Pressure in chest
Hi,
I was just wondering if anyone has ever felt this before, Sometimes when I get in a car or just sitdown on the couch or something I get alot of pressure in my chest and it feels like the blood is rushing to my head and sometimes it gives me a PVC, I kind of feel like i'm going to pass out because the blood rush to the head and this usually lasts about 5 secs, I just have to close my eyes till it's over. I know this sounds like anxiety but i've had massive anxiety attacks since I was 13 and I know what a anxiety attack is, and this is definately not one. Does this sound like Blood Pressure issues? I know once I tell my cardiologist about this, this week he's gonna write it off as anxiety.

Hey! I just wanted to let you know...that you're NOT alone! I too get that "pressurized" feeling....it feels like (to me, anyway) that I'm being strangled...or my oxygen supply is being cut off.....and as far as I'm concerned it wasn't a panic attack...I too have had "them" since I was 13....go figure....
And when I have these "episodes" my heart starts beating all irregular...scares me....but of course my cardiologists says it's a PANIC ATTACK....whatever....I know my body...and it is frustrating...especially when you have no idea when it's going to happen again or why nobody believes you!!!
Well, your NOT alone and if YOU figure this out....gimme a holler...lol

Woo thanks for the reply lol i've been so stressed out these past 2 weeks waiting for my cardiologist apt, I've also had this for about 3 years but never thought anything of it until my PVC's came along. When this happens I feel like im about to explode and my heart beats irregular too almost like it's beating kind of slow but very hard and I get a HUGE head rush or something I don't know if the blood rushes to my head or it's not getting enough blood lol, it's wierd and I also get it when I kneel down, this doesn't happen everytime I sit down just occasionally, I think it might be from stress/blood pressure issues but i'm not sure, gonna ask my doc about it this week and i'll send you a message if we get it figured out.

Hi, are you a very tall person?  Our Dr. told our son, he gets this also, this can happen when you are a tall person and it takes longer for the blood to get from one place to the other.  Just wondering.  He is 6'2".  Not extremely tall.  Good Luck.

It would be great if it is(the problem) because of your height....but I doubt if it's mine...I'm 5'3"....yeah I know the feelin about the "head rush"....it's as if I get over heated also...my cousin who has witnessed this...says I look really flushed....it's like "duh"....you try being "strangled"....lol....and you know if this is "anxiety"....why does my heart start beating all funky...it's NOT fast and it's NOT a normal sinus rhythm...but the experts think they know...I wish it would happen to one of them....

Well I don't think it is the whole height thing, because there's just no way every (or most) tall people feel this, it's just a horrible feeling. I basically avoid kneeling down to the ground because of it. Yeah i'm with you on that, I wish they could just feel like one episode of pvc's or this, and know what it's like.
