Fast heartbeat, etc...
Posted on: 04/11/2008
I was just sitting and watching TV for about and hour and I felt an extremely fast heartbeat, nausea, headache, and weakness. I timed my heartbeat and it was 134 beats per minute. Is this serious, or just symptoms of the deppo shot?
From just the small blurb you gave me, I would be concerned that your heart rate was going faster than it should. I cannot say that it is from the Depo shot, but it's not completely normal.
I would see your doctor, REGARDLESS of whether it happens again or not!!
