Re: Fast pulse - getting faster and faster...
It is not normal or healthy for a heart to beat fast ALL the time! There are inexpensive medications which can slow the heart down to a healthy rate, although they do come with side effects. For instance, the one I take, to slow down my heart, is Digoxin which has been around for hundreds of years, and is $10, without insurance, for a three month's supply.
The heart is "designed" to rest between beats. The health of a heart could be negatively effected if it is constantly under the pressure of a fast, stressful beat.
