We didn't have a poll last Friday, so i'll make one to make up for Av being slack.

I'm sat at my desk at work, and I feel 'hollow' just where my heart is, it only lasts a second.

I ignore it, but a few minutes later I feel it again, I feel 'hollow' or like it's fluttering.

I ignore it, and a fair few minutes later, it happens again.

I don't have trouble breathing when it happens, it doesn't hurt, I don't get pins and needles up my arm, chest or jaw, it just feels like my heart is every now and again skipping a beat ( though I am seeing Helen this Sunday :) )

Am I going to die? ( because of my heart, not Helen )

Can you separate the two? I think not.

But go tell a doctor what you described here. I hear y'all's medical services totally suck but I don't know first hand how true or false that is. Assuming it is even only a little bit true all the more reason to act sooner not later. If you have a problem a single little prescription can save you life. Go do it now. No shit.

I haven't even finalised the arrangements! The hit man can't get paid until after payday so you're safe until then at least.

From what you describe, sounds like some manner of arrythmia


Go get an ekg to be sure. Hell, just worrying about it can make that shit happen.

Well, I do have a high caffeine intake, i'll cut down on that and see if that improves things

if i'm still feeling 'different' by then i'll head down the doctors

Thanks all for your input :)



Though not a single one of you has said you love me :cry:


That's ok though, I don't love you either :P

I said "Yes" - it's tough love. Also, the "Other" option is class.
