    Heck of a feeling isn't it? I have the same problem but only about once or twice a year, and it usually settles down after a minute or 2, but it is definitely a panic moment when it just hits you out of nowhere.

    Glad to hear it settled down. Prayer answered.

    Finally home from the hospital. They still don't know the cause. My money is on stress. They submitted an urgent referral to s cardiologist. Xarelto to thin my blood and meds to slow my heart rate. Fun fun.

    I just found this thread.

    They submitted an urgent referral to s cardiologist.
    I am hoping and praying this guy will know how to prevent or head off the next one.
    Any idea where you will find a cardiologist?
    I don't mind being called far right.
    I have been right so far.

    There used to be a tarot card reader downtown. They might be able to help, they are a cardiologist, aren't they?

    get well quick Rick. I had two episodes about 20 years ago. No problems since. Back then they used a drug through the an I've to slow the heart rate to normal. Dr told me it would feel like a elephant kicked me in the chest. After it was done I told him it didn't feel like an elephant but a whole herd run over me. Heart rate went to normal in a heart beat (pun intended) and they sent me home right away. EKG showed heart rate over 200 beats per minute. They were upset that I drove by two hospitals to get to them.




    TEXAS has a balanced budget.

    Just to clarify, when I say teachers I don't mean all teachers.

    get well quick Rick. I had two episodes about 20 years ago. No problems since. Back then they used a drug through the an I've to slow the heart rate to normal. Dr told me it would feel like a elephant kicked me in the chest. After it was done I told him it didn't feel like an elephant but a whole herd run over me. Heart rate went to normal in a heart beat (pun intended) and they sent me home right away. EKG showed heart rate over 200 beats per minute. They were upset that I drove by two hospitals to get to them.
    The first time in 2004, I didn't know what was going on. It felt weird, I tried to take my pulse, but there was no way it was as high as I thought it was. So I activated the heart rate monitor on my exercise bike and was shocked that it said 187. I drove to the hospital and they rushed me to a bed and did the chemical stress test to try to settle it down, but it didn't work. So they admitted me to the CCU and they were able to slow the rate, but it still took almost a full day to return to normal rhythm.

    The second time, in 2007, it hit in the evening, so my wife drove me. That too, took a day to return to normal.

    Same thing this time. But they were messing with the dose of the meds to slow it down. They wanted to take me off the IV that was working and put me on a pill, that wasn't working, so it probably lasted longer than it needed to.

    Mestral, Austin Heart has a doctor who works in Seton, so supposedly, I will go there. They have already paved the way and the meds I am on are what the cardiologist told them to put me on.

    Xarelto is unlike warfarin/coumodin in that if I get a severe cut, it will be very hard to stop the bleeding. But I don't have to go for a weekly blood test. I don't want to be on any of it for something that only comes around every few years, but the DR thinks I have had small episodes of A-Fib, so they want to prevent clotting, which can cause a stroke.

    Tomorrow, I start to deal with the problems that were found during the endoscopy that I had last week. Esophagus is a mess. Hiatal hernia, esophagitis, gastritis, and a stricture, all classified as severe. We'll see.
