Get Shredded!
So every now and then I'll get like a flutter in my chest almost like a jolt and turns into heart palpitations. Not sure if right word but my heart beats super fast. Can feel it beating out of my chest. Gets to over 200 to 250 bpm. Feel little lightheaded and maybe little achy jaw. Been happening for as long as I can remember prob around 12 years old. Last a few minutes sometimes 30 minutes. Brought it up to my Dr but she didn't seem concerned. But it still sketches me out. Not sure it it like skips a beat here and there it's hard to tell. Any help would be appreciated. Just had an episode at work lasted about an hour of over 200 bpm. Back to resting 60bpm now.

Do you see a cardiologist? Or do you see a normal Primary Care?

If you don’t have a cardiologist I would suggest to get one because that wouldn’t be okay with me either brossif…

Yea going to see one this week hopefully. But after researching seems like it's something called svt. Hoping others will chime in.

Sounds like A-fib. Google a-fib and I bet it describes what your experiencing. It needs address by a cardiologist. Sometimes with medication and sometimes they will go in and do a cardiac ablation and burn certain spots on the heart to keep it from happening. Given a choice between the 2 if an actual doctor.says it's a-fib (I am not a doctor) then I'd go for the cardiac ablation so you're not on medication long term.

Definitely go see a cardiologist. They will put you on a heart monitor that you will wear for a number of days at home, job etc. It will record all your heart data and show them exactly what's going on.

The heart monitors are fancy now and Bluetooth so they usually aren't this big bulky thing with wires anymore. It's a sticker that goes on your chest that you hardly notice is there then you carry the reciever in your pocket.

What he is saying ^^^

i just did the heart monitor for 60 days… it’s basically a cell phone that you have to bring with you at all times and it comes with these sticky pads that you plug in a small device… to which it sends real time data back to the cell phone/monitor. If an event happens you may push the button on the device and log it… what you were feeling/how it felt/what symptom you experienced, ect.

Either way man good luck and hopefully you get it checked out and it’s nothing serious.

Take it from someone who has had lifelong palpitations and seen a cardiologist for it -- if you told you're doctor that you're regularly hitting 200-250 bpm, and she shrugged it off, get a new doctor. It might be nothing, but it might be serious. Seeing a cardiologist is the only way to know. Tachycardia and palpitations run in my family. My grandmother had it, my mother has it, my aunt had it, and I have it. Two of those people needed medication to save their lives. I know cardiologists are expensive... God knows they are... but if they give you good news, you'll be glad to have the peace of mind, and if it does turn out to be something bad, you'll be glad you know because this kind of thing is very treatable.

Yrs ago I pushed my HR up to 180..but I've always had a strong heart..Have the Stress Test Hospital record..But the minute I was at 180,I hurt for days..
Nothing normal about a HR at 200 plus..

Trash can that Dr......

It's crap care like that..has become the Norm..I hate the Medical Community,even before the Covid circus..Yes there are some good ones out there but you to put up with the entitled staff then..

I know a red flag when I hear or see IT,from those demi-gods..I've called many on their shit and they despise the confrontation.."how dare you" Crap...
Well..since I'm paying this round,we'll do it my Way..Not Yours..

A piece of knowledge:
Learn what those numbers mean on labs..
Moreover,learn how naturally to go about adjusting them..
