Getting sooo many skipped heartbeats!!!
« on: May 28, 2014, 04:42:05 AM »
Getting so many skipped heartbeats like 5-6 min then it might slow down to 2-3 min then back up again, sometimes i get 2 in a row .. sometimes i reakon i can bring them on if i think about them enough which is weird.. i feel a strange urge in my throat first then ill get the skipped beat about a 1sec after, Dr told me not to worry too much about it after bloods and ecg were normal, just asking if anyone else out there that get them how many? how often? how to get rid of them? thank you for any input...

skipped heartbeats are almost always harmless, and a misunderstanding of how the heart functions. Your heart rate is never truly steady, and it changes speed based on demand at that moment. for anxiety sufferers, this can be a problem, since we're.. you know, terrified.

One thing to watch out for is if you actively check your pulse, you become subject to the "stopped clock illusion." This is a weird phenomenon that messes with how we preceive time. If you were to look at a c lock with a ticking second hand, the first second you see after looking will appear to take longer than the seconds that follow. Measuring your heartbeat causes this too.

You can't accurately measure such things without one occurring, resulting in the skipped sensation as your brain tries to fill in the past that it never actually experienced.

I would stay away from caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, cold medicines and similar items as they can all
increase PVC's.

Do you ever get acid reflux symptoms?  I've had similar heart flutters, but after ekg's, ecg's, and blood work all I can guess is its that.

Yes I have been getting acid reflux but it has gone again I only get it when I've had a real bad panic attack . Just recovering from flu still getting the odd one. I'm starting to just deal with it and not bother me. Thank you everyone for your input
