They say I'm Crazy but I have a Good Time
I'm just looking for clues at the scene of the crime...

24 hours on a heart monitor just a couple panic attacks trying to creep in then around noon some tachycardia out of the blue when they didn't stop I took a deep breath and a Zanax and waited it out but I didn't feel the fluttering like the rhythm in me is out of step.

It feels like one part beats at the wrong time and when shirtless you can see it moving the skin under the chest like in the first Alien movie but just my luck nothing.

It's like taking your car to a shop and explaining an odd problem and it never happens when you need to show the mechanic...

I keep on goin' guess I'll never know why.

I've had tachycardia intermittently since I was about 12...was put on a muscle relaxant for back spasms, and they forgot to tell me not to do any strenuous exercise. Meanwhile, I'm on the long distance track team, running 5 miles in 95 degree heat and 95% humidity. Can you say "heart attack at 12?" Yup. Just dinged the timing circuitry, so every now and again I get the flutter. A good hard cough or two and it's gone.

Not all tachycardia, particularly in the absence of other cardiac symptoms, is a cause for worry. Particularly if you're having panic attacks...that can bring on all kinds of weird cardiac-like symptoms that aren't really dangerous. A friend of mine who has panic attacks will turn blue and almost pass out...he has high blood pressure and it crashes during a panic attack. I make him sit down and breathe in a paper sack for hyperventilation.

Hang in there. :o)
