| | Water??? Anyone Else Have This Problem???
This isn't really new, at least not for me, but now I have a place to talk about it and it happened while I was taking a bath tonight so I started to wonder if this happens to other people and what could be causing it.
Whenever I am submerged to the level of my chest in water, I notice an increase in frequency and severity of palpitations. It doesn't seem to matter what type of water, what position I'm in, or the level of exertion involved. It happens if I'm splashing around in a pool or standing calmly, or even sitting in the shallow part. It happens if I'm in chlorine or bromine pools, as well as when I'm swimming in the ocean. And as I mentioned earlier it even happens if I'm lying down in the bath.
The only thing I can think of, is that the pressure of the water on my chest is making me more *aware* of something that is occurring anyway. I suppose that is quite possible since to a large extent I think my brain is so used to my heart's "wierdness" that I don't conciously process a lot of what I feel unless I'm particularly thinking about it.
