I'm a fit male, 28years and work for a Defence Force.
I have regular medicals, and am in good shape.
What I'd like to know is if i have a heart issue, some advice, what to expect, and will it effect my job and career?
I'm fairly worried on what the outcome could be.
For some history
I'll start from the start.
Around 2 years ago i got really sick with something i forget what but i noticed with heart palpitations my heart beats were Very irregular. got an ECG done that day and it showed a fast irregular beat with missing 'P' Waves. The doc just said it was because i was sick and it'll correct itself. It Did for now.
Every 4-6 months after i got palpitations that lasted not more then a couple minutes, i didn't worry about it.
Around 5 weeks ago i had what i call another episode. although it lasted a bit over an hour. i thought unusual but wasn't worried.
1 week later another episode but this time lasted for 17 hours. That was it. i went straight to my doc the next day because I'm thinking this isn't normal. That was 4 weeks ago now.
The Docs not sure whats going on, his said it could be Afib or something else so I've been refereed to a cardiologist.
For the last 5 weeks, I've had constant missing beats sometimes 1 per minute and sometimes +10 per minute. I've had double beats. And sometimes my resting heart rates i little bit to high 105+Bpm yesterday.
Generally my rate isn't high, sits between 60-90Bpm.
Im seeing the cardioligist for the first time tomorrow and getting a holter thingy for 24hrs.
Any advice would be great, i look forward to some experienced reply's.
