Should I be panicking? - January 1st 2013, 01:23 AM

I'm only mildly worried right now, but hope for answers ASAP please?

Okay, when I was hospitalised with the blood clot business, I had both tachicardia and brachicardia (what I mean is, my heart beat would shoot up to 120 set off the alarms, and then plummet to 20 BPMs). Got to the stage where they turned off the alarm, knowing that if anything happened mum would scream! And I couldn't sleep with the damn alarm going off every few minutes and they had other people to worry about other than checking my damn blood pressure.

Anyway, my hearts kind of being a bitch and went from 120, to 78, to 117 then 96 and now hovering at 108. I check my pulse every few minutes to see if it goes back to normal.

Has anyone else had this happen to them? And should I consult my doctor about it? I am afraid of going back to hospital and don't want to seem like a fucking wuss if it's nothing?! Help please, I need it!

Jay.

I've not personally had any experience with this. Although I always say if you're questioning things it doesn't hurt to ask..its better to be safe then sorry. It very well might not be anything to worry about but they could tell you for sure.

I'm not sure, and I'm not an expert, and I know nothing...well, you know how it is.

But here's what I think: there are some things not worth risking, and your health - particularly with organs that are quite important (the heart being one of them) - is one of them.
Go to the Doctor, get it checked out and if nothing's wrong, no harm done. If something is wrong, then it's a good thing you checked.

No-one will count anything against you if you are slightly over-cautious; better safe than sorry.

The problem is, when it comes to my health, I could care less. I know my heart isn't exactly what you'd call "structually sound". I have had chest pain, tightness in breath in the days and weeks before this... and I just don't really want to waste a doctor's time.. Nor worry my mother.
I am sort of independant and think I could deal with it...

Jay.
