Hi y'all, I'm new here with a quick question. About a month ago I started having heart palpitations. My heart would beat really really hard for a time and then go back to normal for no apparent reason. I went to see the nurse practictioner two weeks ago. She did a couple of EKGs on me and said my heart rate was high (80-100 bpm). She told me to go home and write down when it would happen and take my pulse. According to the nurse, she wants to look for correlations between what I'm doing and when it occurs. I don't drink hardly any caffiene (average one glass of tea a week), don't smoke, drink, etc. I have found very limited info on this. It also seemed like she was more concerned with my heart rate (which I was told by a friend of mine who's a heart patient was normal) than the forceful beats. Can anybody help?
