    Then you know what a heart attack is like on a small scale. See people think a heart attack is major pain but in reality your heart just stops. Worst feeling ever.

    it does...I don't get it often (usually lasts a few minutes) but one time a few years ago, my heart was beating irregularly fast for like an hour. I was ready to go to emergency and probably should have. how long do yours last?

    I have some PVC's on a daily basis. If you are taking your pulse when it happens it feels like your heart stops for a split second. Actually it's just a skipped beat. Cardiologist said many people have them and they are pretty benign. Some people feel they can be tied into your vagus nerve. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to why they happen. It's an odd sensation when it happens but I have gotten somewhat used to it.

    I have it but it hasn't affected me. Yet. The only time it comes up is when I do a physical, whereby then she refers me to a cardio guy. Which then sets me up for a cardio workout. When then they promptly announces I'm good for rough sex and dismisses me.

    sounds like we have the same exact symptoms. just a few minutes. I remember feeling the exact same thing as a child. It still scary though.

    Sometimes when I drink I'll wake up at 3am with a rapid heartbeat. Kinda freaks me out. Has motivated me to cut down on drinking. Probably a good thing.

    How about your case, do you have trouble breathing for a split second? during the episode? Something just sucks the breath out of you.

    I've read up on it... Just something the body can do with toxins and shit from booze. Have noticed it a lot more with red wine and strong beers vs. vodka and bud light.
