Cardiology Questions? Ask a Cardiologist for Answers ASAP.
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
still need help?
Do you take any meds right now?
albuterol triggers elevated heart rate and anxiety
did you use this when it happened?
how is your sleep?
I don't think anything is seriously wrong
I think this is associated with the POTS
We are learning more about POTS as time goes on. It is a complex interaction of hormonal release and nerve activation
A super stressful time can exacerbate all of this. Which, then, can interfere with sleep, memory, mood etc.
So it is all related
is this helpfuL?
Yes, I would see a doctor
I think you need a beta blocker and possibly SSRI
these really help control POTS
I think it may recur
your system is primed for another attack
