I have random episodes of palpitations and my pulse shoots up to 200 and stays that was for 5 or more hours. I also faint on a daily basis. I have a cardiologist but he has no clue what is wrong.
A 24 Hour HOLTER test needs to be done to monitor the abnormal electrical activity in your heart during the phase of palpitations. Additionally, Echocardiography and Angiography needs to be done to rule out Morphological abnormality and Coronary artery disease. Please don’t ignore and undertake all these test, because the symptoms might sometimes prove life threatening. Depending upon the findings, your doctor might choose to prescribe you beta blockers or suggest you a pace maker implant with defibrillator. The symptoms need urgent expert attention.
