I haven't been on the forums in a while, I've had a few other health issues in the past and have pretty good control of them right now, so all has been well. Till about a week ago. I feel like my heart is racing fairly often over the last few weeks, but hadn't really checked it till a week or so ago. At rest my heart rate is sometimes 80-90 bpm, but very often it is higher. Since I have been watching it, it ranges between 107 and 130bpm. Just randomly, but it doesn't matter whether I am at rest or doing something. Last year I had a complete cardiac run of tests, including a heart cath. They say all is well. On New years Eve, just sitting there watching tv, my heart was racing like mad. I called my cardio dr office. They sent me to the ER. They said that my heart rate was really high, but the rhythm was okay, so not to worry. Gave me ativan and sent me on my way. Anyone else have anything like this? Should I worry?

Thanks in advance
