Re: Scared.. Could This Be Serious???
Zoeb...I would say with great certainty you did not have a heart attack. Are you known to have anxiety? What happened to you was probably a PVC and you will see from this board and some of the posts, it is very common. I would mention it to your doctor though if this is something very new. But many of us have had our 1st experience and it has scared the beejeebees out of us, and after having it looked into found it is so very common. The more you worry or panick about it the more often you may notice the episodes happening. Magnesium is wonderful for heart palps especially if you are not one to get alot of green veges in your diet. As we get a little older (and some young) our magnesium is not high enough and this alone can cause them. The fact that you felt panic is normal...who likes that sensation ..it is scary. Read the post"Advice for first time pvc'ers" This will ease your mind......L
The post I mentioned is on the page 2 of this board.
