    Sudden slow down of heart? God only knows.

    Sometimes I will either be laying down or sitting down or pretty much not doing anything physical, my heart is fine...however, if i get up to do something, or especially if sitting on the ground, my heart will slow down to a crawl and beat really hard for about 3 seconds. Or if I get mad or angry it will sometimes beat really hard. I am afraid. It seems nobody knows what is going on...does this happen to anyone else...i dont know what it is.

    It happened tonight and my heart rate dropped to 55 bpm for a quick moment then up to 79 then to my norm.

    The only thing I can think of is due to my obesity and poor physical shape (I am working on it) the sudden change in movement creates a sudden demand in my heart where it pumps harder at first then speeds up to where it needs to be.

    Less than a year ago I had an echo, EKG, strip monitor, and 10 day holter monitor and all they found was high blood pressure and 2 pvc's.

    Are you exercising? Even walking for 30 minutes a day can help with PVCs and high blood pressure. I am on meds, but even after starting to walk every day my pressure has gone down at least 5-10 points and the pvcs are like maybe one a day.
    I have also seen where my bpm is down to like 50 about 5 minutes after walking. Any kind of activity will raise your bp and bpm even if its getting up off the couch.
    I have lost 10 pounds in a couple of months and have already seen a difference. Probably could have lost more but the holidays get in the way.
