Heart is fine right now....it only lasted about a mintue...maybe less.
No, I had no chest pain or squeezing but it made me feel very panicky until I talked myself down and went back to getting the kids ready for bed. I am just really tense right now but trying to relax.
Prior to this all.....I was sitting on my neighbor's front porch...we had just taken a walk for about 30 minutes, which we do many nights and then we sat talking for about 30 minutes. Then I called the children to go inside and had just walked in with them. The phone started ringing and I grabbed it to answer it as I headed down the basement stairs to get to my husband and dog, who was whining and he was calling me to do something with her. She just had surgery yesterday. (the dog did). On the phone was my mother, calling to get my husband to come kill a snake that was on her fence, at her house. As I was still talking to her and telling him that he needed to go there to take care of the snake, my heart started to pound really hard and really fast. I was carrying the dog (20 pounds) up the stairs and talking to my mother on the phone at the same time, when the poounding happened.
That answer actually made me relax some, almost immediately! I know that I have had heart flutterings and palpitations before, but years ago. I think the dizziness from this morning and the fact that I have kind of had a crampy and upset stomach too are what made this palpitation episode particularly scary, because I figured they were all related. I haven't had any diarrhea or vomiting but have had this nauseous feeling and the short boughts of dizziness and felt a little out of it, the past few days. Do you think that those things are indicative of a virus and also unrelated to the heart pounding?
Well, yes, I did work in the sun for hours on Sunday and I had taken the kids to the pool for like 4 hours on Saturday, in the 90* heat, so I suppose a little dehydration could be contributing to that.
When you say the dizziness and feeling out of it could be related to anything, you are saying that those symptoms are not really anything to worry about, right? I don't think I have ever been dizzy before, except these few times this week, since I was a kid and spun around to make myself dizzy!
In case you couldn't tell, I really start to worry when I have anything strange healthwise that comes up.....I never did that before I had children. I don't remember even being sick very many times before having kids, but now if I get anything, I get scared that I won't be able to take care of them or help them and I am worried that whatever I have may be serious..
