Hi folks. I was wondering if anyone ever gets pauses which cause dizziness and if so, have you ever had a pause which seemed much worse than your usual pauses. Monitors have shown I get 2- 5 second pauses. I have never fainted but often feel as if I am about to. Today in work, I was in AF..just the usual..and all of a sudden I got a pause which was absolutely dreadful. my face and hands went numb and I couldn't see for a second or two. i felt worse than i ever have with a pause and am surprised ai didn't faint. I usually don't talk about my arrythmias in work as it is hard for others to understand when one looks completely normal. today though, I shouted out for my colleague who I share an office with as I felt so out of control. my heart then started going extremely fast (and regular!!!) for about 20 seconds. I was so petrified I was shaking and started crying...out of relief when it ended and shock. I know that may sound dramatic but I feel so familiar with my arrythmias that today was outside the norm for me and has scared me. My colleague was wonderful. She said my face and neck were completely white for a couple of minutes. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
