    Default what is with my heart?

    For about oh 2 years now my heart as done this really strange thing about every 2-3 weeks. Its going to be hard to explain so bear with me.

    My heart will beat normal for about 2 or 3 weeks then all of a sudden it will go to this really strange HARD slow beat, it kind of feels like it needs to burp, or burp out super big balls of blood. Sometimes its painful, and sometimes its just uncomfortable. It lasts about 15 minutes then its gone. Theres no other symptom with it at all.

    This cant be normal can it? I'll admit I have been putting it off as normal, and just ignoring it, but now its happening more often, and really getting annoying. Nothing brings it on, and its completely unpredictable when its going to happen.

    I thought about that, but with it being so random, but monthly, wouldnt it be like a hit or miss type thing?

    I have the same thing and it actually misses a beat, the pounds slow & hard in catch-up phase. It's an arrythmia, but they couldn't catch it with an ECG.

    yeah totally feels like it stops beating then needs to catch up...Im glad someone knows what I am trying to explain. Im not going to say that that is in fact what it is, but is it really needed that I go and see my doctor?

    any chance you might have mitral valve prolapse? it's not uncommon, but can cause changes in the heartbeat.

    i get more of a feeling of skipped beats every few weeks. had them A LOT during pregnancy. it's a weird fluttery feeling......and i get them more often during PMS.

    dont' quote me on this but i'm quite certain that anemia can cause palpitations....i remember reading it when i was pregnant because i was having so many of them and my iron was low.

    my sister tends to be on the severely anemic side too, and i know she's had issues with that too.

    still good to check with the dr. though just to reassure yourself?

    Just at least go, ask, and see if they pursue it.

    I can't help but I agree you should maybe mention it to your doctor to be safe.

    It might be thyroid. Get your doc to do a blood test. They can also hook you up to a holter monitor for 48 hrs and see if anything shows up during that time.

    If your heart beats normally then there is a bit of a pause then a big catch up beat it could be PAC's or premature atrial contractions; I have this plus another arrhythmia. I would suggest talking to your doctor and you may? wind up doing a halter monitor test. I've had 2 of these done so far, a 24 hr one at age 20 and a 48 hr at age 35. It's a good way to monitor what your heart is doing over several hours, but your doctor will know whether to send you to a cardiologist for this test if nothing shows up in an ECG.

    Good luck and I hope you'll get to a doctor to find out what's happening. NOT knowing can cause stress and the symptoms to worsen.
