I had palpitations, fast heart rate pale and clammy a couple of days after a dental procedure (Apicectomy) about 4 years ago. Went to A&E and they did lots of tests I was fine according to them nothing wrong with my heart. Basically i have had these episodes ever since another time after having a wisdom tooth out and others just out the blue up until 3 weeks ago these episodes were about once/ twice a year. Fast forward to 3 weeks ago and i have now been to A&E 3 times with super fast heart rate 140 max and also my blood pressure shoots up. They kept me in overnight and discharged me saying must be anxiety and offered me beta blockers. They did lots of blood test and chest X ray which were fine. Im now seeing a cardiologist and have had some more episodes they are happening more frequently now 4-5 times is 3 weeks. I was wondering if anybody has had any experience of their Heart Rhythm problems started after dental surgery of any kind?
