  1. I’m told that range so to big of a range. That we need to check when we feel our best to get checked and most likely that’s the range we should aim to be at. There some people that do amazing at .33-.47 others do better in the center or end of the range and they take meds to make sure to stay there. last month I was at 1.87 and I felt amazing. This last month it was 1.94 and I feel horrible. So bad I ended up in the hospital last night with my heart racing.
  2. Last night November 25th. it started since Monday. Heart rate was going up, anxiety was through the roof and horrible feeling of doom like in the pit of my stomach and chestS. got to the Er and they check my vitals and bp is 158/95, and 157 bpm. They quickly take me to the back and connect me to machines... ekg is done and it’s okay. chest X-ray is fine, blood work is fine except potassium is kind of low. even though all these tests came back normal. The one thing that worried me is that. My left arm was tingling it got worse when the put the IV in it and then came the moment. My oxy meter was put on my left hand, the results on that hand was 74-84. When I would put it on my right hand I would get normal reading. I brought it up to the doc and 2 nurses and they didn’t care. I’m worried since that arm has been numb. 😞 they sent me home they gave me propranolol and Ativan and they said I should be out until today... it wore off at 3 am I woke up anxious and heart racing. They gave me the meds at 12 am so 3 hours. Is that right?
  3. @cbhaga01 Hope you got your answers 🙂
  4. Been a while! wow. Hello my fellow worriers. I have been through a heck of time since March the last time I posted. Recap: tachycardia episodes landing me in the hospital. will rest of March was hell! It got worse. Along with tachycardia I was getting a whiplash of emotions and thoughts. April it got more worse, I was contemplating ending it all and I would get intrusive thoughts. finally May 9th 2020: the week prior to that date, I was having my heart race with simple tasks, we are talking washing dishes, cooking, folding clothes... those things would cause my heart to easily reach 150s bpm. I became triggered looking at fitbits/smart watches, I would have panic attacks seeeing those, because I would correlate it to that little machine finding something wrong with my heart. So May 9th I go to the store and I see one, it sent my heart racing to 170 bpm, manually counted, it wouldn’t calm down. So I went to the hospital. They gave me ativan thinking it’s panic attack, but it didn’t help. They run tests, and during that time they try three different times to try and lower it with more Ativan and beta blocker with no help. This was 4-5 hours of them trying to calm it down. They get my test results and they see my troponin is elevated, and the doctor said she doesn’t test it often for thyroid function at the ER but that she had two previous patients that week with thyroid issues come in, and that I matched their symptoms. My thyroid was off and they gave me meds for that and finally it slowed my heart rate down. I stayed in the hospital for 5 DAYS. Hyperthyroidism was the diagnosis. they gave me meds for that and within a month my heart was finally feeling better. we struggled to get my levels into normal levels. It was hell the symptoms you get. I swung hyper to hypo. Finally by September I finally got normal results. And November 3rds blood work was normal too. I was feeling fine until the last few weeks I’ve been getting symptoms back. 😞 that’s why my doctor had the bloodwork ordered ASAP and they were in normal range. I was hoping the way I’m feeling was due to that. But nope. im having anxiety. heart is elevated: also I get palps, and skipped beats. short of breath cold intolerance and mentally I’m starting to struggle. I don’t want to get back to March and April me. It was horrible. Everyone around me says it’s just anxiety. is it? Could be. You know for a while after the diagnosis I was happy because I finally had answers to why I felt like crap. And meds helped. And now it’s back to square one 😞 trying to figure out what’s wrong.

  6. Hun you can google my toe hurts and heart attack pops up. 🤪 most likely it is an infection and that can cause what you felt. Try to listen to your doc ask them they are the professionals. Not google.
  7. I was those type of people that you’d see in a tank top and shorts in 40-50 degree weather. at the beginning of winter last year I began to get cold. I couldn’t stand being in the 70s. my feet would freeze so bad it hurt, almost like it hurt my bones, I couldn’t warm up at all until I would take a really hot shower. It peaked really bad one night I couldn’t sleep because my feet hurt so bad, I was wearing socks and had three blankets on top and I was putting my feet on my husband. He tried massaging them with his warm hands nothing. What was causing this? My low carb way of eating and thyroid issues. wouldn’t hurt to see your thyroid levels and also look into what you’re eating.
  8. I worked out real hard a few weekends ago. Worked on my upper back. And the week following just by laying down on my back I would get tingling down my arms. Barely put pressure somewhere on my hands or arms or bra straps dug in I would feel it too. I got adjusted at the chiropractor and it’s gone. You could be dealing with a pinched nerve or something. We need to look at the bigger picture. So you worked out, you could have done a move wrong or not stretched enough. And that caused it. Are you staying hydrated? The thing is think of the smaller things that can be causing you this discomfort. Sometimes it’s something like taking a lil break from some strenuous workout, or making sure you get a good warm up, maybe it’s the way you are sleeping and you find the fix for that. no no aneurysm, you’d be struggling right after it happens. And you would not be typing on here
  9. Don’t google. Save your sanity and just don’t. You’ve had scans and you are good. What is it you feel exactly that make you fear having MS?
  10. Stay away from MS forums. Just last night I exited a group because they posted a lot about suicide this past week. Well guess what last night I had massive suicidal thoughts and I am very depressed right now. there’s no good there. It will just make you have psychosomatic symptoms.

    Spot!

    its All close to each other there I would just think it’s irritated the nerves and lymph nodes in the area.
  12. Hello all!! i am back and I am in a bad place. so heart fears are at an all time high, I ended up in the hospital back in January. They only did ekg because they were pretty sure it was just anxiety. Ekg the first one they freaked out. They always do. For as long as they’ve been doing them they have always done a second or third one after the first. They have to calm me down. Then do it again which makes me fear that it’s inconclusive. They said something about SVTs between them and that was it. I was deemed okay. And sent home. i have been doing low carb healthy fats diet (LCHF). I mean I try to stick to all 100% good fats. I might fall short in some but I limit those. But still I am eating a high fat diet: I fear for my heart. I do this for my diabetes thought since i started my glucose levels are amazing, normal person levels. I fear my arteries are being clogged or maybe I’m low on a certain nutrients like potassium or magnesium. Both heart nutrients. whats wrong with my heart? It started January, I had gone out the night before. And so I started my day late. Had brunch and went outside to play with my dog I was feeling weak in the knees but brushed it off to drinking the night before. I felt short of breath and came inside where I felt like I was going to pass out my heart was beating weird. My husband was starting to leave with two of the kids and I stayed with the other two. I told him what was going on. He said “it’s just anxieties “ .... “you know what to do” and left. I went upstairs and my heart nearly popped out of my chest. And I felt the worst palpitations EVER. I called the ambulance, after I had trouble calling my husband, and called my mom who told me to calm down that it was just anxiety. I got scared really bad so I called 911. The Emts got here and I screamed and yelled I was dying. my kids who where with me, 14 and 7, began to freak out which only made things worse. EMTs told me to sit down and they connected me to EKG, blood pressure cuff, oxygen meter, and they were checking my pulse. When they checked it my heart was starting to calm down so I know that was not the highest reading but they registered it at 168 being the highest. I told them I felt like my heart was about to explode. They quickly checked my bp which they were surprised it was 127/79, I do know that LCHF Also helps lowering bp. I have had a massive attack before and I was heavier and diet was crap back then it was a what similar instance. My heart rate shot up to 170s and my bp registered at 240/110. That time they quickly gave me a shot of Ativan. And I believe they also did a CT scan of the heart. All was clear. That was 6/7 years ago. So 127/79 was freaken amazing compared to the other time. The first ekg they did is where one of the emts said “oh shit” (again has happened at the hospital, always after the first one) told me to calm down and they did two more after that. After they were sure and said something about SVTs they immediately asked if I suffered from anxiety. I said yes and they then went in to do breathing exercises until I calmed down a bit. They didn’t like my heart rate staying at 140 bpm. So they said it would be better if I went to the hospital... they just did another EKG and said it looked good. Doctor came in and said no blood work needed and that I need to learn how to control my anxiety. fast forward a month later. Same thing I felt weird in the morning, weak legs and heart raced. Later in the afternoon I felt the heart racing again. Same thing. This time I managed not to call 911. And now for the last few weeks after hearing some bad news (deaths) I am getting them on the daily. Last night I would say is the worst mentally. I was going through mixed emotions ten seconds or so of madness, ten seconds of sadness, ten of dark suicidal thoughts, then calm, then courage and the cycle would repeat until I felt like I was going crazy then throw in mania. I was crying and wanting to talk. I tried talking to my husband. I honestly want to divorce him after last night. At first I tried talking to him about what’s causing my anxiety and stress, major part is his parents live with us. I also told him how as of late I get suicidal thoughts. His response: “you need to stop this, you can control it. But this needs to stop” ... also the whole entire time I was talking to him he was just rolling his eyes and it felt like he was tired of listening to me talk. So there I am at midnight calling my mom. I was having very dark thoughts. And crying. We talked for a good bit and I was able to calm down and knock out. But at 3 in the morning I Woke up and my heart was racing and skipping beats. With breathing in deeply I was able to slow the heart rate and knock out. Is that prob right there that it is anxiety that with deep breathing I’ve been able to stop the heart symptoms? what about the switch of emotions? I can now see that was when my panic attack started brewing, but I also felt those strong emotions disturbing I wanted to be taken to a psych hospital, I had told my husband in the talk we had. He said no that I have the power to get out of this.... Am I about to loose it? Could my symptoms be of a heart condition? Is there hope for me?
  13. Oh and I get short of breath and dizzy too.
  14. I think maybe because you aren’t eating enough. I’m going through a diet change and I’m not eating like before, so my heart beats strong whenever I do anything. Just lying down I can feel it vibrate and pulse hard through tour my chest nd neck. Are you staying hydrated? That could be it too.
  15. Hey guys! It’s been awhile. I hope everyone is doing well. Ive been having random bouts of hard thumping and tachycardia, sometimes I feel like it comes on when I’m not stressing at all. Do y’all ever get this? I got it a few moments ago. I was cutting onions. I tend to hold my breath when I do. Maybe it was from holding my breath? I don’t know. I need closure on the things I feel I guess I have to know what I’m feeling. But it’s left my chest feeling like this weird buzzing/electric current sensation. These last two weeks, even with a strict diet and lots of water. My glucose levels have been high, and I’ve been sleeping a lot. So maybe something is up with my body? I have lost my insurance again so it’s break the bank visits to doctors appointments. That’s why I haven’t go e in to get seen for this.
