| | Noticeable, Heavy Heartbeat
Lately I've been getting this noticeable, heavy, and possible irregular heartbeat when I sleep and after I wake up.
This has been going on since around October or November. It used to happen infrequently, but now has been happening every time I sleep. This heartbeat also used to calm down by the time I was ready for my day, but now it's been lasting longer and longer (for example it's been an hour since I woke up and I can still feel it).
I don't know what to do, since it makes me uncomfortable and very slightly nauseous.
If anyone has any ideas of what it could be, please let me know!
(Also, I've recently developed an addiction to caffeine. I've been two days without it and I intend to continue. I'm not sure if that would effect this.)
((I was also hospitalized two years ago after arriving at an emergency room dehydrated with a stomach flu, and I was transported to the ICU of a hospital due to an irregular, fast heartbeat that they couldn't slow down. It calmed down though and I was released the next day. Not sure if that's related since it happened so long ago.)
