I suffer from anxiety myself so excuse me as I'm in panic mode !Today my 19 year old son went to the doctors as he has been experiencing chest pains and his heart has been racing. We have a finger pulse monitor and sometimes whilst he is sat still his heart is doing 130bpm.
The doctors surgery wouldn't allow me in due to covid19 so he went in on his own to have an ecg. I dont know the outcome of the ecg other than them telling him he has atrial fibrillation and will need to have a chest xray, blood tests, and to see a cardiologist.
I have so many questions and am so worried.
My son has been having pains and has passed out several times during the last year and has had previous Ecg's which have all been fine. Can it just start like this and not show up ?
Had anyone else experienced this at such a young age ?
Thank you from a worried mum
