I've had these on and off for 18+ years and it's the one thing that can still throw me into an anxiety state. Since August I've had them quite a bit, starting off with the missed beats, the flip-flopping feeling, the whole nine yards. Now it is more just a feeling of one hard beat and one normal beat. It can really drive me crazy!
The best way of dealing with it for me is to just keep reminding myself that this is yet another symtpom of anxiety, that my heart is healthy, I'm just way to concentrated on it right now and that's why I'm feeling each beat. Then I try to keep busy and not sit all day and think about it. It's not easy, but as long as you've been checked out, you can use that information to help you change your thought pattern about it. You have a healthy heart, you're just watching it too much and adding a little jolt of adrenaline each time you notice it, which causes it to do it more. Hope this gets better for you soon!
Thanks for replying everyone, I normally don't drink caffiene but had a coke the other day and did notice the heart palps were worse.
My mood is still going down the zyprexa is mucking me around so the hormones are going crazy for an even longer time. Rotten things, I just want to be normal but then I question is this 'normal for me'. I find it hard to accept as I do remember a time when things were so different.
