    I've had all of these issues and then some. Long story short, what saved my life was:

    - coenzyme q10
    - L carnitine
    - Magnesium
    - D ribose

    All suggestions by Dr Stephen Sinatra.

    At bare minimum a holter monitor is required to get a handle on Amy's problem and catch the racing heart, as it happens.

    I have had weird heart things happen if I drink so much as half a cup of coffee and take a decongestant with ephedrine in it. It just seems to throw my heart out of joint! LOL. My heart will quit beating normally and flutter for about 5 seconds--like it is losing it's mind, if it had one, and then just stop for about 10 seconds.

    I have actually been lying in bed and thought, "Hey, right now I am almost technically dead!" Cool. For some reason it has never scared me. What happens next is called a compensatory beat or two, where the heart literally restarts with a bang! The whole experience is very interesting and I have grown to love the Big Bang--both the beginning of our part of reality and my heart.

    I don't think this is a serious problem at all, but I can understand anyone freaking out if they experienced their heart stop for like 10 seconds.

    I wonder if Amy has any of these symptoms. I don't know if they are associated with racing heart or not.

    Oh btw, watch the potassium. You can get too much.

    Smile Re: Heart problems and arrhythmias

    Twenty five years ago, I had a few weeks in my life of arrhythmia. It was a terrifying feeling when your heart was behaving in such an odd manor. I went to my doctor and fortunately he asked me some good questions about my diet, including if I was consuming products that contained aspartame. I had no idea what that was. He explained that diet soft drinks contained it and guess what, I had just gave up regular soft drinks for Diet Coke. I have avoided aspartame and other artificial diet products ever since and never experienced arrhythmia again.

    Arrhythmias have many causes. For atrial fibrillation, ablation works only when the problem is intrinsic to the heart, otherwise the heart "remodels" itself again in a few months. If the problem is not intrinsic, it is extrinsic and can be either sympathetic, or vagal or some combination of both. If sympathetic, they have meds or people do mindfulness meditation or something to stimulate vagal tone. If vagal, then ablation doesn't work well, and the meditation has to do somewhat the opposite, and the meds don't work. They sometimes use pacemakers -- the heart goes slow before it goes fast. Meditation that is both strenuous and calming can work if done long enough.

    All of that is something that requires tests, the post from AutumnW about the Holter monitor (or a Zio patch is even better). A forewarning: American doctors do not like to think about external stimuli to the heart being a factor, so you may need to consult someone else, or show up to the appointment ready to ask about it.

    Ask Amy if she is sensitive to weather changes 💨

    Jayke is completely right about the influence of quantified EM fields,
    both natural and artificial ones but those installed by humans can cause lots of trouble.

    I’m a bit like rain frog myself these days but when I was young I’d not mind anything at all. When all the adults complained of weather pressure, I always thought what a fuss, it can’t feel so bad.
    Now the days before storms and big rains my body can feel half dead 😀
    I know it’s the atmospheric pressure and accumulation of super charged particles in the atmosphere causing it and the moment storm and rain start I feel huge relieve.
    Love weather, especially the big one but not electric storms.

    On funny note, when I was a kid I feared electricity so much I treated it with great respect. Twenty years later I know it’s half that dangerous than I considered it to be but still not good for health.
    One time an orthopaedist prescribed combination of massage and electro massage for my neck pain, whatever. It turned to be complete waste of time because the massage nurses though paid by medical insurance gave the “massage” the way your friend would do it through lunch break ( but we figured out they took patients privately for proper massages if they payed them). The e-massage though gentle made me sick and I knew it’s going to. So I did not go there twice.


    Also, wearing light cloth, cottons etc. prevent overheating, make sure there’s plenty of fresh air available around you.
    I used to sleep with one window open even in winter, always felt good that way but most people say they would catch a cold.
    Stable temperatures are recommended.

    no-ones blood pressure is consistent during the entire day; my values range per day between 165/85 (slightly bad) to 115/53 (good)-

    so don't take any one single medical test taken during a few minutes of our lives as being cemented in stone as a prognosis for the rest of our lives- there are always many variables-

    Yes and I find the notorious tonometer BP readings quite insufficient. For many reasons, the pressure can differ in different parts of body which does not show without specialised equipment.
    Although my BP was always in norm or low and sometimes I’d faint for it when growing up, if I get stressed up my intracranial pressure has to be times higher than a norm.
    It’s little strange feel having different BPs in different body parts but again,
    breathing exercises, peace and harmony and long walks help to harmonise this.

    My mum had a notoriety for low blood pressure but she’d live with it. Her last “normal” was 90/60. One time she was admitted to hospital (for more serious issues), she was still awake and could support herself with something like 50/40,
    then it went down to undetectable 😇 She was medical professional and kept arguing with the doctors on every such occasion. So it took them some time to convince her to get on bed. She kept telling them “I’m still good, this is how I’m, make me some tea”.

    Pay attention to the wind!

    Sounds a little crazy but my girlfriend has this problem. She had all the checks done with the doctors, which came back all clear.

    Since I was studying astrology for alchemy purposes anyway, we started tracking when she’d have episodes in relation to the planets and solar weather patterns. In every instance, within 2-3 days after the episode, there’d be strong gales and gusts of wind in the local weather.

    I can only conclude that the heart is linked to the sun in some energetic way, and people who are sensitive or empathic enough have hearts that act like barometers for sudden changes in solar weather. Pretty sure this is one of the main reasons ancient cultures paid so much reverence to astrology. You don’t build pyramid structures all over the world just out of curiosity. That level of motivation is more from worrying if you might die at any random moment or not. Astrology helps to see what space weather might be on the horizon which enables you to keep grounded and prepared.

    Assuming there’s no underlying medical conditions, which should absolutely be tested for. If the tests come back all clear — then congratulations — your friend is basically a shaman (with all the existential challenges and worries that might unfortunately bring).

    There’s a Facebook page my girlfriend uses, think it’s this one, Ascension Symptoms Support Group. It’s amazing how many people experience the same symptoms all across the globe at the same time. I’ve seen enough to convince me that medical astrology has a very real and very scientific basis to it at least.
    I don't get hot like I used to, as when I was young, I just seem to feel an electrostatic overload from the sun, going dizzy and almost passing out.
    I'm on blood pressure tabs now, so hopefully stable.

    But I do seem to feel the Sun's energy as electro not heat.

    Jayke, I also live under the flight path of a major Airport 'Heathrow' London.
    I'm a simple easy going guy that is very upset/sad with the worlds hidden controllers!
    We need LEADERS who bat from the HEART!

    My daughter has cardiomyopathy, took awhile to get an accurate diagnosis, lots of test were done by a heart specialist, we thought for several years that it was panic attacks. The rapid heart rate caused her to also get
    an enlarged heart. I think I would see a heart specialist Amy, and let them check you out really well. It's assumed by the heart specialist that her condition was caused by some sort of virus. Hope you can get to the bottom of your problem and be able to get the help you need.

    Amy's wondering if anyone else has (or had!) these kinds of issues, and how they've handled them. She's extremely bright, reads many Avalon threads, and is open to any advice of any kind.
    I've had similar issues in the past, but I've always sourced them to chemical food additives. When I smoked, commercial cigarettes sometimes did the same thing, why I quit.

    A heart arrhythmias can be caused by a muscle reflux issue from the stomach. It assimilates all the symptoms of a fluttering heart problem.if your belching alot feeling sick it's likely the cause

    Whoa.

    I'm 24.

    I have the EXACT same issue.

    Like, exact. I haven't seen a doctor yet, because $$$, and covid.

    But these last few months, all of a sudden, totally randomly, my heart rate will just skyrocket. Initially the telltale sign would be heart palpitations/fluttering in my chest. Again, totally at random, and it would last just a few seconds. Very alarming.

    It started happening frequently enough that I began to worry, but it made no sense, because I have no known heart conditions. During annual physicals, doctors would give me a clean bill of health, minus a few deficiencies and elevated prolactin levels (I have a benign pituitary tumor).

    After research, I figured it was percaditis, which is inflammation of a sack of fluid in the heart valve, usually following an infection. It made sense, since I had gotten sick as a dog with the flu (maybe corona?) in December, and my issues started not too long after that.

    The flutters eventually stopped, but now, I have a weirdly high resting heart rate (90-140). For a while I would check it on the hour, and it would jump around between the 90s and 130s totally at random/without cause.

    I chalked it up to anxiety/stress combined with a sedentary lifestyle, but now I wonder.

    Maybe it's a weird side effect of the "asymptomatic" covid carriers?

    Or maybe it's something else entirely.

    Sounds like flutters and high heart rate are two different things. The high resting heart rate could be psychological. Or even psychic. My resting heart rate went way up during the 1979 WW3 scare when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan.

    Bill, I was born with a heart murmur and I have consistently a very irregular heart rate. When I was a cardiac nurse the residents would hook me up to a monitor and did their omg's. But hey 73 yrs later I keep pumping. Here is what I know. Palpitations with tachy can be from various reasons even if while just at rest or lying down. Have Amy check these things, a nutritionist or naturopath that can muscle test for cardiac supplements. Good ones are Cardioplus, Cardiotrophin, Vasculin Cataplex E2 or E. These work. But what stopped two instances immediately of palpitation for me was Relax Tone homeopathics from Energetix in Atlanta. Secondly, she may have an out of control thyroid issue. We see that frequently with our patients. Thirdly, and not so uncommon, parasites. True story, I had parasites that were hidden and went for my heart. As soon as I began nutritional therapy with parasite management, heart went back to normal. My last comment is avoiding caffeine or energy drinks or a lot of dark chocolate. All can be helped.

    Hi Bill,
    just some more thoughts:
    Quote Posted by Bill Ryan, on behalf of Amy (here)
    I do take medication, and also it's a normal thing in my family, just few months ago my older cousin died because of heart illness, so did my great uncle around 4 years ago, and so did my uncle around 9 years ago, it's just a family thing.
    Could you ask Amy what medication she takes?

    If she takes ACE blockers/inhibitors (blood pressure meds) those disturb the potassium in her body and could be the reason for her arrhythmia. (and if she is on this med it could be dangerous to take additional potassium. So first step would be to quit/change the bloodpressure med and than fix her electrolytes).

    Has lipoprotein alpha been tested?

    Because her symptoms start so suddenly her spine could be the cause (her nervous system might get triggert when she makes "a wrong move" (sorry, I don't know how to explain this better).
    The tingling/pins could support that cause.
    An osteopath or chiropractic might help her to find out (if her posture is out of balance..)
    In that case the breathing that mara described probably also would help (relax her enough, so the tendions/muscles... would loosen up enough for the nerves to have more room again).

    Thyroid would be another "candidate" (inflammation/hashimoto can cause these symptoms).

    Histamin - it could be a histamin reaction (after eating histamin rich food - fish, tomato, strawberries...).
    Or certain foods could trigger it. In that case the mouth and eyes probably get dry.

    Greetings

    Default Re: Heart problems and arrhythmias

    Hi guys, i'm pretty sure lots of you already figured out that Amy is me, but in case yo didn't, well "Amy" is me

    I'm very sorry that i did not posted this thread directly, i felt very bad the past weeks and was a bit afraid to talk about this, specially because i have family who doesn't even know about these issues completely. And i don't know how to talk about it at all.

    Mr Bill helped me by posting this so i could get some help because i was to much coward to post it myself , I can't thank him enough about this

    I thought about posting this like 20 times before today but was too much of a coward to do it, but i feel like i must, because you are giving your best here and i'm just reading and being silent like a dumb person. Please forgive, i never meant to hide like this or mislead, i was just lost and i feel still the same but i want to let you know how much you are valued and how much you have helped me through this, even if it was in this way

    I'm not very good at this so i just wanted to say thank you all for being so special and whatever happens in this life well i'm very glad i got here and how much i have learned in the past months

    Just to show a bit, i learned and i'm pretty sure, that my doctors are not doing their best, but instead doing "what the book says is best" even if they know or suspect something or don't even know what's going on, they just give pre-packaged suggestions and treatments, and that's probably why i don't get any better

    I was just taking metformin for diabetes for years now, and nothing else, because i was doing sports and feeling well and keeping glucose under control just by excersize, i was always doing well until lately when i started getting very bad heart episodes

    I knew i had arrhythmia but not like this, it was not even something i would notice except some months in between, but now it's like 2 or 3 times a week, and any of those days i feel terrible all day, and nothing stops it, i can go from 70 something pulse to 140 or so in just a few minutes, then down to 80 and up to 90 something, I also feel like something i'm just sitting there and suddenly i try to grab something and feel my fingers totally collapsing, as in numb out of nowhere and even sometimes i drop whatever i was holding because my fingers lose all force and just go numb in a terrible way. My heart is completely cool then out of nowhere i can feel it going crazy and it hurts, sometimes a bit bad, and i get dizzy and go to the doctor, then i'm back to normal and i'm just supposed to call the doctor if i feel bad again, but nothing more than that, every single time :/

    I have gone through extreme depression due to this, and sometimes i go back to normal and feel happy and do tons of stuff, then it happens again and i go down and lose all interest in things, or living, and i throw away everything i fought hard for. It doesn't matter then and i just let myself go down and go to sleep for days and days, until i get back to "normal" and continue my life, it's ridiculous and destructive

    I don't know anything about this more than what i experienced and i still have not got any results that help me from doctors. A couple times i just kind of passed out for an hour or so before i was able to get up and try to look for help. So it's kind of bad, and i can see myself loosing lots of weight and my face looks very different than before

    I don't even know anymore, it's very very tiresome to deal with this and i'm very frustrated

    I had a very big talk with my family yesterday, about all of this, and maybe i can get some help now, even if i wanted to deal with this alone i realize it's not really possible the way things are right now

    I just wanted to thank you all for all your help and effort to help, even if you did not know "Amy". It just shows how special you all really are, so selfless and loving i can't even describe how it makes me feel.

    Love you all much, and thanks for all the help i could not have received anywhere else <3

    Much love, hugs and warm wishes to you Masha

    I don't know if this website will help, you may find something there. It's a goto site for many people.

    Hey Masha,

    I’m sure you’re probably too young for it to be a postural issue, but there is something called ‘Thoracic Outlet Syndrome‘ or ‘Pectoralis Minor Syndrome’, which occurs when the shoulders and ribcage get a little unbalanced, or if the pec minor muscle gets overly tight (very common in today’s society).

    Both issues can compress the brachial plexus nerve which runs under the first rib, over the chest and down the arm into the hand. It can lead to symptoms of numbness, weakness, loss of sensation and tachycardia. It’s often misdiagnosed and mistaken for any number of other heart related issues.

    Quote ... In our experience, when POTS patients seek multiple second opinions it is usually because the patient feels like their prior physician(s) did not do a thorough job looking for underlying conditions that may be contributing to their symptoms. It is no wonder patients feel this way, given the very long list of potentially contributing factors that have been described in the published POTS literature, including small fiber neuropathy (Peltier et al., 2010), Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (Wallman et al., 2014), a long list of autoimmune diseases (Vernino and Stiles, 2018), vitamin deficiencies (Oner et al., 2014;Blitshteyn, 2017), mitochondrial disorders (Kanjwal et al., 2010), Lyme disease (Kanjwal et al., 2011;Noyes and Kluger, 2015), vascular compression syndromes (Petrosyan et al., 2015;Kaymak et al., 2004), cerebral spinal fluid leaks (Aggarwal and Carroll, 2017), Chiari malformation (Prilipko et al., 2005;Pasupuleti and Vedre, 2005), and more. If a patient leaves your office thinking you have not diligently considered the possibility of contributing factors, patients who are motivated to get better and have the means to do so will often seek advice from another physician.
    Quote Thoracic outlet syndrome of pectoralis minor etiology mimicking cardiac symptoms on activity: a case report

    Thoracic outlet syndrome is the result of compression or irritation of neurovascular bundles as they pass from the lower cervical spine into the arm, via the axilla. If the pectoralis minor muscle is involved the patient may present with chest pain, along with pain and paraesthesia into the arm. These symptoms are also commonly seen in patients with chest pain of a cardiac origin. In this case, a patient presents with a history of left sided chest pain with pain and paraesthesia into the left upper limb, which only occurs whilst running. The symptoms were reproduced on both digital pressure over the pectoralis minor muscle and on provocative testing for thoracic outlet syndrome. The patient’s treatment therefore focused on the pectoralis minor muscle, with a complete resolution of symptoms. This illustrates that not all cases of chest pain with associated arm symptoms that occur on physical activity are of cardiac origin...
    I know trying to find the right diagnosis can be exhausting, scary and overwhelming. You just have to try everything and whittle things away until you get down to the root cause.

    If you feel postural imbalances might play a role in any way, you’d be better off going to a physiotherapist, one that understands ‘structural integration‘, ‘anatomy trains‘ or ‘Rolfing‘. Not that I’m saying posture is definitely the cause but it’s certainly one of those areas that is rarely addressed by modern doctors. Always helps to rule it out as a possible cause as you kick-ass on the road to recovery.

    Hi Jayke, thanks for this information, i have never heard about this condition before and i don't think any of the doctors i've seen even checked for it in any way, i will talk to my next doctor about it in a couple weeks

    If anything goes correctly, i will most likely be back home in 2/3 weeks tops, and i will start looking more deeply into these issues, but i won't do this alone anymore, i found that part of the problem was being alone and not having any kind of support from anyone, so i'm not doing this alone anymore

    Thanks for your support and care
