I know that the info I'm giving here is scarce at best, but at this juncture, its all I have to go on.
Started about 10 years ago, with a "Flub-Bub" or quick Double Heartbeat about 4X a year
Approx. 5 years ago, it increased to about 165 a Day, but no lightheaded/Chest pains ect.
Saw a Cardiologist about 4 years ago.
After Stress Tests and Ultra Sound, I was told "Not to worry,
because Millions of People Have it", (but never got a Diagnosis/Name).
Recently, (over the past 2 weeks or so), I've had about 3 irregular Heartbeats, followed by lightheaded, and a slight feeling of Panic, flushed Face.
No Chest/Arm pains, but very scary, as I hadn't experienced this before.
Type 1 Diabetic 42 years.
Asthma (under Control)
Take Blood Pressure Meds/Cholesterol (off label) for Statin effect for Liver/Kidneys.
Blood Pressure/Cholesterol is Good.
Low Thyroid (on Meds)
Low Testosterone (on Meds)
Low B-12 (on Meds)
I've heard that Low B-12 can also cause Irregular Heartbeats,
and at this juncture in my Life, I am under a Tremendace amount of Stress.
Now the reason I haven't gone back to my Cardiologist is because
of a job loss, we have no Health Insurance.
I'm trying to "Ride This Out" until I can get some Insurance to see my Doctor.
Interesting thing is, that these episodes tend to Come/Go.
I can have 3-5 within 2 days, and then be fine for 6 Months, without any issues/episodes.
Once in awhile I get the irregular Heartbeats, and they are no big deal, but then once in awhile, I get ones that only last for about 2-3 seconds and within 30 seconds I'm feeling Flushed, Panicked, lightheaded (no passing out).
These episodes pass, within seconds but the symptoms, weak, a sense of "just not feeling right", can hang on for 3-4 hours, or be gone in as little as 20 Minutes.
I know there's no substitution for a Cardiologist, but needed to "Vent" more than anything.
My Dad had to have "Heart Valve Replacement Surgery" at, 60 years old.
I'm afraid I might have to go through the same thing, and not feeling very good about that.
