Hi Everyone! I have been housebound for many years now, and let me tell you, it is not easy on every level! But today, the heart... I have had odd heart things from the beginning, but every time I have an EKG, or even a 30-day heart monitor, we find nothing too abnormal. I had three serious episodes where I had heart spasms. My heart beat registered as over 300 beats per minute, but it was as if the heart was not taking a full beat, it just rapidly "half-beated." I swear, I thought I was dying, especially the first time it happened. (The E.R. said it was definitely not a heart attack though, because I did not have specific enzymes and heart patterns afterword.. Something along those lines.) Now, this has not happened again for several years, but I still get a lot of palpitations, and odd sensations in my heart. Still, I am told that my heart is safe and fine. I have gained a LOT of weight over the past year, and I just get so nervous about it all. I was diagnosed with POTS years back, but I still have many questions. I take fish oil (essential fatty acids,) d-ribose and other supplements that supposedly help the heart. But still, I get heart palpitations when I lean forward a lot! I also get them when I have not eaten or consumed much water. I get them sometimes when I laugh, or when I am using the bathroom... I get them a lot. Today, I have had too many to count, and I thought I would come on here and see if any one of you fellow smart and experienced survivors had experiences like this as well... I work hard to think nothing of them, but it still gets scary sometimes. Any thoughts? Thank you!!!!
