If it starts up again, see a doctor. It sounds a lot like my A-fib. It is not much of a bother since they put me on Coumadin.

After having had a heart attack at 46, and an episode of Atrial Fib last year, I say don't second guess.....Call the doctor and if he can't get you in right away, go to emergency. Life is too dear to take chances.

There are many possible causes. It could be hyperthyroidism. Either way, you need to see a doctor.

Definity see your doctor, the sooner the better. Your being manic shouldn't effect your heart much more than to raise your pulse rate a little bit.

Sarah, isn't it? I just replied to another of your threads - hope I've got the name right - I'm horrible with names.
I would say you should definitely go to your doctor and tell him/her about your symptoms and ask him/her lots of questions. I have Dilated Cardiomyopathy, most likely caused from a flu virus attacking my heart. It damaged the heart and one of the 4 quadrants is stretched and floppy so before I got my pacemaker, I could feel it flopping when it tried to keep up with it's normal function. Because it couldn't function properly, my heart rate was irregular and often felt like it was right in my throat. Now with the pacemaker, I seldom feel the pounding or the flopping, etc. There are many reasons why yours could be acting up but your own doctor's advice and opinion should be sought.
I don't know much, if anything, about your mania being triggered by your dieting but as in all things, moderation is the best and perhaps you need to slow your weight loss program down until your system is comfortable with it? We all want to lose and lose quickly but they keep telling us that slow loss is the best. I lost a great deal very quickly and quickly became overmedicated. As a result, my kidneys acted up and decided they'd had enough and were going to take a holiday. I had to go off several meds for about 6 weeks which really messed up my heart issue and my diabetes. I've been able to stay off some and have less of others now because of the loss but it will be awhile before my system catches up with the changes - something we always have to watch for if we are on medication. Stay in touch with your doctor particularly while you are dieting and bring these changes to his/her attention - the mania and the issues with your heart and ask the whys and wherefors etc.

Does anybody have any knowledge of when their heart pounds really really hard and skips around and jumps around? Is this serious? Should i go to a doctor for this? Have you had it and did you go to a doctor? After having this a couple of years ago, I had an experience of pain in the heart area and left arm. Later, a doctor said, "Sounds like you had a heart attack." He did a lot of tests and said I had no residual damage. I have always had a very strong heart, but I am older now. Is this a common problem in senior citizens? Should I be worried? I have looked it up on the internet and they are very vague. Now I notice it whenever I don't get enough sleep. Sleep is a problem because of my depression and mania. The exercising and dieting at spark is sparking mania in me. The whole thing is a mess. Any ideas? Any similar experiences? s
