Hey guys, just had some weird symptoms in the night and would appreciate some feedback, it freaked me out a bit!
I woke up in the middle of the night lying on my left side with palpitations, sweating and a weird feeling like I was going to faint. How can you wake up feeling like you are going to faint?
The left side of my chest felt compressed and once I rolled onto my back I started to feel a bit better. Is this yet another sign of Mitral Valve Prolapse or is it Vagus Nerve Compression? I have read that the vagus nerve can be compressed in this position. It felt more like my heart was under pressure. Confused and a bit panicky, I'm still getting the feeling like I'm skipping heart beats in my sleep. I am still waiting for my appointment at the autonomic clinic, I worry something serious is going to happen before I get there.
Sorry, I'm writing this at 1.30 in the morning so it probably all sounds a bit far fetched!
migraines, fatigue, multiple chemical sensitivities, gluten and lactose intolerance, bursitis, ulna nerve pain, hypermobility, and possibly POTS.
