i am currently undergoing testing for cushings or an adrenal problem and was wondering - i have been having episodes where all of a sudden my heart rate and bp drop dramatically and i feel like im gonna pass out (once i did), then my heart starts beating at 180 + beats per minute - also i started having heart palps and actually sometimes feel like my heart stops or slows very slow for a second it makes me woozy, - could the adrenal problem cause my heart rythym to mess up?
As the adrenal gland is the source of s adrenaline in one's system, I suspect if yours is producing extra adrenaline, it could cause sudden increases in you heart rate. This could, I think, cause other heart arrhythmia.
