User Profile
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.

And Input would be greatly appreciated
