I am 5 months post having my little boy in august and for the past week or so, I have been having

some very weird feelings going on. I have a rapid heart rate every now and then which sometimes turns into a panic attack (I've had 3 in the past week) And i've never had them before in my life or any kind of heart issues. I'm also extremely hot all the time and I feel like when I get really hot is when my heart does start to race. I am also extremely exhausted, no matter how much sleep I get at night. Example, I slept for 13 Hours last night and woke up exhausted. I've lost over 8 lbs in a week, which is uncommon for me as I haven't changed my diet and/or exercise patterns at all. I am nervous and scared. I went to the Dr. yesterday and they took some blood work but I won't have my results for up to a week.

The doctor prescribed the blood tests because they can't say what the problem is from a verbal description. So the information any of us provide here would only be a guess. I know waiting is tough but the blood tests will provide the correct answer.
