Ugh! Doctors! I spent FIVE days in the hospital once with a crazy raging fever & all kinds of other issues and the doctor’s picked their noses and said, “its an infection. We don’t know where it is or what’s infected, but yup; it’s an infection.” The infectious disease specialist woke me up EVERY night between 2-4am b/c that’s when he did my rounds. Apparently he was a vampire…

I’m sorry your heart’s feeling wonky. I hope you get more satisfying (and reassuring) answers on Wednesday.

Hey, toots. I’m glad you’re ‘okay’ because I’ve been worrying over here like a freak show. Not only because of you, but because that EXACT same thing happens to me. All the sudden, like when I’m laying down or something, my heart will beat REALLY hard, only once or twice, then it seems to be normal again (that is what you described, right?). And then it will do it again. Only, I can’t go to the ER, or doctor, or anything. So, I’m hanging on for dear-self-diagnosis-life. And, of course, also to make sure my Angie is going to be okay.

I love you, butt-loads.

I hope you feel better soon. In April I went in with similar symptoms (only, I was forced by my fiance and coworkers…) I’ve since had every cardiac and pulmonary test they have but not reason for my “exertion related hypoxia” (fancy words for: when I move around, I don’t absorb oxygen in my bloodstream.)

Hopefully, they figure out what’s wrong with you sooner… and you get to feeling all better and stuff.

31 Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] July 19, 2010 at 12:27 am

that’s totally suck-worthy. have to say, i hope i don’t have that cause then i’d be forced to never move around again.

I know you’re just dying to hear about other people’s crazy-ass heart problem stories, so I’ll give you the “short-version” of mine. (Beware, I don’t really know how to do the short version.)
I passed out at work one day for about 5 minutes. They wouldn’t let me come back without a dr. note so I had to go to the ER of my super small and well known people killer hospital to get the ok. (Because I was so in denial that passing out at your desk was anything more than normal. duh.) They said, oh you’re fine. We see nothing wrong with that. Go on back to the grindstone.

Weeks of passing out at inopportune times and three trips to the ER later… I went to a real cardiologist who merely said “you have a left blocked bundle branch and being the young and *super fit and sexy* (yah right) woman you are, you’ll be okey dokey.”

One year + an almost pacemaker + a whole array of crazy drugs they tried to put me on later, I still have no idea what a freaking blocked left bundle branch is and can’t get a freaking straight answer.

The moral of my story is, don’t take no shit till they fix ya!

Lots of happy Oprah thoughts to you and take care of yourself! PS- I’m sure it’s fine if you stick to the red wines, those are supposed to be good for the ticker!

I had that happen a long time ago and they thought it could have been a result of my sleep apnea. Once that went away, so did the occasionally irregularity.

I hope you get some answers soon. Feel better.

I’ve been having similar issues. I called the doctor’s office a couple weeks ago with chest pains. The nurse was all, “You should go to the emergency room NOW.” But being me, I said, “Nah, I don’t feel like I’m dying. Can you fit me in today?”

Yeah, and they still don’t know what the problem is.

Similar thing happened to me last fall (numbness down my arm was my problem) and I ended up spending one night in cardio care. Worst 23 hours of my life. The diagnosis? High blood pressure. WHICH THEY KNEW FIVE MINUTES AFTER I ARRIVED.

Hospitals suck. Hope you feel better soon and get more answers on Wednesday.

I did not read all the other comments and I am sure this was already thrown out there. Just in case it wasn’t, did they consider or look into the possibility of it being an anxiety attack? That can cause some of the same symptoms you mentioned.
