Hey guys, I have had this problem since I was 7 years old and I am 19 now. For some reason, at times I feel a forced strong heart beat in my throat. I can be laying down or standing up but once in a while I feel these. I’m assuming it is not life threatening or else I would of been dead by now. It just kinda worries me because I don’t know what causes these. At times this unknown condition of mine brings me down a lot... I have told my doctor about this and my heart is normal according to his examinations. I remember when I was younger I would be terrified when it happened to me, and when I told my mom she said it was all in my head. Honestly I do not think it is imaginary, it even happens when I am not thinking about it. Some are really hard to a point where I flinch a little bit and at times some of them are soft were I barely feel them. When it happens it is not a constant beat it is just one single strong pound. If anyone has experienced this and know what it is please let me know. I feel like this has ruined my life a lot. I don’t know if these are ectopic heart beats or a heart mur mur. Or some kind of heart problem that has not been diagnosed.
