Not sure if there is any info about this out on the internet but hopefully someone can give me some advice.
So a few days ago i was laying in bed trying to get to sleep and all of a sudden i felt my heart miss a beat (felt like it stopped for a short moment) then thud into action again and race for a few seconds whilst my initial panic wore off, I didn't think too much of it at the time as everything seemed to go back to normal right after.
The following day I felt like it happened a few more times but not as noticeable as the first, but i was defiantly more aware of how my upper stomach and chest were feeling.
That night i woke up twice in a confused and panicked state where again my heart was racing, I decided not to go back to sleep and stayed up most of the night worrying that something was wrong with me.
Today just about 15 minutes ago whilst sat at my desk at home I felt my heart skip a beat again and got up to walk about, I decided to see if I was able to recreate the scenario when it happened the first time in my bed so I lay in my bed and tried breathing deeply for some reason i found that breathing deeply into my chest seemed to slow my heart rate briefly, I then tried breathing deeply into my stomach and when fully inhaled i found that my heart would feel like or actually miss a beat, I was too scared to hold my breath like that for long because it was uncomfortable.
I'm wondering if this is normal or if there is anything i should be looking out for as far as signs of something wrong with my body.
Id like to note that I'm 24 years old, I have had some issues with GERD's in the past but it will flare up from time to time and since having the missed beat symptoms iv had a very tight upper back.
