Heart Palps when leaning Forward....

Postby carphia on January 24th, 2012, 11:18 pm

Subject title says it all. I caught myself countless times leaning forward and somehow in the process triggering a heart palp or two. Anyone ever experienced that? For those that experience heart palps, do you notice any repetitive actions that bring them on?

a-ha! Love you ash! Every time I lay down on my bed I get one before I even hit the bed! My body just seems to time everything.

Carm,
This is SO VERY common. I've had palps since I was 18 (20 years!). If I had a nickel for everytime I got one when I bent over or looked down, I'd be a millionairre! Don't worry about these. -Matt

I wonder is there any kind of connection between bfs and heart palpitations or arrythmia, I have had irregular heartbeats in the past, a little flicker or irregularity in the electrical beating of the heart that occurred at random moments, freaked me out when it happened to begin with, had various heart checks done, they found nothing, still happens every now and then, more than likely our old friend anxiety again

I am not sure. I have had irregular heart beat for years and have had those 24 hour monitors with the little box to carry around on the waste a number of times. I have iron overload so I have to monitored every once in a while.

I have had heart palpitations pretty much all my life and BFS for the past 3 1/2 years. Im going to be seeing a cardiologist within the next week due to the increase severity of the palpitations. Would be nice if it were somehow tied with the fasciculations and I could get both of them taken care of at once!

I've been meaning to reply to this for days. I have so many heart palpitations a day they may actually outnumber my twitches these days. I had a rough nights sleep last night so I decided at one point to sit up and read. I was reading while laying on my left side and the palps started and wouldn't stop until I rolled over on the right side and coughed hard several times.

I've been to the cardiologist and had the whole series of tests and blood work done. Everything is fine, but what I'm having are PVCs and sometimes when they occur one right after the other they feel scary. I especially notice them happening in sets when I exercise or when I'm anxious. My cardiologist had me wear a monitor for a month to record them, and for whatever reason they always happen when I lay on my left side. You could tell on my monitor when I rolled over to my left side because the PVCs would start.

At times I experience dizziness and sweating along with them, although it's hard to tell if that's the anxiety or the heartbeat.

Johnny,
your maneuver and probability might be doing you wrong, mine are usually triggered not always completely bending over, but leaning forward the slightest to the left, but also for me they tend to happen under certain circumstances :D



Plainslady,
Interesting you mentioned the left side, mine seems to get triggered that way too. Def agree with you on the anxious part, it sets off a frenzy of them instantly.

i get this a loooooooooot! most common time is when i just get into bed and begin to rest my back then it kicks in, also if i lean forward not completely bending my back though, when i go for a run/jog and some other random movements can trigger it. ive had them for years, but i do get it more often nowadays, though saying that i dont think ive had it in the last couple weeks.... ITS ALL SO UNPREDICTABLEEEEE AAAAAAAAARGGHHH :lol: :lol:
