Hello, Greetings & Happy Holidays to all-
Been awhile since I posted--Hope you are all well-!
I'll try to make this quick & to the point-!
Re: Irregular heartbeats--As I have told all-Have had MANY "event monitors"-
Only shows occasional "Premature Atrial" beats & some short SVT-episodes- is "THE New one"....that has me concerned-  Been about a year since it started--in that time I have had THREE 'event monitors'...& the darn things NEVER "popped up"---so...the cardiologist NEVER saw it--
The "FEELING" is a PREMATURE BEAT...BUT...with a .."JOLT"-Like an "ELECTRICAL CURRENT" passing theu my heart!  Almost like an EMG...(Those muscle/nerve tests where a light electrical current....passes thru the muscle!)
OK....I told my cardio---he has NOT seen it---!
Has ANYONE here---anyone...expierenced this feeling?  I hate feeling...I;m ALL alone-
It's the holidays...w lottsa stress--AND..I HAVE been a bit "bad" that I am eating lots of chocolate. ..& drinking... Coca Cola..(LOTS of caffeine)--THAT being said....does anyone..patient...Dr---know WHAT this "Electric shock"...feeling could be--?  Happened...yesterday...while I was in the taxi---I felt like I was gonna go thru...the roof!   A.."JOLT"---!  PLEASE....someone....get back...!  Gonna see my cadrio in next month or so--!
Thanks all of te wonderful...caring people here--!   Robert

Happy Holidays.  Sorry to hear you are experiencing "jolts'.  Do you have a pacemaker or inplanted cardioverter-defibrillator ?
That would be the first thing that comes to my mind.  Do call your Dr. if you keep experiencing this event instead of waiting for your appointment.
I see you have been on the same Holiday Diet that I have been on devil
