I have a question. Is it normal to be aware of your heart beating? Im always feeling it beating in my chest and I get scared. I have MVP with slight regurgitation. I am 26, not exacty thin, and I dont have high blood pressure. My doctor says its not dangerous, but I dont know. I have been told its not normal. =( Im a little scared about this.

Hi, in May 2008 I had a large PFO closure, 22mm....The PFO was discovered because I am a scuba diver and noticed that I was getting some chest pain and blue lips, also very clumsy. When I had the operation I could not believe how painful it was, it took about a month before I felt okay again....Then 2 months after I started to get chest pains again, sharp pain. The doctor put me on beta blockers as well as the plavex and aspirin I am already on. I had my 1st eco bubble test in July and was told the procedure had not been 100% successful; it closes at rest but not under exercise. I have just been to my second eco bubble test and same problem, still not 100% successful....I now have pains in my legs and still get some chest pains, not as bad since being on the beta blockers. I am seeing my surgeon next week to find out more and what’s next for me.....Has anyone else been through a similar experience?

Good points, no more migraines and not so my complexion is much better....
