OK--I do NEED a few people to help me w this--so i know i'm not alone in some "strange" heart sensation--that no Dr. has ever heard of--
  Just have had it 2 or 3 times in past month.     During one of my MANY irregular beats ( a premature beat etc.) when suddenly I feel a "fleeting" sensation of am "electric shock" type of sensation in my heart.     Just lasts a split second!   Not.."pain", a conventional way----just a "shock" sensation!         Could it be the strength of the irregular beat--?  Or perhaps a true "electical impulse"?
  And---has ANYONE---anyone , out there ever felt anything like this?
BTW-- i hav had...EVERY HEART test---there is---ekg, stress ekg w isotope.....echo--stress echo---event monotor----------only thing diagnosed is...SVT-----HOPING to hear from some people about this?  Thanks--Robert

Hey Robert, I sometimes get a shock or even like a really sharp stab feeling from time to time.  I have sick sinus syndrome, bradycardia which I have a pacemaker implant for, now I have V-tach and SVT's that the pacer has picked up.  Guess my heart has no idea what to do!

I also have anxiety and panic disorder which came about right after I got sick with my autonomic disorder and all this heart stuff.  So sometimes it is difficult to figure out what is anxiety and what is truely heart pain.  BUT with these shock things they happen so fast I really think it is a heart issue because it happens then it is gone just as fast.  I dont know but I do understand what your talking about...
