Yeah they're pretty horrible things to have to deal with. I wish I knew why they happened.
I know they are made worse when eating too much food, or eating too many snacks. If my stomach contains too much gas they are problematic too. I have to literally wait until it passes, before they subside. I read somewhere this is possibly related to the vegus nerve. I am intollerant to dairy though (only at times, which is odd).
I am scared one day I will have one so forceful it will cause damage. Or over the years, these forceful beats, or flutters, will do something negative.
It's time to change my diet anyway. I'm 30, and it's never been particularly good. I'm trying to find something healthy and tasty too. I switched to vegan a few years back, and only lasted a couple of months. I'm a good cook, but the food was just too bland.
Maybe a diet change could help.
