I havn't had this for ages, does anyone sit there and all of a sudden your heartbeat will do a gambowl in your chest, feels like it goes upside down, thats the only way i can explain it. Ive herd some say its like a Flip Floppy feeling. Anyone get this. It always puts me into an anxiety attack. I've been feeling fine all day, i hate it when you think your back to normal and then 'BAM' your not. Stat posative and strong.

I get the "birdy in the chest" about 2 dozen times a day. Try coughing to make it stop. Or pretend you need to have a BM and "push down" for a few seconds. I have this now as I have stopped the Norpace again. I was having it alot already, so a little more wasn't a problem for me. Feels nasty, but won't hurt you.

Hey,

I get that. Not that often but when it does it is like whoa! It seems to happen more when I am dehydrated (not technically but you know just haven't been drinking enough). But know exactly the feeling you describe, one doctor said it was my MVP acting up but I am not sure. Just wanted you to know you are not alone!

I have it almost every day now. I guess I've just gotten used to it. It usually causes me to cough spontaneously. It never lasts for long. What happens is you have an early beat and then a little longer pause between beats because of the early one. During that pause, your heart just gets a bigger load of blood in it than usual and when it gets pushed out, it gives you that kathump or flop or upside down or however you choose you to call it. So all it is , is a little more blood than it normally holds. It is very benign and everyone on the earth has them. We just have them more than most. It is not a pleasant sensation, but also not dangerous at all. I'm sorry it produces anxiety in you and hope this explanation will help with that. Most people don't feel it, but then we are not most people are we???? :) We are our own special breed of people. good bad or indifferent. :huh: morgan

Mine does that on a daily basis. Many times a day, sometimes worse than others. Sometimes it will do that on and off ALL day and scares the $*&(&^ out of me. Then I have the runs of very fast beats and the runs of very fast and irregular beats. I have been having more problems over the past week and have been taking more of by beta blocker(atenolol) but even though I have had these episodes for 19 yrs now, each time is like the first and I get in a total panick if it is one of the worse ones where I feel like I am going to faint. The others, they give me anxiety attacks too, just not to the panick extreme.

I sure wish I could get over my fear of these things. I am aprisoner to them and am sick of it after 19 yrs. But when you can't even walk across the room, sit on the couch, or even try and go to sleep at night without it happening, it is just so scary. Anyone with any good suggestions for the fear would help us all.

Just know you aren't alone.
