Hi, I hope everyone will forgive me posting twice in a week. I will not post again after this. You may remember my question the other day where you thought I had vasovagal syncope when I laughed hard? Your answer made so much sense that I wanted to present another symptom I have to see if you have any insight on it.
I have been seeing a psychologist. Please do not pre-judge me based on this, my symptoms are very specific but no one can explain them. It would seem that for the past 5 years I've had something psych's call "derealization" where my surroundings feel unreal and I feel foggy and lightheaded all the time. This symptom was not bad up until about 2 years ago. 2 years ago, it became so severe that it is severely life altering and I am constnatly in a very very difficult psychological struggle to carry on. At the same time 2 years ago, I started having irregular heartbeats CONSTANTLY where I'd never had any before (many many pvc's and multi pvc's on the Holter). However after a year or so, the irregular beats went away mostly and I'm left with these psych issues.
On some days, I feel very chemically sedated even though I'm on no drug (very sedated, no exaggeration..something very wrong here). Though I'm on no drugs, it feels like I've been given a strong tranquilizer, and on these days my heart beat often lags in the 50's and if I exercise, my heart rate falls within a minute or 2 back into the 50's after I exercise, allt he while I feel very very sedated. Other times, I don't feel sedated, and I have tremendous andrenal reactions to everyday stress....often if I go out my heart rate remains in the 120's all day long.
I have had: Overnight sleep study, MRI of brain, echo of heart, EKG, basic labs and none of these tests revealed anything at all.
I was wondering if you can think of anything? Could I have a vitamin deficiency of some sort? Any ideas please?
