Re: Heart problems with CFS

I have had lots of heart palpitations since I contracted EBV. I have not had my heart checked as I had done so 2 years earlier for PVCs when I had gone through a terribly stressful time. I am just assuming that the virus is putting a tremendous stress on my body and mind and I tend to get the flutters and skipped beats when I am sick or stressed. I don't know if that is the same in your case, but it just helps me calm myself when I get them. They used to scare me so badly. Now that I know that the doctor said my heart is fine and they are just an annoyance, I can deal with them.
