I've had heart palpitations for about 7 years now. I'm not talking about my heart randomly racing. I mean there is a noticeable flutter, skipped beat feeling. It feels like something is kicking my heart from inside it. It feels like my heart "pops". It's torture. Sometimes its worse than others: sometimes I can't sleep, or even sit down. I want to stress the fact that my heart rate is not high. It's usually around 60. Yet the palpitaitons still happen. So it's not like I'm having panic attacks or being nervous or anything. I've tried everything to try to get them to go away, including beta blockers, flecainide, magnesium, and other home remedies. Nothing works. I had an ablation a long time ago, which didn't really do much, and cardiologists recommend I don't try it again. Most of these medicines, like beta blockers, slow down the heart. Again, I don't need my heart rate lowered, it's at about 60. I'm suffering every day. I'm out of options. I'm not considering suicide, but eventually that might be my only viable option. I cannot live like this forever. I just can't, and I'm out of options and out of hope. So I don't know how much longer I have before I go over the edge. I can;t sleep anymore without taking a xanax. I'm probably addicted to it now, that's just great. I can't sleep, sit down and watch a movie, or have any sense of comfort. No one knows what to do. Get a heart transplant? I probably wouldn't even qualify as this isn't "life threatening." I don't know if I'm here to ask for help or just to vent, because I'm sick of people giving me recommendations when I have tried every one of them unsuccessfully. Death is slowly becoming my only option, no matter how it comes
