Chest Pain, Anyone? So I decided to meditate one day and realized I was able to increase my heart rate, dialate my pupils (not very dramatically) and give myself that little rush that feels suspiciously like adrenaline. The more I practice, the longer I am able to hold the rush and the stronger I am able to make it. However, I have noticed a distinct and unmistakable connection between this rush and chest pain, right around the heart, as a sort of throbbing, painful heartbeat. (It's another reason why I am inclined to believe it actually IS adrenaline, since aforementioned hormone is notoriously destructive to the body) It got so bad I had to be taken to a cardiologist several times, but each time the doctor was clueless. She diagnosed Precordial Catch Syndrome (which is basically unexplained chest pain in teenagers to young adults) but I wasn't really convinced. I didn't mention the adrenaline thing to her, should I've ought to? Has anyone else experienced the same? Please let me know! ThanksView Thread
