Last night i was having a symptom i seem to have often when im sick.
I have bad acid reflux and lactose intolerance (minor) and sometimes i get sick and dry heave
When i was over the toilet on my hands and knees i noticed my heart rate going fast, then slowing down for a couple beats and repeating that process. When i got up and moved back to my recliner it stopped.
This is something that normally causes anxiety but i did not take a xanax because i had to be up for work in an hour and a half anyway.
my BP was on the high side , 133/77, but again, stress.
Have you ever heard how the CNS controls heart rate? It's a bit complicated, but the CNS will send signals to your heart to speed up or slow down given certain situations. If you do something called a valsalva maneuver, where you hold your breath and force your diaphragm up, you can really slow your heart rate. I'm thinking what happened is along those lines. It's the only thing I can think of.
