I havae tachcardia, It all started last March .. I woke up morning and went back to bed and started to feel really weird. All of a sudden my started to get this burning like sensation going accross my chest and into my arms. It moved down to the rest of my body. My hands and feet started to tingle.
Than, no sooner that happened my heart start to palputate real fast. Of course I paniced and thought I was having a heart attack and called 911
In the mean time, it seemed like it took for ever for them to get here. The girl was still on the phone with me. I was praying out loud and then I said to her. I think I am going. My throat was starting to close up. At least that is what it felt like. It was the strangest sensation I had ever have. No sooner I said that, she said, they are in your yard rignt now. I hallard to the mt and they came in. They put the monitor on me and my heart rate was up to 160... They put nito unter my tongue. The spray and pill. Than everything stopped for awhile.
They took me in the ambulance and on the way I had a couple more attacks. Finally I got to the ER and had a couple their. So automatically the put me on Cardizam IV and it keep my heart rate down and my blood pressure finally went back to normal.
I was admitted into the hospital.
They did blood work, x-rays,and CT Scan on my chest. No problems with my lungs. Finally they did a Cath. and it was good.
So they come to the conclusion it was a panic attack. I don't buy that.
Here at home I have had several attacks, but they were mild. And everytime I get one something is different. My head will be light headed, or I can't breathe, or my neck and throat will feel weird. I am now to perinode it isn't funny anymore.
They have me on two beta blockers so my heart doesn't have to work so hard, and also keeping the heart rate down.
I hate taking them, because I did some research and if I remember correctly, it can cause other problems, like CHF if I remember right.
Sorry I wrote so much. ButI wanted to see if you had similar problems, and wanted to compare here.
