@merkat30 - I have this happen to me, My HR will speed up and then plummet and I pass out. In my first TTT this happened and I was diagnosed with NCS ( neuro-cardiogenic syncope, also called vasovagal syncope, a type of dysautonomia ). When I am in a flare ( probably caused by the virus in you ) I faint more often, so the NCS gets worse. Other times the HPOTS worsens and I have problems with seizures and high BP.

@merkat30--this is familiar for me too.  A couple of weeks ago, post Pfizer jab #1, I went into a terrible flare where my heart rate resting and in bed was in the upper 40s and when I got up to go to the bathroom or get some water, it rocketed up to 150 in half a minute or so.  I am feeling much better now, and my heart rate fluctuations, while still pathological, are not insane. Yours are so dramatic.  Were the fluctuations orhtostatically correlated?  Or did your heart rate zoom up while you were sitting or lying down?

Could you get a referral to an electrophysiologist? They are cardiologists who specialize in the electrical function of the heart and your HR comes from electrical signals. They are the ones to see for any type of heart rhythm problem. I had a similar HR pattern and it turned out to be tachy-Brady syndrome or sick sinus syndrome which is very treatable. If a cardiologist gave you a heart monitor for a couple of weeks, they would have an exact recording of what is happening. These monitors are one or more electrodes that stick on your chest with a method of broadcasting the data to a device like a cell phone which then sends it to your doctor and the monitoring company. I really hope you can convince your doctor to investigate further as living with HR fluctuations like yours is neither easy nor safe—you could pass out and hit your head!
