Day 3 Wanted to go out yesterday, but suddenly experienced an episode of ectopic beats that took away my breath for a second, followed by heartracing. I'm not talking about single ectopics that some of you might now you can feel when lying down, but rather an episode of multiple ectopics that is quite terrifying. I've had them since a couple of years, but only once every few months, recently I had them once or twice a month. I had another one today, while walking on the street, a bit shorter. I"ve had my heart checked out a couple of months ago, and doctors say in general that ectopics are nothing to worry about, if your heart is structurally normal, which thank god mine is. Still everytime one of these happens I'm scared the heart rhythm won't go back to normal and that I'm going to die. I know it sounds ridiculous, but subjectively it is frightening to terrifying. Any of you ever had them. Apart from that, I've had a quite productive language learning day, since I'm on holiday right now. I also was able to to do meditation, 2x 25 mins yesterday and 1x 25 min today. Fry2, Thanks for the the comment. I've heard of Adrenal Fatigue, HPA-Axis dysregulation and so forth and even own an array of supplements, anything from adaptogens like Rhodiola Rosea and Ashwagandha to Siberian Ginseng. I personally haven't felt any improvement from taking these. Unfortunately as with so many things in the medical world there is no clear consensus whether Adrenal Fatigue is an actual medical condition. There has howver been a metastudy looking on 52 studies about Adrenal Fatigue that concluded it doesn't exist https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27557747 However I appreciate the thought Cjm, Yes I have - There seems to be more of a consensus about the existent of CFS but as you said, it's hard to diagnose and can only be done so by excluding all other possible sources of debilitating fatigue during daytime. Also, once you have the diagnosis there's the problem that while there is an unending amount of info about how to cure CFS (ranging from Amygdala Retraining to herbal supplements) there is also no clear consensus on what works. Also I don't have any flu like symptoms which are often mentioned in conjunction with CFS. You mentioned you got better - what was it that helped you? Thanks for your post. One aspect that might cause many of my problems is certainly anxiety - it is probably not all of the problem but I'm sure it's part of it. So this is something I want to learn about more and work on on a daily basis. The other thing that obviously always creates some kind of improvement in the long run are lifestyle changes, as I mentioned in my previous post. nutrition, excersice, regular sleep, meditation. And of course not engaging in activities that are detrimental, like too many stimulants, either nutritionally (caffeine, alcohol) or visually (TV, video games, internet) is equally important. This is what I will focus on, as well as posting here.
