I am sooooo glad that I am not the only one with this issue..lol. I was beginning to think I was nuts. My doc never even wanted to get to the "root" cause of these feelings. He sent me to cardio, and I underwent all the tests, and they said my heart is fine, good and strong, so my doc just passed them off as "benign" heart palpitations, or benign PVCs. Said they won't hurt me, everyone gets them.. blah, blah, blah. Which is good news, don't get me wrong.. BUT, when you are the one having them, a pat on the head doesn't do much!!!! I asked him once could they be GERD related, or chest muscle issues... his answer.. "yep". (no, he is NOT a big talker, or explainer..lol)
Now I am being very vigilant with these. Last night I felt one while I was laying in bed... I let it go a sec and focused on my stomach, and sure enough... felt gas bubbling through my side. I am a smoker who is trying to quit.. and I eat a lot of sunflower seeds in the shell in the evenings. I'm wondering if these are causing gas, since you do tend to gulp some air while cracking shell and such.
Thanks for the replies... I knew I could count on ya'll!!!
