Hi all! Forgive me, for I have been a wreck these past few weeks.
anyways I was worried earlier, I reached up to take my pulse in my neck and couldnt find it at first, and I felt such a rush of adrenaline, I almost went into full on panic. Once I found it though, I thought it felt a bit weak. Tried not to freak out too much- succeeded. So here I am lying in bed, I was reading an anxiety article on how to stop worry thoughts, and just as I was feeling great, thinking "this all makes sense!! Why am I worried", all of a sudden I felt a faint twitching feeling in my chest. My eyes went round as saucers and I immediately reached for my pulse. Felt normal enough, but by then the twitches were gone. They lasted only long enough for me to feel them and.totally freak out. Since I was in such a adrenaline filled rush, I can't quite gage where exactly the feeling came.from, it seemed like almost.the very middle of my chest really, but I SWEAR it came from my heart. It felt like a palpitation, just twitchier. It just felt like my heart was twitching, like any other muscle. Maybe it was my chest muscles though, I try to tell myself, but to not much avail. In fact I think I just felt another small palpitation, only a normal feeling palp this time. The thing troubling me is, how can I tell if it was a muscle twitch or my heart? Do you think it was merely a muscle that was close to my heart that I maybe misread? Just so scared something bad.will follow it up. Just when I was feeling like I was getting somewhere, this kind.of.thing happened :/ anyhow, just looking for logical people to turn to :) thank you for always being one place I can.run to!
