Hey everyone!

I was just wondering how frequent (if at all) you skip a heartbeat thats is associated with your ME?

As for me sometimes I feel it when I lay down in bed - it almost feeling like its jumping for a beat or two! Then other times it feels like a flutter.

What are your experiences?

    Hi folks

    Yes, I've had this for years - ever since I had ME the first time. It started off as a flutter but is now quite a strong sensation. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does, it usually goes on for several days. I've been checked over and all seems fine - and I'm still alive!! But it is a strange sensation, but all part of the jolly ME! :roll:

    Well, the wedding was perfect - even the weather was kind to us thank goodness. I didn't feel too bad on the day and managed quite well - but felt my face looked tired which will be most attractive in the photos!! :roll:

    But I am now trying to recover - I feel as if someone has sandpapered my throat and implanted marbles in neck, underarms and groin :oops: and then stamped all over me in the night. So I am just taking things really quietly now - having said that my daughter and new husband will shortly be delivering their very bouncy Staff dog and indoor cat on us for two weeks, whilst they go to Barbados! :dog: :cat: - my hubbie and I are secretly thinking of booking them into a local kennels and cattery - at least they won't be able to tell on us!!!

    Hope everyone is okay - it's still very slow trying to make a posting - I think we are all in danger of falling asleep before doing so. :zzz:

    Glad I made you laugh, Jay :lol:

    My heart nearly stopped today. On my way back from the school run my car was rear-ended by an idiot woman who had not realised I had stopped :evil:

    Spent all morning sorting out insurance and trying to head off a full blown stress attack! :weird:

    I seem ok but my car is poorly :doctor:

    Hi, well I've finally got here, but how long before I get kicked out remains to be seen.

    Yes, I get the palpitations too, sometimes more than others.

    Today as well, my chiropractor has agreed with my GP that I most probably also had Fibromyalgia. I am going to try and post about it but just thoughtI'd get that in, in case I get chucked out in a minute. :roll:

    Katie, your wedding photos are gorgeous. HOpe you soon recover well. smile

    Love Alisia x
