Low blood pressure and palpitations

Postby SLScorpio72 » Wed Oct 21, 2015 8:55 pm

Hi. I've been getting chest flutters and palpitations over the last 2 weeks. I went to my GP and discovered I have low blood pressure and a low heart rate. She's referred me to cardiology for a 24hr ECG monitor. Just wondered whether other fibro sufferers have these symptoms as my other fibro aches and pains have also flared up. They may not be connected but seems a bit coincidental.
It wouldn't surprise me if they can't find any underlying reasons for these things and so they become added to the ever growing fibro list. Thanks :-D

I had palpitations which led to a heart attack. It was in my recovery that I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have the blood pressure of an athlete but believe me I'm no athlete.

I was told similar about my blood pressure being similar to an athlete and was asked if I was sporty. I didn't think walking the dog counted as athletic!

I suffer from palpitations, sometimes they can drive me nuts at night when I am trying to sleep!

hi yes I have suffered from low blood pressure for years and palpitations also having lots of pain at the moment. This is just a silly theory but do any of you have any skin tags? or have any food intolerances? best wishes everyone
