Hello, I am new to this group, so please bare with me.
I am a 21 year old male, and I have recently suffered with a bad case of ITP. Now I am finally on the mend, I have started getting palpitations again.
I used to get them when I was younger quite frequently, and I have been having them on and off for about 4 years now, but I didn't think much to it.
The other day, my girlfriend was lent on my chest, when she noticed I had an irregular heart beat. I went to see the doctor, and they ordered a blood test and an ECG. For once, they were delighted that my bloods came back OK, but my ECG showed some 'abnormalities'.
I have been referred to the hospital to see a Cardiologist on 5th September, which is great, but over the past couple of days, I've been getting some other symptoms which I need some help with.
I have been having the palpitations more and more frequently, and they are stronger than before. I have been having hot spells, feeling sick and lightheaded.
Has anybody else experienced this, and has any idea what I may have?
Thank you for taking your time to read my post, it's much appreciated
