Common Questions and Answers about Fainting spells heart palpitations


Avatar n tn Could this be the reason for palpitations? No. 2. I usually get around 10 palpitations where it feels like my heart stops and starts again but last night I was thinking about palpitations when I was watching TV and it starting doing a rythum like this - normal beat, clunk, normal beat, clunk, normal beat, clunk. It did this for about 20 minutes. I have a stethascope and was laying there listing to it to this. Freaks me out. Is this normal???
1102792 tn?1285928860 this is another issue, for some time now i've noticed that at night, usually at night i wake up with sudden muscle weakness, difficulty breathing and weak pulse, and palpitations, i notice my heart beating weakly. this usually resolves when i stand up, what could be the prob, my doctor says its not from my heart but i suspect it is cos it occurs afer prolonged angina or arrhythmia.
Avatar f tn • Ask patients with suspected Lyme disease about cardiac symptoms, including palpitations, chest pain, lightheadedness, fainting, and shortness of breath, and obtain an ECG if indicated; • Ask patients with unexplained heart block about possible exposure to infected ticks; and • Encourage taking personal prevention measures, specifically using tick repellent, conducting daily tick checks, and showering soon after potential tick exposure.
Avatar n tn I'm a 25-year old female who recently had two fainting spells. I also have occasional heart palpatations and low body temperature (around 97.5.) Both times I fainted, I had been sleeping and got up too quickly. I've felt fine both before and after passing out. I've convinced myself I have a horrible heart condition. Do any of these symptoms sound familiar to anyone??
Avatar f tn It doesn't sound like garden variety palpitations to me. The combo of the faint, the heart rate of 39 bpm, and the spells of some kind of odd heartbeat would personally cause me to drag hubby to a cardiologist for a workup. He needs a basic EKG, and since these spells come on unpredictably, you should maybe discuss wearing a Holter monitor for a longer period to see if it might catch what's going on.
Avatar n tn Fainting during arrhythmias/palpitations is always a serious symptom. That being said, you have documented very frequent PVCs during dizzy spells but everything else was normal. PVCs (unlike PACs) tend to lower blood pressure (during the event) because cardiac output with a PVC is lowered compared to a normal heart beat, which the next hard heart beat is unable to fully compensate for. As far as I know, there are two possibilities: 1.
Avatar f tn I have dizziness and fainting spells. Age 47 female. BP was 220/145 now on 120 mg x 3 daily Verapamil BP now averages 160/97. Palpitations not so often pulse rate when sitting or sleeping goes to 158-180 a minute. Afterwards feel breathless & tired and need to urinate for quite a while. A few times a week have really dizzy times and occasionally goes into full faints. Have had 3 episodes of SVT in last 6 months.
Avatar n tn Since the beginning of February I have been suffering fainting and near fainting spells. Sometimes I can feel it coming on (tinitus like sound in my ear, blurred vision, can't hear or speak properly and headaches), sometimes it comes on so fast I can't tell till it's too late (One time I was talking normally to a friend and was feeling fine, then turned around and fell feeling horrible). This happens all the time at work, outside on the street, in the mall, etc.
Avatar n tn Check the heart forum, fainting can be a sign of heart arrhythmia.
1142137 tn?1301916030 Whenever I had an attack I would get very dizzy, sometimes the dizzyness was the only problem, no crazy heart rate just the dizzyness. Then started the crazy heart rate 230 bpm and almost fainting. I didn't really take the bb's as they never were good for me.
Avatar n tn i forgot to mention my heart palpitations aswell.. they happen quite a lot.. my heart just randomly starts racing a lot.. especially a lot during anxiety. it normally happens when im resting/lying down/standing in a spot.
Avatar m tn In fact the Drs prescribed me Xanax and I took one yesterday and it actually CAUSED heart palpitations, albeit was the first time it caused heart palpitations, but with taking it previously I can't say it ever stopped heart palpitations but rather just made me "not care" about the heart palpitations I was experiencing at that time. Another thing I have noticed is that some nights my heart rate and blood pressure drop significantly and I start to feel tired.
Avatar n tn It started off with my face getting really flushed (warm/hot) and me feeling faintish like I'm going to pass out. I've also experienced strange new 'Heart Palpitations' (strong beating) and my heart even hurts and feels hot. Not to mention the new really sharp 'Headaches' which I've never had in my life. Seriously - this is crazy. Up until now I've never been really sick before and now I'm scared. They did a CT-Scan and MRI and came up with nothing (no blood clots or aneurysms).
Avatar n tn Hello, In the last 2 years I have gotten these fainting spells 5 times. Last night was the latest. I wake up in the night, sweating with heart palpitations, bowel movement and nausea. I get up slowly (sitting first for atleast 20-30 seconds) and then walk to the bathroom. 4 out of the 5 times i dont make it to the bathroom, i just faint on my way there. Once i actually got to the toilet bowl and did my thing but afterwards, when i got up, i fainted.
Avatar n tn I checked into the hospital with palpitations, 2 fainting spells, dizziness, and shortness of breath. In 1 out of 5 ECGs (the only one taken immediately after I fainted), they found a Right Bundle Branch Block, which they did not find again on the other 4 ECGs they took. I also had a slightly lower-than-normal Echocardiogram (52% Ejection Quotient). Thyroid functioning, all the blood tests were normal.
Avatar n tn The monitor is supposed to record if anything happens to the heart during an episode weather it is fainting or palpitations or skipping beats,etc. I hope this helps! Good luck to you.
Avatar f tn it was only cos i asked for copy of my notes that i got proof what my heart was doing.ive bn told i might have focus site so they tried to stimulate heart but couldnt.i have also bn told it may be to do with leaking valve and regurgitation.i have moderate leak so i dont think they want to do surgery.im on diazepam 2mgs and i know thats not enough for me but my dr is reluctant to give more.
Avatar n tn With a negative cardiac evaluation, palpitations are benign. I would want to make sure the palpitations do not cause your spells with an event monitor, but after that would pursue anxiolysis and other methods to deal with the stress of your symptoms Look back through the post to see how others have dealt with thier symptoms.
Avatar n tn I do get diarrhea with bad cramps maybe 4 or 5 times a month, but not to the extent of fainting. Both times the fainting/diarrhea attack happened to me, I had just finished eating. The diarrhea lasted about 3-4 days, with some minor rectal bleeding. Also, I've noticed that when I get the "milder" diarrhea attacks, they're usually in the morning, anywhere from 5 min. to an hour after drinking my morning cup of coffee, or after eating lunch.
Avatar n tn The most common symptoms are unexplained fainting spells or near fainting spells, and irregular heart beat. It can be palpitations or skipped beats. It can occure when you excercise. Thats why when you are tested for it, they have you pedal a stationary bike while you are hooked up to all the leads. So it is common with LQTIS to have pvs while excercising. When it hits, it drops you so fast. You don't even have time to call 911 before you are dead.
Avatar f tn The doctors have been focused on her heart that they have missed the big picture she was hypertensive had a fast heart rate, had fainting spells, chest pain, and shortness of breath because she had Pulmonary Hypertension what was wrong with her were the arteries leading from her heart to her lungs. The doctors didn’t diagnose her properly because the symptoms were mimicking events that would make a doctor be more focused on the heart.
Avatar n tn Your wife may be having an arrhythmia (abnormal fast or slow heart rhythm) or vasovagal syncope. An arrhythmia can cause fainting because the heart is unable to supply enough blood to the brain when it's beating too slow or too fast. Arrhythmias are diagnosed from cardiac monitors that can be worn for 1-2 days or for 2-4 weeks. I suspect that if she is having an arrhythmia, it would be a fast rhythm disturbance (called tachycardia) since she responded to beta blockers during her pregnancy.
Avatar n tn Have also had number of dizzy spells and near fainting the last year or so. (Been taking inderal about 13 months) Had a glucose and thyroid test that came back fine. Tilt table test revealed 'neuro cardiogenic syncope' after less than 20 minutes into the test. In the process of following up with a cardiologist on this. Meanwhile doctor said that he believe I have an anxiety problem that is adding the this mix of symptoms.
746058 tn?1248348265 I do not want to sound like a hypochondriac but I am very worried about my heart health. I experienced a near fainting spell with a very rapid heart beat, tingling hands and feet and numbness in my mouth area. My hands and feet were like blocks of ice and very sweaty. This came on very suddenly. I called my Dr and they had me wear a 24 hr holter monitor which unfortunately during I did not have any symptoms.

Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with type 1 pattern on an ajmaline ecg, i have experienced some dizzy spells that pass quickly and palpitations that cause me to cough, but no passing out. My mother has brugada but no symptoms, my aunt also has brugada and history of passing out so has an icd implanted, there is a history of scd in 2nd degree relatives, does this mean im symptomatic or not?? I am lost!!
Avatar n tn i never knew i had acid reflux because i didn't really have heart burn etc. i knew there was something because after a meal i would get palpitations but not everytime, i also had occasional chest discomfort which indicates acid reflex but not all the time. it's just a case of trial and error. try some indigestion meds, give them about a week, change your diet: cut out foods that you feel don't agree with you.
