have been to the ER more times then I can count. I have had 5 ekgs in 3 weeks..only thing it mentioned on one was sinus tachycardia. I have had numerous blood work done to the point my arms are sore and bruised. They came back good. I have had 2 chest xrays, they came back good. They did a ct angiography to check for blood clots, that came back good. My heart rate jumps from just me standing from the sitting position. I feel like my balance is unsteady all the time. I feel like im swaying when laying down. I have this constant vibration through my body..I am currently on a 30 day event monitor to figure out the cause of these palpitations..I have echo and stress test scheduled tomorrow..no family history of heart disease..my father had high blood pressure though. This has me to the point where I am constantly on edge..worried something bad is gonna happen..cant sleep barely because I am worried about my health..I cant function properly anymore..my marriage and my kids are suffering because im on the couch most of the day..dont wanna move. I want my life back.i need 100% reassurance my heart is good. Please I need help. I am 28 years old..5 ft 1..146 lbs..dont smoke..dont drink..no caffeine..I am trying to eat better..I walk when I get time..I just want to get better. I have three kids and a husband who need me. Any ideas on what this could be?View Thread
