For the past month I have been feeling dizzy and mildly nauseous from time to time. I thought was it was an inner ear problem I.e. Labyrinthitis. Then on Monday I was sat on my settee when I had a feeling of severe nausea and a wave of hot flush swept my body leaving me sweating, disorientated and shaky.
Cut to the chase an ambulance was called and on the way to the hospital I had an other episode, I was hooked up to a monitor and the paramedic said I was bradycardial my heart rate dropped to 33bpm. Once I arrived at the hospital I had no further episodes. I told the doctor these episodes had happened before, the last one about two years ago and eighteen months before that, I thought they was panic attacks.
They took some blood which they said appeared to be fine, the doctor then explained to me that she thought I may have an arrhythmia and that the hospital would write to my GP and arrange for me to wear a monitor for 24 or 48 hours at home.
What I would like to know is I am still feeling dizzy and light headed. Can this bradycardia issue be causing this, even though I only had severe episodes on one day.
My GP said don't be surprised if nothing shows up on the readings as my issues are intermittent. What happens after I have worn the monitor, what happens next?
I have noticed I feel slightly breathless from time to time, not sure if this is anxiety or if it is related to what happened.
Finally have I caused this issue, I eat healthy, low fat, little meat and dairy, has this been caused by previous bad eating habits in the past.
Apologies for asking so many questions, it's a lot to take in at the moment.
