I may be maker a bigger deal out of this than I should. When I was pregnant with my son 9 years ago I began having these episodes. From out of nowhere (almost always while resting), my heart felt like it stopped (actually felt like someone slammed a book on it) then it felt like it was racing to "catch back up". I know it sounds weird....
Anyway, it continued periodically after my son was born and my blood pressure was slightly elevated at times (before my son I had perfect bp--120/70). Fast forward about 3 years and I finally went to a cardiologist (funky ekg during routine yearly exam) per my doctor's orders. I was fitted with a heart monitor and the doc. found that I had a short pq or pt rhythm (sorry, can't remember which). Said I didn't require meds right now...
Fast forward 5 years--I've recently had two episodes where I experienced the exact same things but it took my heart much longer to "start again". Sorry, it's the only way I know how to describe it. Anyway, it took so long that I nearly fainted both times. What is this???!!! Someone mentioned to me Brady-tachy syndrome. Any help would be appreciated. Yes, I'm calling my cariologist tomorrow!
