Question: Inside Out Heartbeat?


 usarmy79 - Sat Jun 11, 2005 11:40 am

This is something that happens pretty rarely, but I notice it every time. I can be sitting still, calm, and rested, and I will feel my heart beat, but it feels like it's "inside out" like my chest wants to sink in. I don't know what this is and I have been having this feeling off and on for several years. :?:

Thanks
Chuck

User avatar It is more than likely palpitations, or PVCs. They are harmless and everyone experiences them at some point. You should go ahead and see a doctor just to rule out any abnormalities, but if you have no other symptoms and no risk factors, it more than likely isn't heart disease.
