A few months ago I went to the hospital to have my heart checked out. I had to stay in the hospital overnight. While going up a few steps or walking slightly faster than my usual pace, my heart rate jumps. My heart beats so fast that I can see the vein in my neck pulsing. In any case, I thought it best to have everything checked out since my chest was feeling tight on that particular day.
While at the hospital they put a pulsometer on me. Every time I got out of bed just to use the bathroom they could tell because my pulse rate would double for a minute or so, then go back to normal. In fact, every time I was in a lying down position and would sit up, or get out of bed, my heart rate would double. (Which is how it’s been for a few years now).
The same thing happens when I exercise. I start out with my vein pulsing, and out of breath with the slightest effort. Then after a few minutes my body reacts normally. I often avoid confrontation because of this. Here’s what I mean…
If I get mad for whatever reason my pulse rate jumps, I’m out of breath, and I feel as if I’m on an adrenaline rush. I even start to shake. Then my body feels washed out a few minutes after that, and I feel dead to the world.
I have low T levels that I’m taking a compounded testosterone for. I’ve also been working with my doctor to make sure all my hormones are balanced. But I was wondering…does anyone know why this happens? Why does my heart rate double from the slightest effort, but then a minute or two later goes back to normal?
