I have been suffering with these symptoms for 10-11 years I am a 28 yo male, healthy weight, no real medical history. I basically feel a sinking feeling then a big pop and feel a rush of warmth in my feet. No pain, dizzyness etc. 10 years ago these sent me to the ER 3-4 times, nothing ever picked up in hospital. Eventually saw gp ran ekg, ecg, stress, 24 hr Holter no issues although I was never given any results or diagnosis and basically told to relax and toughen up (old school doc). I Moved on and I have had these sensations recurring these last 10-12 years but only perhaps 1-10 a month. Fast forward 11.5 years and I got about 30 in one evening accompanied by an extreme panic attack (June 2017). I have been slowly spiralling downwards over this and have lost 15-20 lbs due to anxiety losing appetite and now getting these 3-15 times a day. My resting hr is 60 bpm lying down 65-70 sitting. I am getting hooked up to a 2 week event monitor next week by my new doc.
I have attempted to listen to my heart and on a bad day purposely trigger one. I was actually able to capture the sound of one I realize how unscientific this is but I was hoping someone could help interpret the sound. The normal lub dub sound however the second part the “dub” if you will was not in normal sync and was much quicker and closer to the lub than the preceding beats. No pause or change in rythym after.
Is anyone able to provide any further guidance and what are the odds given these facts I am going to keel over?
Excercise trgiggers them on occasion especially when out of shape the last several years but did not care until recently.
