I went to the doctors for this last week! They said I had anxiety and that my hormones might be sending me for a loop. It comes and goes, but I am learning that I am not passing out or dying from it, so I am not letting it bug me anymore. They hooked me up to an EKG and said I was fine, other than a rapid heart rate, which was stemming from my nervousness. My blood pressure was elevated last week, but when I went in on Monday it was normal. When it does happen, I can't tell if my heart is racing, or if my heart is pounding harder. Either way, it's annoying and unsettling to hear your own heartbeat all day.
No doubt it's annoying! For me, I do get dizzy to the point of having to lay on the floor or wherever I am so I don't pass out. It also makes me hearing go and my head feel like it's in a vice. This is prior to pregnancy as well, it's just more often now. I do have a lot of stress right now, I didn't take that into consideration. Makes sense! Thanks!
I had a problem with this when I was pregnant with my twins. My heart rate was elevated the whole pregnancy, but a holter monitor, and ultrasound showed no problem. Everything returned to normal after they were born.
I was at the doc Tuesday for a sinus infection spreading into my ear. While checking vitals they said my heartrate was elevated as well but my blood pressure was good.
But what you're describing with the hearing and dizziness sure sounds like a panic attack to me. I have panic attacks to the point of fainting whenever I have to deal with needles, and the first two hallmarks are the racing heart, ears ringing loudly, and then my vision gets really dark and I feel like my throat's closing off.
