So on Monday when waking I felt quite dizzy and since I was half awake only I think I had some kind of fluttery palp, in any case it set me back a lot this week raised my anxiety levels, along with my pulse rate and sometimes my blood pressure (though not that bad on the latter). I will see a cardiologist on Monday morning for reassurance, I hope. This morning I woke up again with a fast pulse as I have every morning this week (its around the 90s range I think) and I kept getting skipped beats--with my head on the pillow I could hear my heart beat and also I felt my wrist and could notice when it would just stop and start up again. I'm guessing those are PVCs and I know they are generally harmless but they are annoying and not conducive to a good rest. They seem to abate sometime later on and haven't been bothersome since I got up, or at least I am not noticing many of them. I know that my ventricles are a bit slow to relax which from what I understand is not strange for someone over 50 like myself, and I spoke to a cardiologist (not the one I am going to see, but one who was visiting the place where I work) and he said its a totally normal finding for someone in their fifties. That was comforting, and so far as I know there aren't any other issues with my heart, and other than some mild plaque in my carotid arteries (again an aging thing, I do take Lipitor so I was kind of surprised I even had a mild version of it since my cholesterol has been well controlled on Lipitor and my anxiety/depression issue caused me to lose about 25 lbs rather quickly when it began over a year and a half ago, and I have maintained that weight more or less since, and that has improved my sugar and cholesterol numbers even more. I sometimes wonder if the meds I am on are aggravating the palps (less than 15 mg remeron, 50 pristiq, 1 mg of klonopin or slightly more on really bad days) or it is just anxiety. The dizzy feeling could be something ear related, it is rare and I have to pay more attention the next time it happens, only seems to happen when I lay down or am laying down. Has anyone else had something like this where its worse in the morning or laying down and did it finally go away when you got better? I did have a rough week but I did function well in spite of it all.
