Hi, Iím a 30 year old female and have had heart palpitations since I was in high school. In high school I only got them occasionally when I played sports. Over the course of the last 10 years or so I have gotten them here and there but rarely and nothing enough to scare or worry me. Now all of a sudden I have gotten them bad. Like every day, multiple times a day. I get lots of skips, sometimes big thumping skips where it almost feels like my heart stops for a split second and jumps out of my chest, and sometimes I just get lots of flutters. It doesnít matter what Iím doing. I could be sitting, laying down, working, exercising, literally doing nothing, and it will happen. Iíve seen 2 doctors now, have been through a 48 hour heart monitor, a 30 day heart monitor, have had lab work done, quite a few ekgs, and a heart ultrasound done. Everything is normal. Iím not deficient in anything. My heart rate doesnít go above the normal range and the amount of pvcís I get are not enough to be concerning. Which blows my mind because I get a lot throughout the day. Iíve been told itís just my anxiety which Iíve always had but my anxiety has gotten so much worse due to the palpitations. I am beyond frustrated. I canít live like this. I canít function or get through my day. Iíve had to miss work. Some days I canít help with my kids. Because no matter what I do will set it off. I am now taking 12.5mg of metoprolol and I thought it was helping, my skips were a little more subtle but I could still feel them. I went 5 days without any skipping and now Iím getting more skipping again. Was told to take a full dose which is 25mg and I will have to but I am so tired of dealing with this. I just want it to be gone completely and I want to be able to live my life without having to worry, think about or get distracted by my heart skipping. I know a lot of people that have had the catheter ablation done but because all my tests come back normal I donít think Iíd have a reason to get one done. Sometimes I wish I could just get one because maybe ďzapping the bad circuitĒ would just get rid of the problem. Thereís always risks though with any procedure so that worries me too. Iíve read that it doesnít always work for some people either. But like I said I donít think I would be able to get one done anyway. I feel like Iím stuck and thereís no way out. Does anybody have a similar problem or any suggestions? I have not been referred to a cardiologist yet but Iím hoping to see one in the near future. Maybe they can help me more.
