Good Morning and welcome to HealingWell.
Heart palpitations have been described in numerous ways. It can be a feeling of your heart pounding, a racing heartbeat. Some people describe feeling as if they have skipped a heartbeat followed by strong heartbeats. Other people may feel their heartbeat becomes irregular, feeling as if they have periods of weak heartbeats and then periods of rapid heartbeats.
Developing strategies for coping with heart palpitations, before they occur, can help to minimize the stress associated with them. Sometimes, when you begin to have heart palpitations, worry about having a heart attack increases your anxiety. When you add additional stress to an anxiety attack, you intensify the symptoms of the anxiety attack rather than decreasing symptoms. Accept your heart palpitations and try to change your focus to something else, such as your breathing. As you focus switches, your heartbeat will slowly return to normal.
Although heart palpitations can feel as if you are experiencing a life-threatening episode, remembering they are not dangerous or harmful can go a long way toward learning to control, manage and live with heart palpitations and anxiety attacks.
If you feel you are in danger always call you Dr. or present to the ER. You have had a complete work up so try to believe that you are OK.
You are in good company here !
