I started getting heart palpitations flutters a few days before Christmas 2017.
Have had the odd one before but not so regular as just before Christmas.Was getting them a few times every hour or so.Really frightened me cause just wasn't expecting to get this.I'm 55 years old.
Went to hospital a few times freaking out over the next few days.
Sent me home saying blood ecg all ok.
My gp put me in verapamil and and that settled the flutters down a little not getting them as regular but still enough to concern me.
Saw cardiologist with holter report he said all good don't worry about them keep taking the verapamil and you'll be fine.
What worries me though Is sometimes I get a flutter then I feel off and I come over in a cold sweat for a about 10 mins is that normal?
Really worried about work and will I manage like I used to? Before the palpitations I've been off work for a month but due back now.
Seeing cardiologist again tomorrow to ask some more questions.
I'm really struggling with these palpitations/flutters.
Thanks for reading my first post and best wishes for everyone.
