Hi all.

I am a 31 year old female. No heart disease (so the dr says). I have tachycardia, mitral valve prolapse and recently diagnosed with PVCs.

This year I have had major health anxiety about my heart. I constantly check my pulse on my neck to see how fast its going and to check for PVCs. In the past couple weeks I have been doing A LOT better and some days even go without checking.

For the past 6 months I have noticed that my pulse has felt strong and forceful. I think it may have been due to my extreme anxiety. In the past couple of weeks, I met a guy and I have been super distracted and I don't think about my heart as much. The other day I checked my pulse to make sure my heart was okay and my heart beat seemed weaker. It is harder to get a clearer reading when I am checking my pulse and it seems very faint. I want to know if the quieter heartbeat is due to me being more calm or if my heart is becoming weaker. I have a fear that I am going to have a heart attack and I don't want to feel this way anymore. I am not with my guy friend tonight and so of course I checked my pulse and it doesn't feel strong like it used to. Should I be concerned?

no. and because when someone we care about, etc, comes around positive endorphins get set around and will increase ya blood flow. how is ya water intake? this is keeps ya flowin' good.
when we stop and check our pulse, we do so and thus we are usually sedentary when doing so, so thus it quieter, movgin' and groovin' louder. and they fluctuate as well.
