    Its normal for your heart to do this when your anxious, it happens to me too, infact its happening right now lol.. The more anxious you get the worse it gets and it'll turn into a horrible cycle, sit somewhere peaceful and do some breathing exersises to slow your heart rate down; in through your nose 5 seconds and out through your mouth slowly, keep repeating this until you atleast feel a bit more calmer, hope this helps xx

    It's because your anxious, I get this all the time sometimes even when I'm not anxious it's my anxiety making sure i know it's still there! If it makes you feel better go to your doctor and get checked for your reassurance but don't pay too much attention to these skipped beats there usually nothing more than an annoyance it's rubbish! Just try to chill out and whatever is making you anxious you need to sort out it will make the anxiety subside and the palpitations should too smile

      Yes you can get them when you don't feel anxious, basically our nervous system is over sensitive and slight things can trigger it off. Please don't waste a year like I have worrying! I've had tests and I'm fine although I don't feel it, I'm starting to get on with my life because I won't let this anxiety win and you can't! Please don't worry about sudden death, it's very low risk and if it happened to you you wouldn't even know. Just live for today and don't let the palps win they really are just annoying anxiety symptoms. Live your life smile message me anytime I know what your going through x

    Hi just wanted to know if you have seen a Dr at all ? My friend had a heart manner that could only be found when she gets excited or anxious or working or something where it got your heart beating hard. Maybe something to look into. Does it only happen when you are having a attack or does it do it when working out to. If only when having a attack you are just fine . Please let us know how you are doing

      Your in luck you will be just fine your heart is most likely not even doing anything out of the ordinary its just when you have a attack your body release so much adrenaline and your muscles get tight and you feel stuff different I use to think mine was doing the same thing until I had a attack at the Dr and they had me on the heart thing and the thing so I could hear it myself it was doing the same thing just faster even when it felt like it was not

      You will be fine 😊 it still scares me some times IV had the problem for years now. Just a little trick that helped me alot even after I found out it helped me pull it together fast. They make watchs and other things that you can press you finger on and it will show you what your heart beat is I liked the watch because you can use it anywhere and no one else will know I payed like $26 on eBay for mine

      The good news is that nobody has ever had a heart problem well having a attack because when you have one your heart stops and when your having a attack it beats faster and harder . Also yes there is only a few reasons it will stop 1 if you have a problem with it or your blood which kind of falls under the same thing2 your just that old that its just used up we will say 3.something interrupt's the beat of it. Like being hit by lightning

      Demilee, think about this logically. Sudden cardiac Death doesn't give you any warning symptoms at all. Your heart just stops beating and you die.

      What you are describing is anxiety - which can make you more sensitive to strange feelings around the heart. You're definitely going to die - we all are - but at your age it won't be through sudden cardiac death! You'll probably live till you're ninety years old.
