I just had to post.. i havent been around in awhile.. but i find for me sometimes staying away is better.. I too have been diagnosed with MVP. Its not fun i know with the heart palps..i used to freak out with every one.. i have tried to reduce my caffeine intake as that plays a big part of it.. however if i do have chocoloate or pop and i get palps i know its my own fault lol.. so it doesnt scare me very much. They are at a point with me that they are more annoying than anything.. I also get them like you bandit where it "jumps" around so not to worry its all normal with MVP. Eventually ya learn to cope with them as best as you can.. hope this helps
I thought I was having some other issues with my heart. I was have Palps scared the fire out of me wasn't real sure what was going on.
I talk with my cardio he was going to put a heart monitor on me (said it could be something serious) then I ask him if it could be caffeine he said it could be so anyways we skip the heart monitor and I cut down on the caffeine and they quit!!! (sidenote I'm not suppose to be drinking anything with caffeine anyway) LOL Thank goodness mine was related to caffeine!!
I have also notice if I forget to take my Coreg (beta blocker) I start getting palps.
I hope you find out what the problem is soon.
Thanks for posting your post. That was very helpful to me. I have been trying to get over this anxiety for 2 years now. I finally went to the Dr about 2 wks ago and was put on Celexa. Seems to be working ok, but have still had some close call panic attacks. Recently, I have had chest pains and my heart feels like it jumps every few minutes. I am happy to hear that this too can be blaimed on the anxiety! :)
