My *heart beat races to 169 and dramatically drops to 42 in a matter or seconds/ minutes and I haven’t even been doing much. I've experienced *lightheadedness and feeling like I'm on a *boat feeling for hours at a time. *Chest pain and *tingling throughout my body, left arm/ *tongue going numb.

My PCP has immediately assumed it’s a panic attack but those don’t last for hours. I had no previous history of them.

My neurologist explained that if it’s nerve damage, only time will heal as he have seen multiple cases like mine from getting the vaccine.

I do have a July appointment at utsw neurology clinic to check for autonomic disorder but in the meantime I just don’t know what to do.
