It’s the beat then the pause and then the HARD beat. Some of you know exactly what I mean. That forceful beat brings a lot of relief after that PAUSE!!
Here’s the deal.
You will agree with me that any “EXTRA” heartbeat that you can physically feel in your body or neck can upset you.
Your heartbeat is not out of rhythm, it’s just that it feels like there is an “extra” beat and most of the time it feels “hard”. Sometimes also described as a”flip” or “jolt” of the heart and you are hyper-aware of your heart.
I have mentioned ectopic heartbeats in a few of my previous posts, and have spent many hours researching it and watching videos about it. The main reason is because I experience it from time to time. But whenever it strikes it gets personal.
It is one thing to read and write about it, but feeling it in your chest is something else. Then you get a real sense of this thing, this monster and the thoughts he brings with him.
MOST RECENT “ATTACK”
We were driving home, from Cape Town, two days after I did the Cape Town Cycle Tour, which I plan to write about when I felt something in my chest. Yes, it was my heart but the thing was I could feel it. For me, with my AFIB history, that usually is not a very good thing.
For now, I do not think that there is a link between my “possible” ectopic heartbeats and the 4:46 hour time of my 109 km Cape Town Cycle Tour.
I also have a “stubborn” heart that does not always beat the beat…..
I have lived with afib (atrial fibrillation) for a big part of my life. My first episode was when I was 24 but that actually is not the beginning of my heart story.
I want to share what I have seen, heard, felt, experienced, done, learned and also believe about afib and what it did to me and how it influenced and still influence’s me.
I know my story can help U. Continue reading About my heart and head→
