Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I have had missed beats and palpitations for 40 years and the doctors say there is nothing wrong with my heart. Echo gram shows slightly enlarged atrium. Symptoms are worse when lying down and often keep me awake at night. During the day I don't notice them as much but they start to be noticeable in the late afternoon. As the night wears on they decrease and are not there in the morning.I take all the above drugs at different times of the day and the vitamins in the morning.
From this study (8 months ago):
I have had intermitant heart palpitations over the past 10-15 years, but they have dramatically increased in the past few months.
From this study (8 months ago):
I was sleeping on my left side and suddenly my heart beat was very noticeable and fast, every two or three beats it would actually beat faster for a short series and start again. This went on for an hour and gradually subsided until I fell asleep. I had taken two aspirins which I take occasionally to get some relief from arthritis pain in my joints. I am overweight and recently started walking about 20 minutes twice a day.
