Hi all,

I have been getting such bad heart palpitations the past week. I constantly feel like my heart is racing or skipping beats or both! It does it quite a bit after a eat and in the middle of the night. Does anyone else have it at these times?

I've told my doctor and she finds it really bizarre that they only seem to occur at these times. I am supposed to stop eating and sleeping :rolleyes: ?!?!

I've had two EKGS, an Echo, and numerous blood tests. I even got taken to ER in an amulance because my heart started beating erratically at work and I thought I was going to go into Cardiac Arrest. I guess that is my real concer- that my heart is just going to stop!

Every test they've done has always come back normal, and from what I understand an Echo with doppler is a pretty good detector of heart disease. If my heart is healthy I just dont understand why these symptoms won't go away.

I'm trying really hard not to "have" anxiety, but I cant help it when this happens. :mad:
I've had Anxiety Disorder for several months. I take .75 to 1 mg Clonazepam daily, and that helps, but sometimes I still have to take a .25 mg Xanax if I'm having some panic symptoms. My symptoms are all the ones that you describe: racing heartbeat, rise in blood pressure, and palpitations. I just had a panic attack the other night (about 7:00 pm, after I ate dinner) where I had 4 or 5 of the heart "flip-flops" within a few minutes. I know that they're PVC's and that they're supposed to be harmlesss, but they still scare the heck out of me, and that just spirals the anxiety into a higher level. I run about 20 miles a week, so I know my heart is fine, but it's tough to deal with sometimes anyway.

Hang in there. There are so many of us going through the same thing.
