Yesterday morning about 10am I felt funny like I couldn't breathe enough I got up I felt like my legs were weirdly light and I started panicking and drove myself into having a anxiety attack so I calmed myself down by drinking ice water and taking deep breaths I still felt like I wasn't getting enough air so I assumed my iron was low so I took my meds for that and continued drinking water and I felt better. But what's scaring me now is my heart rate has been low all day and night and now as I'm typing, it's been in the 50's and as low as 47 while sitting down or lying down and I'm nervous that my heart is gonna stop beating! It goes up to the 80's & 90's when I'm up moving around but as soon as I sat down it goes right back to 55,54,53,52,51,50,49,48,&47 and I'm scared but I must say I do feel fine I'm not in any pain I'm breathing just fine all I have is a slight headache since yesterday that's it. Can anyone help me?!
Slow heart rate, headache and anxiety - Anxiety Support
My heart rate runs with in the same range of numbers that you have written, during the same activities. I'm hoping it means that my heart is within the normal range. There is a fluctuation of heart rate between activity and rest.
How are things going?
They took blood and checked my vitals and did an ekg everything looked great cent I had low potassium levels
They gave my potassium supplements
Hi Destinyweathers, my daughter takes potassium supplements but when she can't handle the taste of the powder mix, the doctors recommended V8 vegetable juice. It has high amounts of potassium. I hope you are feeling better, it's like magic for my daughter . Stay well.
Thank you ! I did have a hard time swallowing those huge pills so they told me I can break them down but it was even worse with water! I'm definitely going to get v8 I love those...
Also eat bananas because they have a bunch of potassium. I'm glad everything is okay.
