sstephan Posted June 16, 2006 Report Share Posted June 16, 2006 Hi,I was wondering if anyone else could describe their adrenaline rush feeling. I have had many instances of racing heart but last night was the worst. I am a teacher and was sitting at a school board meeting. Out of nowhere, my heart began to race faster than I had ever felt before. Normally I am able to deep breathe to try to slow it down. However, this time it was beating so fast that I had to breathe really fast at the same time. I excused myself and went to lay down in the teacher's lounge. After about ten minutes it subsided and I was able to return to the meeting. I had some minor chest pain after. Is this an adrenaline rush? My question is also are there any long term effects from your heart racing like this? My fear is that when it is racing it will beat so fast that it will just stop. This really scares me and last night I could not breathe. I do have a cardiologist, but he just prescribes me Toprol and says I shouldn't worry. Thank you for reading this- I just needed to write about it and hear other experiences because I am feeling worried. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
