I am 21 year old male and all of this started about 2 months about ago
I would also like to add that i am a recovering Alcoholic.
I also was a regular amphetamine user
As of recently i have started having heart palpatations that occur during running walking it feels almost as if my heart is fluttering and i am dizzy and lightheaded alot and very fatigued I also experience shortness of breath and fainty type feeling. The other day i went for a run and by the time i got back i was so dizzy and my heart was pounding so hard i thought i was going to pass out it took almost two hours for my heart rate to come down from 100 beats per minute to 75 were it usaully rest. I most also note my blood pressure is usaully 120/70 at rest
I have had blood test an EKG and an Echocardeogram
all of which were normal.
A heart rate of 100 beats a minute during exercise is not unusual, though its persistence after exercise is stopped is unusual. I am assuming that you are no longer taking amphetamine and that you are off of alcohol. The reason for your recent onset of palpitations should be defined. A 24-hour or 48-hour electrocardiographic study (so-called Holter monitoring) might be helpful, particularly if you exercised while wearing the monitor. Unfortunately, a resting electrocardiogram and resting echocardiogram did not reveal the basis for the palpitations.
Do discuss this with your doctor to define further approaches that could hopefully reveal the origin of your palpitations.
