    Yes. Your definitely not alone there. I am very self aware of my heart especially when I have palpations, the fluttery feeling or the THUMB heart beat where it feels like your heard stops or skips a beat ..I just / am having a full work up beacuse of these and so far everything has come back fine.

      yes same I’m wearing a holter monitor right now I take it off on Wednesday and probably won’t know anything for two weeks after that but I feel it almost constantly and it’s driving me insane. I’ve been to the ER 3 times because of it and every time they say I’m fine

      do you get the random sharp pains in and around your chest and ribs? That freaks me out too.

    I get the same thing, palpitations, but my anxiety/ptsd has me hesitant to go to the doctor. It took me a long time to just walk into the lab or pharmacies…….ugh!

      are your palpitations like constant? Mine like won’t go away. From the time I wake up til I got to bed. It’s like I can constantly feel a buzzing or like electricity in my chest

    I feel like mine are constant lately…..they feel more like my stomach is rumbling lightly in my chest and throat. It’s so weird and then I get anxious. I’m tired of feeling this way…..

      mine is like all day everyday it feels like a ball of energy in my chest and upper abdomen but also like a pulse in the bottom of my throat and it will not go away no matter what I do

        - do you take any anxiety meds? I take hydroxyzine as needed (which is a lot anymore) and sometimes I think the palpitations are caused from it. I’m glad the next 2/3 weeks with not having to pick up my niece from school will give me a break from having to take the meds…..the driving stresses me out so … this will be my own little test….

    Oh yeah, this happens with anxiety. Heart palpitations are not harmful ❤️ you are completely safe, just very hyper aware of your body and anxiety also causes heart palpitations ( especially when you are extra anxious)
