Since my first and only Afib episode after taking a few benedryl, I've been doing great! Haven't had any complications and even decided to test caffeine and alcohol to see if this may have been a trigger for my Afib. Neither were triggers it appears and life has gone on as if I never had that Afib Episode. So still have zero idea as to what caused my afib episode.
If you read my last post you'd know that I'm 28, BMI of 25, no prior history of ANY health issues, eat a very healthy diet as I compete in fitness comps, and work out 5-6 days a week plus yoga. Also my Resting heart rate is usually around 57-60 BPM.
However, in the last couple weeks, I've been getting this random fluttering/shock feeling in my sternum that last less than a second however it worries me a little bit. My Cardiologist ran a ECG, EKG, Stress Test, Echocardiogram, and CBC; all of which came back normal and was told "you have a very healthy heart." I set up another appointment which he had me wear a holtor monitor for a week and even though the sensation happened a few times while wearing the Holtor monitor, he said my Rhythm came back 100% normal and thinks this may not be something to do with my heart. He did say this may be an anxiety disorder.
Usually this sensation comes when I'm at rest and my heart rate is low. Also note, there is no pain, just a flutting/shock feeling and I am not currently on any meds as my Cardiologist doesnt see a need for them.
Has anyone else experiences these symptoms?
