My heart has palipitations from time to time along with twinging feeling from the anxiety. When it first started happening I would freak out and feel like I was going to have a heart attack, die, or faint. Now that I educated myself and know what is going on, I tell myself it is "only anxiety" and to get rid of the "scary/warpy thoughts."

By doing this I have noticed the frequency of the attacks not happening as often, and of course no more panic from it either :)

Just have to train your mind to have positive self-talk. It works :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)
TTYL,

  Thank you Sam,

  I had this same problem, heart pounding and feelings like it was flip flopping and would stop me dead in my tracks, but after time I would push it over and over again till I no longer feel it and had gone to the ER and my pdoc, had many ekgs but all was normal so I keep pushing it more

I am still trying to deal with the palpitations and it has been almost 20 years i have been having them.  They seem to be getting worse now around my cycle...fun fun.  But basically I just try to ignore them.

I can't read the original post. It doesn't show up. Anyway, I still have a difficult time with the palpitations, too. It seems like you can experience them for years and never get used to them. Coughing during an episode sometimes helps. Also, stay away from alcohol and caffeine.

This is probably my worst symptom to deal with.  Even though I've had it for the entire 19 years of dealing with p/a, it still makes me crazy.  I have the "missed" heartbeat feeling, the flip-flops and sometimes it feels like my heart beats hard one beat and softer the next...drives me up the wall.

I have been dealing with the racing heart/heart pounding/palpitations/flutters for a few years now.  Went to my pdoc and to a cardiologist and even a few ER trips for tachycardia.  Have had all the testing from EKGs to cardiac ultrasounds and everything normal.  It wasn't until I saw a therapist and talked to her that I started learning how to move past this symptom.  She said anxiety causes rushes of adrenaline and that is what causes the physical symptom of racing heart, etc.  She suggested more exercise to burn off the extra adrenaline and forcing myself to NOT focus on it.  I know it's hard to do that when you are sitting still and all you can feel is your pounding heart and I still have trouble not focusing on it.  But, I have found that when my mind is otherwise occupied it seems like the symptom disappears (it is still there I just don't notice it).  Like I notice it as soon as I wake up in the morning but once I get busy I don't notice again until I am home from work and sitting around.  Or when I am out to dinner with family I don't notice it cause I am focused on something else.  It is part of my CBT to FORCE myself to stay occupied and at times it seems almost overwhelming but it does work.  I don't know about others, but with a lot of practice and reminders to myself constantly, this is what is working for me.
