Heart Problems, Cardiac Symptoms, But Test Results Normal

Posted by deepakkumar @deepakkumar, Thu, Apr 11 11:29pm

m heart rate had go to very fast last night at 3.00 am about 120 to 130 per minutes, when i change position and go to outdoor slowly and return to bedroom, it become normal and I sleep again. Again when i weak up in morning, again heart rate is about 110 to 120. This type of happen three times in 5 months . I tested for ECG, EcoCG,EEG, Ions, CBC,BP and DC. all are normal. Also sometime when i am in standing or sitting, a sudden cardiac arrest type of event occur and I have faint, sweeting.

York cardiology from the UK has videos on YouTube about arrhythmias.

I listen to almost all of them. The doctor recommended a certain type of magnesium, magnesium taurate. Since I started taking it I have very minimal heart irregular beats.

I also am gluten-free, no red meat. I have seen great progress.No sugar.

I would get palpitations if I moved a certain way, if I bent over, if I ate too fast and my stomach got too full, if I would lay on my side’s while sleeping at night. It was crazy then I started taking the magnesium taurate and it helped immensely.

But then the following happened.

A week ago I got it ! Sudden onset of A fib from stretching my right arm overhead. 😩

Now it seems, I may have a vagal nerve that is being pressed by a muscle on the left side of my neck…From an old accident injury 10 years ago.

If you were having any kind of heart irregularities please have your neck checked and your cervical spine examined by a good chiropractor. You may need to get a CT or MRI done to look for any pressure on an artery or Vagus nerve.

Very few cardiologist will look at the neck for heart problems. Whether it’s a thyroid, impingement, or artery issue. Be your own best friend.

"Be your own best friend" Definitely, and remember that every doctor has lots of patients. You are the only one who can specialize in yourself and learn about yourself in ways that the doctors don't have time to. Be your own advocate and your own supporter. That's a win-win way to deal with problematic situations!

I have experience with palpitations in one episode of a fib.

I definitely would suggest seeing a chiropractor to make sure your cervical spine and thoracic spine are properly aligned.

Many people with heart issues do not realize that these areas of your spine can greatly affect your heart.

My EKG, echocardiogram and other tests were all normal. No one could understand why I was having the symptoms.

I got off of my metoprolol.

No one with any form of a fib should be taking a beta blocker.

I am gluten-free. I do not smoke, I do not drink, I do not take any kind of caffeine in any form.

I eat very healthy and only eat chicken or fish.

Lots of fruits and veggies, nuts.

On the advice of a cardiologist from York cardiology in the UK, I began taking magnesium taurate. This form of magnesium is excellent for the heart.

This plan, has worked for me.

So you may want to see a Chiropractor, consider magnesium taurate, and change your diet.

You can also view YouTube videos from York cardiology.

Get an echocardiogram /ultrasound of the heart done to rule out any physical heart issues or anatomical heart issues.

Have you ever had trauma to your neck or body such as in a car accident?

You may have a hernia pressing on the heart or pressing on the vagus nerve which will make the heart go crazy.

You are your own best friend.

Think about the questions above, find a cardiologist who is a functional and integrative physician, like the one in the video I posted above, and begin to try to narrow down what your own personal issue can be from. Listen to his videos.

Another great Doctor Who also does online consulting and gives a lot of advice in his videos online is a wonderful man who told me to switch to the magnesium Taurate. He is on YouTube under York Cardiology, he also is a cardiologist.

I take magnesium taurate three times a day, Coke Q 10, vitamin D, omega-3 salmon oil, and a raw vitamin B complex.
All for my heart.

Takes a lot of personal investigating.

I had two bouts in two days of A fib from bending over or slouching at the computer. Resolved in 30-40 minutes both times with coughing, slow breathing and trying to straighten chest.

I asked for a CT of chest after AM episode to look for hernia or maybe adhesion pulling or pressing on my vagal nerve which could through my heart out of whack.

God will give me wisdom I know. 😊

I had 3 episodes of what felt like breath being taken away in my chest and then thought I was going to pass out. It lasted about 10 seconds and all went away. These 3 episodes happened in a 7 week period. On a couple other occasions I felt my heart race and pound for about 6 beats. The dr had me wear a heart monitor for 30 days. I felt like nothing happened while I wore it but the dr told me they caught 3 different episodes of my heart racing to 110 for 6 beats. I then had a calcium score test. Came back at 0 and also a echocardiogram that showed a healthy heart. My dr wants me to take beta blockers. Is this even necessary? I don’t want to be on them but also don’t want those freaky episodes to keep happening.

Hi Heffert,
I had similar experiences; my heart suddenly racing with skipped beats, losing my breath and feeling like I was going to pass out (lack of oxygen to the brain) and having to take bigger breaths to compensate.The difference is that at worst, I had them every 5 or 6 seconds and at best once or twice a minute.My heart otherwise check out fine. I had a Holter monitor for 48 hours and it malfunctioned because I had too many skipped beats and wild heart racing. The cardiologist told me that he only medicates 1 in 10 people who go to him with skipped beats and racing heart. I was the one in ten. And although your symptoms only occur occasionally, what if you are driving and it happens…and your cardiologist did not put you on beta blockers? You could get into a serious accident…and your cardiologist could be sued. American doctor must be extra cautious and medicate where a Canadian doctor (here) would likely say to go the lifestyle route. (no alcohol, no coffee, get exercise, no stimulants of any kind such as ephedrine (for colds). )
It took me 20 months on beta clockers but I did finally find the cure for my symptoms much to the cardiologist's surprise and maybe you could give it a try yourself…with your doctor's go ahead…and that is aerobic exercise. I went to the gym 6 days out of 7 and my heart became solid and steady and within a month I was off the beta blockers. That was 24 years ago. So if I could cure the most serious case of Atrial Fibrillation the cardiologist had ever seen, your condition which is intermittent, could undoubtedly respond to strengthening your cardiac muscles, too. Let me know if you take that route and if your skipped beats stop and your heart simmers down.

@heffert@heffert yes take the betablockers. I am on metoprolol (low dose 12.5mg x2) and it controls the n/s ventricular tachycardia. Or you may prefer bisoprolol as you only need to take it once a day. This is a condition that needs to be treated. Untreated will most likely get worse over time.

It DID happen once while I was driving. It was very scary. I was able to pull over fast enough and I have never fully passed out.

I’m such a high anxiety person. These drugs scare me. The side effects look horrible. I did read that it could get worse over time. Why is it even happening at all?? I’d like to have an answer to that question. I guess it can’t be answered. When I wore the monitor it happened 3 times and I never felt a thing. I’m only 45 years old. Won’t it be dangerous to be on those meds for years?

I have been on a beta blocker 43 yrs. Beta blockers are not dangerous… not sure where you got that info. Don’t listen to anyone but your doctor. Beta blockers have been safely taken by people with arrhythmias for decades. It is a widely prescribed drug for stage fright..actors take it. There are numerous medical conditions that beta blockers are used for, not just cardiac issues. Try it.. you might feel better and won’t have tachycardias that are frightening for all of us. Hope this info helps you.

I respectfully disagree. I am happy that the meds work well for you, but I have had a number of prescriptions over the years that made me want to go to the emergency room but I managed to last until they wore off and then never took them again. My doctor thinks I should take his suggested meds until my body gets used to them. And be able to drive a car? No, thank you. I am refusing to take the full dose of a medicine now because I can't stay awake during the day and I think I should be able to cook and take care of myself, at the least. My doctor never checks to see how a new prescription is working out so I must be the one who decides yes or no as I am living alone. I am feeling pretty well this fall and managing my diet in good balance. That helps a lot. Dorisena
