Once you lie down, and your heart starts pounding, does it continue to pound all night long, regardless of whether or not you get out of bed?
Once your heart starts pounding, how long does it continue to pound?
Does the pounding keep going regardless of whether or not you sleep on your right side of your left side or your back?
Do you get the pounding EVERY night, or, sometimes, can you sleep all night without the pounding?
