I went to the emergency room with palpitations.. had an ekg, heart monitoring and low blood sugar test ..all was fine. the doctor recommended to use a halter monitor. i did not go yet.. my most constant symptom is slight hands numbness and felling lightheaded. although the lightheaded feeling is coming and going ... the doctor said it was beacuse I WAS HYPERVENTILATING but i feel the numbness all the time even when I don't feel the palpittations... and worse at night as soon as i try to fall asleep i feel like falling and then start twitching, jerking and my hands are even number.. then i wake up with palpitations.. sometimes i feel the legs fairly numb or weak.
can an irregular heartbeat cause continous numbness in hands and feeling lightheaded or just temporary ? i've been like this for a week.. if nothing is wrong with my heart then i'm having panic atacks.. and is the continuous numbness and ocasional lighthead a different symptom ??
