I know Ive mentioned this before but its been bothering me lately. I have these heart palpitations even when Im completely relaxed (well at least what my nervous body is considering relaxed). Ive had all types of tests ekg, 24hr holtermonitor, blood work and a 2d echo. All came back fine and all of this work was done a year ago exactly. The problem is they are starting to worry me again Imean I just dont get why i have them when Im calm. They are so uncomfortable, for those of you who dont know just imagine having a frog jump in your chest about 100 times a day. They r not like the usuall fluttering like butterflies when youre nervous. What im trying to say is they are a little more frequent now so Im thinking about going back to my doc to get it checked again. I just hate when my doc automatically blames all of my issues on anxiety before really checking everything out, it mkaes me feel as if they just think Im over reacting. Has or is any else here experiencing palpitations this often? And if so what do u do to calm yourself down because Im getting worried. sad

How frequent would you say they are? I'm sure going to the doctor would be a good idea... It'll get you checked out and ease some of your fears... and maybe your doctor could prescribe you something for your anxiety...

I haven't had an anxiety attack (with the chest pains and such) in a long, long time... But I used to get them every other month or so... And they'd pop up out of nowhere.... I'd be sitting down, minding my own business... and then I'd get that sharp, chest pain...

I think it might be a... delayed reaction to stress, perhaps... But anyway, just thought you'd like to know that since it might help you relax a little... You can have an anxiety attack, even when you're not feeling particularly anxious at that current point in time....
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

I have the same thing happen to me....and I too have had all kinds of tests done.  It is more intense when I sit down and relax or when I am falling asleep.  When I asked the doctor about it he told me that I am just feeling them more when I am relaxed and they probably are happening at other times during the day but I don't feel them as much.  He also told me that most people over forty have them and don't notice them at all, but anxiety  makes them more obvious.  I had three EKG's and an ultra sound within six months and I have finally stopped worrying about them even though that's hard to do.  And yes...I have had them that often.  Once I started counting and they were hitting me every fourth beat.

Thanks Donna, you made me feel a whole lot better. I noticed that I dont feel them when Im doing alot like cleaning or exercising. I also noticed that i feel them more when im sitting or laying down. Its so strange what anxiety does to your body.

Hey there i hope you feel better.I feel the same things too.My doc says its anxiety brought on by my diet. i cut the caffiene out and watch what i eat. so next time it happens try to think about what you ate or drank.also if you have gerd this happens too. I had am trying to get over eating fast too.I dont know if this helps but hang in there.

Interesting. Is it like a fluttering in your chest around the lung area? I get that when I lay down at night a lot of times (side sleeper). However, I have GERD which can cause spasms as well as asthma and anxiety. So yeah...in my case, hard to tell what the trigger or cause is. Does this sound like roughly the same thing?
