I am a 26 year old male that has been cursed for a few years of skipped heartbeats out of nowhere and sometimes a racing heart that I stop by crouching, putting my knees to my chest and do deep breathing. This stops the racing normally but a couple times I’ve played basketball and got bumped and then my heart just took off racing. I have been to my doctor and she tells me it’s nothing to worry about it’s just a normal thing and my anxiety makes me feel them and makes them worse. I sometimes get skipped beats all day for days straight then get some with none. I wore a Holter monitor once when I was in my early teens and docs said nothing and once again 2 years ago and again doc said nothing alarming. I have a hard time playing these off as anxiety due to the fact they are random and come when I’m not even worried about anything. Also just 3 days ago I jogged 2 miles with no break in 30 min and I did get heart skips while running, if I had to guess I’d say maybe 10-12 times. But I wasn’t extremely winded or collapsing, so maybe my heart is strong? I guess I’m just wondering if anyone els goes through this and maybe some advice. Thanks.
