Hi , Im new to all of this, and whilst i havnt been exactly diagnosed yet !, i have experienced a few episodes of perhaps not quite dizzy spells but feeing hot with palpitations, with a feeling i may blackout, these feelings last only seconds and can leave me with a sore head and neck also wind... and have happened about 4 times , they have felt a bit like sunstroke which ive a had a couple of times over the years on holiday, because i really dont drink enough water, and i dont at home either !!. i can get up in the morning take my losec with a small amount of water then work for 9 hours without drinking anything at all ( i can hear you all screaming) perhaps having a small glass of water at lunch time, 2 weeks ago i was at work i hadnt felt well but just had a cold i suddenly felt i would pass out l took a bit longer to recover but carried on, once i had finished work i walked home, well i tried to walk home feeling faint and ill with every few steps, i managed to get to my doctor who thankfully is close by, and was given an ecg which was abnormal bpm were 155 i was sent to hospital and was in for two days, the doctor mentioned AF i have never heard of it before, she called the hospital to say i was coming and she mentioned this to them, next day i was told i had flu and the infection had caused the Af, i had a check up today at Gp, she said because i have had palpatations before i may have AF but at the moment my heartbeat is fine, im on the mend from the flu still feeling tired, but im due to go to Athens on the 22nd , my Gp just said oh well go and take it easy and if it happens again there are hospitals in Athens !! and said i shouldnt have any alcohol incase it makes my heart race again. so do i go on holiday for 4 nights or should i cancel as i feel a bit scared this may happen again.? thanks for reading and sorry for droaning on ! .
