    Felt like heart stopped this morning

    I could really use any prayer or energy anyone has to share. This morning after I stood up for about a minute, and suddenly felt like my heart stopped beating, then like I was suffocating, and my vision went blurry. the episode lasted about 5 seconds and I saw a doctor, and am going to see one again this monday. Overall doctors are thinking it might be my heart that's the overall issue. I don't know what's going on, whether I'm near the end or whether I'll get over this, but any help would be so greatly appreciated.

    Sent some positive energy . Also, that description exactly matched what my aunt described when one of her ovarian cysts ruptured, so you might want to check that out. Those sorts of problems can mimic ones with the heart.

    Indian Chief 'Two Eagles' was asked by a white government official; "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

    The Chief nodded in agreement.

    The official continued; "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

    The Chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied.. "When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women did all the work, Medicine Man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night having sex."

    Then the chief leaned back and smiled; "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."

    May we have an update? How are you feeling now?

    Re: Felt like heart stopped this morning

    Thank you guys so much. As for an update, I went to the ER twice on saturday, they sent me home with some Ativan, and my doctor wants me to taper off of the antidepressants I've been taking entirely (Effexor). At the time the incident occurred, I was taking 3 quarters of a 37.5mg tablet, and now I'm down to just one quarter. My symptoms overall have still been kind of unsteady, I have to move slower so that my heart rate doesn't elevate too quickly. I already had to miss two days of work.

    Just this morning some of the more severe symptoms started popping up, including having a 117 pulse rate at rest, and when I stand my pulse increases even further and my heart starts pounding heavily. I called my doctor to check on things, see if there's anything I should do, and see if I should take another day off work. Tomorrow I'm going in to get a 48 hour holter monitor, which will monitor my heart during that time and see if there's any abnormalities. Finance wise, I might have to take out a short term disability loan, because missing this much work is already putting me close to red, and if I have to miss today (which I think I will) then I'll be in financial trouble. So I'm really unsure about the future, but I'm just taking it day by day and doing my best to make things right.

    Anti depressant can have some nasty side effects..Long time back I was on paxil and the side effects made it VERY hard to stay on them.

    as an example of side effects.
    Common side effects of Paxil include:

    Headache
    Dizziness
    Weakness
    Difficulty concentrating
    Nervousness
    Forgetfulness
    Confusion
    Extreme tiredness
    Nausea or vomiting
    Diarrhea
    Constipation
    Gas
    Stomach pain
    Heartburn
    Changes in ability to taste food
    Decreased appetite
    Changes in sex drive or ability
    Dry mouth
    Sweating
    Yawning
    Sensitivity to light
    Tightness in the throat
    Back pain or pain in the muscles, bones, or other parts of the body
    Tenderness or swelling of joints
    Muscle weakness or tightness
    Flushing
    Sore teeth and gums
    Strange dreams
    Painful or irregular menstruation

    Serious side effects can also occur. If you have any of these side effects, stop taking paroxetine and call your doctor right away:

    Blurry vision
    Hallucinations (seeing and hearing things that do not exist)
    Fainting
    Rapid, pounding, or irregular heartbeat
    Chest pain
    Trouble breathing
    Seizures
    Abnormal bleeding or bruising
    Tiny red spots directly under the skin
    Peeling or blistering of skin
    Signs of infection, such as sore throat, fever, chills, and cough
    Unsteady walking
    Sudden involuntary muscle twitching or jerking
    Numbness or tingling in your hands, feet, arms, or legs
    Frequent urination
    More difficult or painful urination
    MAGIC is MAGIC,black OR white or even blood RED

    all i ever wanted was a normal life and love.
    NO TERF EVER WE belong Too.
