Re: heart fluttering scares me
Fluttering of the heart, skiped heart beats, ect, are all very common and are not lethel. However (and I get these too), while you are in SVT (which is probally what you have), it feels like you are going to die. It's nothing to worry about, however, if it pirsists for long periods of time you are going to want to go the the ER so they can stop it. You can stop it on your own by trying certian methods, some of which include lying on your back and wetting your face with ice cold water.
By the way, scared girl, share your story! http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=340227 lol
Timber, I have another question for you. If a person does not die from heart fluttering (soft heartbeats which may be up to 200 bpm?), why do they have to goto the ER (according to another one of your posts)? Is this just to stop the fluttering if it doesnt go away after a while?
