Im 29yo male, 5'11, 160..In overall good health..But for several years I have had palpitations, I have had stress tests, echos, ekgs, and also wore 48-hour monitors and all claimed that my palps were benign...Lately, when I lay on my stomach to take a nap, I can't seem to drift off because I feel my heart beating, not racing, just beating a bit too fast for laying down...But when I go to bed, I usually don't notice it (I sleep on my back at night) Could this be a heart issue, or just laying on my stomach causing my heart to beat faster? What could cause this? Like I said, I had numerous tests and none were deemed to be serious...My usual heart rate is anywhere from 78-88.
I have given up trying to figure my heart out in the way it beats when I sit up , lie down, turn on my sides, my stomach, etc, etc, etc.
Your heart will beat a bit faster usually every time you move. Some hearts seem to be like a thriller movie and get excited when you toss and turn, sit up or lie down.
I have been to cardiologists, tests, Emergency rooms when my beats have been playing like a jukebox on drugs and all cannot see any danger or issue apart from Ectopic beats and PVC's, all harmless they say.
Don't worry. I mean you could have every test under the sun, and it could show your heart to be healthy, no blockages, etc, etc. And people will still get these things happening.
Can it be explained, most of the times, no. Is it dangerous, 99.9% of the time in a healthy heart, not one little bit.
