I know my heart. Recently I was hospitalized with atrial fibrillation to 180 beats a minute for two hours before they got it back down. Had a few less severe episodes since with them both calming down without medicine after a few hours. 4 heart tests in those two days at the hopsital for the AFibs ( 2 X-Rays, Stress tests and echo tests all said things somehwat okay) Now on aspirin and beta blockers ( these just slow the heart beat ). However, in the last two weeks it seems my heart is jumping and beating irregularly ( just out-of-whack) almost constantly. Even as I type this. It is not painful nor as powerful as those initial atrial fibrillation episodes, but I feel it and it makes me feel stressed in the upper chest area and over-all uncomfortable and anxious while it is happening. I feel these on up into the lower neck. It just won't go away now. I take my pulse by wrist and neck compression but it always comes out 60 TO 70 beats a minute on average. But I know how it feels to have an out-of-whack beating of the heart. aND THIS IS DEFINITELY OUT-OF-WHACK. The strongest periods leave me the weakest. Sometime scarily so. I see a new cardiologist tomorrow. He had an echo ultra sound test done on me last Thursday. The tech couldn't answer any of my questions but I got the impression he felt things looked okay. But, what I want to tell this new doc is that it feels out-of-whack in my heart area all the time. Jumps, jumps and more jumps. And this leaves me weak and anxious...and weirdly my eyes are always tired when this is happening. But, can you have an almost constant irregular beating heart without it beating simply fast and beong in atrial fibrillation? I just want this to go away. I cannot distract myself from it all the time. It makes me stay home all the time. I just cannot carry on a conversation while stopping and gasping with halted breaths when the heart jumps. Also, this leaves me too weak and anxious to do anything physical. Thoughts?
