I thought I'd post here just to get this out of my head. I have been experiencing heart palpitations on and off for years now. I've had an EKG and they say everything is normal. I mostly believe that, except when it gets really bad, and my heart starts beating wildly and irregularly--doing flips in my chest, and pulling crazy stunts. It's very hard to ignore when it is really bad, and hard to ignore even when it's mild. To be honest its driving me a little bonkers because it will be present sometimes for 8 hours or more a day, and often well into the night while I'm sleeping. And then some days it will disappear and I feel fine. I can't find a link between when it's fine and when it's not. I definitely don't feel like I'm under any particular stress right now other than the usual...but I do feel like my body has lost the ability to deal with any level of stress after years of so much stress and trauma that it kind of broke my "gauge" if you will. I guess I'm in semi-permanent fight or flight now, or something like that. Even when I'm having a perfectly relaxing day at home drinking tea my body can still be acting like its in the danger zone. Mentally I feel fine, but the physical symptoms create their own anxiety, so then I become anxious about the symptoms, and I guess that's its own feedback loop. I also have a recurring eye twitch, and the heart palpitations and eye twitching seem to trade on and off for kicks--when one gets bored the other takes over, like they are playing a game of tag. Fun! I've tried meditating and breathing exercises, and it doesn't affect these symptoms in the slightest. Not one iota. So of course then I feel frustrated, and that probably adds to the stress. I'm going to just let it all be, Try to accept it without judgement, feel the palpitations and twitching and observe them with "gentle curiosity" as they say, and not try to fix or change anything. Onward!
