I'll try and keep this short haha because I'm really desperate for some answers or just something!
Anyway, I'm a 19 year old female who has just recently had a baby and ever since I had him, my health has really deteriorated. I get extremely dizzy to the point I'm convinced I'm going to pass out. But the scariest symptom of all is every single day I get episodes of very bad palpitations. It feels like my hearts stops then starts again.
Kind of like thump thump thump skip....THUMP
This sometimes can come with extreme discomfort or pain.
I've had multiple EKG's, an echocardiogram, a halter monitor, and bloods done but it all came back normal. The only thing the doctor said worth noting was my heart has many ectopic beats which he said were benign.
My mental state has really deteriorated with my health as well. Since these episodes have started worsening, I've developed such bad anxiety I cannot leave my house. I've had to move back in with my mother so that if anything happens to me, my baby won't be left alone. It's been incredibly hard to look after my son as I am so extremely unwell, I can barely get out of bed due to these episodes, and my mother has had to be watching him
The doctors have just put it down to anxiety but the frustrating thing is I've only gotten anxiety after my health went to shit. When I first started getting these, I was perfectly fine and happy. I truly in my heart don't believe it's anxiety (though I'm sure anxiety makes it worse) I know what is happening to me is physical. But all the doctors think I'm crazy. They say "your ECG came back fine, so you aren't going to die, it's just anxiety just breathe".
I'm so scared im going to die of heart failure and then my son will go to his father (who is heavily on drugs). But all my tests are coming back normal? I don't know what to do?! I'm at my limit
I'm currently on 30mg of beta blocker, and anxiety medication but it hasn't helped much
Someone please, has anyone had something similar??? Some advice or idea of what it could be if f isn't my heart? I can't keep living like this
