My asthma has been acting up terribly this last week because of allergies. I've had to use my rescue inhaler several times. But I know what to do when I start feeling out of breath, and it doesn't really get me in a panic anymore.
Once in Wal-Mart on Saturday night, and then more strongly at the Rockies game yesterday, I started feeling what I guess must be heart palpitations. It was like my heart was fluttering or twitching in my chest, and I couldn't make it stop. It scared me, so both times I found a bench to sit on in a place that was out of the direct sun. I did some relaxation breathing and drank cool water, and the twitching stopped.
So my question is, and I know you all are not doctors, can heat cause twitches of the heart like that? Or can they be part of an asthma flare-up? I'll make an appointment at the clinic this week if I have any more trouble, but I don't like to go running over there unless I know I have a good reason. Thanks.
