Has anyone experienced this or something similar?

I have been traveling to a doctors appointment, I got out at a rest stop (I haven’t been able to take my beta blockers due to my testing) it’s about 105 temp. where we stopped I got half way to the bathroom and could already feel my heart pounding. When I got back in my car I measured it and I was at 160 it started coming down then went up to 180 i put water on my face in front of my ac to help regulate my temp it took abojt a total of 45 minutes for it to completely come down to a normal hr in the 80s.

Does it usually take you guys a while to get your heart regulated? I ended up taking my beta blocker as well

    Sometimes it can take me an hour to stop having those waves. I noticed electrolytes really help to kick those though

    Mine is less intense for now, but my hr will stay in the 140-150 range or swing up and down hour up to an hour after I sit down on occasion

      I’m so sorry :( I just got my official diagnosis today actually from the doctors in Stanford who did my autonomic testing.

        It’s bearable for now. I found some ways to manage it thanks to this app

    Absolutely, this summer has been brutal. I've taken to lying down in the backseat for some relief. I actually can't drive right now because of how much the heat affects me.
