Question about Heart Palpitations

I, too, have MVP. Please don't forget to mention that you have MVP to your doctor and to the hospital when you go for your pre-op. They will probably order some prophylactic antibiotics before you go to the OR. They gave me some in my IV.

You probably already knew that, but thought I would mention it. Your surgery will be 3 days before my 1 year hysterversary. Good luck and be sure to keep us posted.

Freaky feeling

The first 'flutter' I can recall was when I was 30. It lasted about 3 seconds and felt like a crazy bouncing heart beat all out of sync and very quick and strong, like it couldn't find it's rythm. Right about when I started to panic it was gone but I must have an adrenaline rush afterward because there is always a very slight panic-sweat that follows, barely noticeable. I don't get them that often but have noticed that since after my hyst I do experience them more often, or maybe I pay more attention to them now?

I had a real scare last week driving to Fort Worth with my daughter and while driving 'boom' it started but scared the daylights out of me because it didn't pass quickly as they always have in the past. It lasted for at least 20 full seconds. I pulled the car over to the side of the road in a panic and was getting ready to call 911 when I realized I hadn't keeled over dead yet and told myself to calm down. Then a couple of seconds after that they stopped and it's been almost a week.

I was horrified and am still very scared. I talked to my mom about it and she said she has had them her entire life (she's 70 now) and that when one hits she just calms down and it passes.

I had no idea they could be related to hormones. I'm on 1.25 Premarin so it seems like that should be ample although I have noticed lately I have very dry skin which I haven't had a problem with in quite a while.

It's hard to remain calm with your heart trying to jump through your chest.
