I need help - May 9th 2010, 03:21 AM

I posted a thread about heart palpitations but tonight it's just gotten much worse. I was just lying in bed going to sleep and my heart started slowing down and it got to a point where I thought it was just going to stop. This was about a couple of hours ago and my heart rate just keeps switching from slow to fast. I'm terrified to go to sleep in case it does stop and I die. The doctors don't open until Monday and I just can't wait until then. My heart can't just stop can it?

My heart troubles sort of started around the same time I was switched from the combined pill to the progestegen(sp?) only pill. Can a the contraceptive pill be the cause? I never had anything like this on my other pill and surely this contains the same sort of things.

Would you recommend going to the hospital about this tomorrow? I really want to get it sorted and I can't wait until Monday as I'm too terrified to sleep.

Please, please, please reply. I'm desperate.

Yes yes, go to the hospital about it. And TELL THEM about how you switched pills, since it sounds like that's what the problem is stemming from. Even if it's not, it will give them a lead as to why your heart is being so strange right now. Please don't wait until Monday. You know your body better than anyone else, and if it is scaring you enough that you can't sleep because you're scared something might happen, it's better to go ASAP than wait.

PM if you need anything. Everything will be okay Just relax and try to sleep the best you can. Let me know how the hospital visit goes?

I get heart palpitations sometimes, even when I'm sleeping I'll wake up and my heart will be racing even if I'm not really afraid of anything but if I am anxious overall. The fact that you are afraid could be causing it. Try to calm down or focus on something else... maybe try to fall asleep to a movie or if you cant sleep cuz you feel like laying down makes you think, do something that occupies your mind. I deffinately think you should call the doctor as soon as you can though to make sure it is nothing serious, But you very well could be having panick attacks thinking that something's wrong. Also being too afraid will put more strain on your heart if there is something wrong. Just be calm, and breathe. if you can't sleep and you want somebody to talk to, you can pm me...im usually on real late
