Yesterday just as I finished eating, my heart started to beat oddly. It would beat a few normal ones and then pause for longer than normal and then this would be followed by what feels like a jumble of beats all at once, or an extra heavy beat. Then it would beat normally for a few more beats and then this pause and odd beat again. I have felt an odd beat hear and there, over the years, especially when stressed or overtired. But after it did it about 10 times I started to panic. Of course my heart began to race then and my blood pressure went up. The odd beating didn't settle for about two hours. I was so scared. I wasn't sure what was happening. A similar thing happened about a year ago. I didn't know whether to go to the emergency department of the hospital, since I have been a few times over the last 6 years complaining about about my heart and it has never played up when they are doing their tests. Somehow I can't shake off this fear today. It is crippling me and I am afraid to do much. Just wondered if any of you have had similar issues with your heart?

But if I don’t get it,...
