Re: My heart feels like it almosts stops!
I had this happen to me. It would happen from time to time, then one night started happening more frequently. It would make me kinda light headed for a split second, and to me felt like my heart was skipping a beat. Eventually I got so freaked out, I drove myself to the emergency room. Luckily it was about 3am and there were no cars on the road because I had to be doing about 100 mph the entire way. Once I got in the hospital and hooked to the EKG, I calmed down, and it never happened. The emergency doc on call was new, which was kinda good for me, because she refered me to a cardiologist. The cardiologist was and older guy with a ton of experience who knew his job inside out. He explained the situation to me and said it happens to most people, but that most don't realize it. He then said it was ridiculous that a 25 year old man would be refered to a cardiologist for this. lol
From my perspective, I was glad I was, because having a guy who obviously knows what he's talking about tell me it was fine really helped. In fact, this was 5 years ago, and I can count on one hand the number of times I have noticed my heart do this since.
