yellowrose2277 Posted September 30, 2004 Report Share Posted September 30, 2004 Hi, All! I have noticed all my life that I had bad "head rushes" upon standing up, especially when stooping down. I would get really dizzy and feel my heart beating hard. I've been through a period of intense panic attacks for the past 5 weeks, in which I've had fast heartbeats that the doctors can't find a reason for (my cardiac tests are all normal). I have these intermittently and they are controlled by Xanax. I have started to have a really rapid heartbeat upon waking up in the morning and getting out of bed. My heart will go up to 130 bpm or more within a few minutes of getting out of bed. It is very distressing. I take Xanax for it but it takes a while to get my bpms down. Does this sound like a dysautonomia problem to any of you? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
