I am 31 weeks and for the past few weeks, practically daily, and now increasing to multiple times a day, my heart will just start racing. Sometimes, I am just sitting on the couch, or sleeping at night, sometimes it's while I am working(I am a waitress) or just grocery shopping. My heart rate will go to 120-150bpm. I also get short of breath and start breathing like I just got done running. Last night I almost passed out, got nauseous, sweaty, dizzy all at the same time. My doctor said I may need to go to a cardiologist, but there is NO way we can afford that right now.. Anyone else have this problem or know what causes it or what I can do to relieve it?
