I have experienced what you report.
There are a number of heart issues that can give you these symptoms, and the only way I know of that these symptoms can be recorded is to wear a monitor for a period of time. In my case, what is called A-fib was discovered. Wearing a monitor for a week or so isn't fun, but I'd ask for it. Almost everyone has what are called PACs , but I'm betting you have something else. Like most people, I have PACs, but the trip-hammer symptoms are suggestive of a problem that could lead to a stroke. I'd suggest asking for a heart monitor that you would wear for an extended period of time, at least 24 hours. An EKG only reports your heart for eight seconds.
Hope this helps, keep us informed.
I to have had very fast heart beats, many times in the past. I also have PAC/ PVC which is heart flutters / skips etc.
But my heart would get up to 240 beats a min and it was very scary I wore the heart monitor and it show the 240 , I was put on a small bête blocker and have not had a problem with fast beats in 15 years, if I did I could take a half of pill and it would slow it down, so go see a cardio dr and get peace of mine and meds if you need them.
You could have sleep apnea. Have it checked out.
thanks for the replies. do your elevated heart rates happen during sleep? that seems to be the only time mine happen
That might be the time that you notice them. When I wore a monitor, it showed that they woke me up in my sleep, but I didn't notice them when they occured during my work. Like many people, I had a stressful job, so the fast heart beats blended into the fabric of my life.
Occupant suggests it could be sleep apnea... I suggest you ask for a several day heart monitor test.
Do keep us informed.
well the thing is when my heart beats that fast i can feel it and hear so fast and loud, if it was happening during the day i would deffinitly notice it.
yeah once i get on insurance ill have to see a caridologist..thanks
