Teri: I have a really silly question regarding irregular heartbeats, so thought I'd stick it here. Not sure if this is normal or abnormal, but sometimes when I get tense, I can feel my pulse and feel it speed up and slow down, fairly rapidly. Seems to be steady, maybe a couple extrasystoles thrown in there, but when tense and having small muscle spasms it is difficult to tell if it's that or just a "missed" beat that I didn't catch.
It rarely gets into sinus tach category while I'm resting, but does do this "cycling" where it's fast, then slow, then fast. Someone told me, can't remember who, that it's normal and has to do with breathing, so as long as you are breathing your heart rate is going to change.
Just thought I'd stick this here and see what you thought!! ;)

I have no medical training, any medical opinions expressed in my posts are just that....opinions.
