For the past week, I have felt my heart pounding in my chest, even at rest. It's not a rapid heartbeat, just a hard pounding. It's disturbing because I sometimes feel shortness of breath with it too.
The other night I was up until 5am because my heart was pounding so hard I couldn't sleep. Finally, I took a Toprol and that helped me fall asleep.
I am taking 25mg of Toprol once a day and it seemed to have been helping me, then the pounding came along.
So far, all of my heart tests have been normal, except I've had a couple abnormal and borderline normal ekg's, and my Cardiologist thinks I may have MVP (which hasn't shown up in any Echos that I've had done).
Does anyone else experience the heart pounding? Should I be worried?
