I’ve been experiencing frequent palpitations, skipped and miss beats for several months now. I have had many ecgs including a 24 hour one which just shown sinus tachycardia therefore my GP was happy to put it down to anxiety.
The first couple of days of April this year I started experiencing a sort of dropping sensation like I was going to faint. On the 5th April I got really dizzy and fainted and my heart rate was around 180bpm I attended a&e and my ecg shown sinus tachycardia. They suggested I have a longer ecg and echo and that I may have SVT, but my gp said this wasn’t necessary.
I had another episode exactly like this on the 5th May this year and attended a&e again, ecg shown the same. The doctor suggested it was anxiety not SVT and just gave me propranolol.
It is now the 27th May and I am starting to experience the same dropping sensation like I’m going to faint and I am afraid I’m going to have another episode of palpitations.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this or does anyone have any clue what I should do? I’m terrified, many thanks
