Wow, I have had this same exact issue going on for 6 yrs now, it has totally brought my life to a screeching halt. I get racing heart palpitations with bi and trigemeny that last for 1-1hr or longer. I went to the hospital when it first happened and had the gambit of heart tests done, even a event monitor but of course it didnt hapen the 2 days it was on. I try to explain it to everyone and tel them how badly this effects my life. The attacks have gotten longer and easier to set off over time.I cant take a shower without having palpitations and sometimes setting off a attack. I have to lay down and for some reason that sometimes elieves the palpitations, although not the raing heart.I have to mentally ignore it and try to get my heart back into a reg rythm. This came on all of a sudden one day, it just happned. I had always gotten palpitations but only 1 or 2 then nothing.So far I have been told it is anxiety but it seems like more. It happens 90% of the time when I start to exert myself, I have gained almost 100lbs due to my lack of activity now. I wish they coud figure out what this is and fix it. We may or may nt be suffering the same thing although you are the only person I have ever seen discribe it exactly like I get it. If you find anything out please please let me know, so I can give my doctors an ave to try. I will do the same. ty and good luck to you. Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgView Thread
