for the past 3 years i have been having an irregular heartbeats during sex. my heartbeat slows down significanty during and returns to normal after sex. it has been barely managable until 4 months ago where the severity of it has become worse, weakness short of breath and chest pains after sex.
i have had stress test and ecg 3 years ago but nothing since it has gotten worse, i am currently waiting to see a cardiologist but the appointment is weeks away, any help or suggestions would be great
I do think you should be checked out by the cardio. My heart skips and flutters during sex but not to the degree you've mentioned. The chest and arm pains may turn out to be non-cardiac in nature. What's interesting is that your HR slows down rather than speeds up. Most folks get excited when they make whoopee :-)
