After a mostly sleepless night, I woke with a rapid heart beat. As I sat up it went into a massively fast beat ( 140) It felt like a large jelly in my chest careering all over the place , and my chest was actually shaking .. I was waiting to die any minute. I told my husband to call an ambulance , he suggested waiting a bit , got me a glass of iced water, and gave me another 1.25 bisoprol . After a nightmare 10 minutes it started to slow.. I'm now back to 78 bpm. and tearful , frightened to move . It was almost worse than the first episode which put me in hospital, because then I had help around me . I have stayed in bed to rest ) have a fluey cold also , but now anxious in case it has damaged my heart. I've read on your posts that it won't kill me /-- but that's gone out the window . I don't know if I should get up and try to have a normal day . My head isn't normal right now Have dithered over taking our holiday , decided to go , after all your good advice , but now feel back to square one with that. What would I do if it happened on the plane?
My poor family are so caring, but it's hard for them to make the right decision when this happens I didn't expect to have such a frightening attack so soon after the first one and diagnosis . I did read that a virus can increase the risk .
Thank you , Janna
