My doctor wanted me to have a 24 hour heart monitor because I was getting what I call “thumps”. I can only describe it as the heart stops for a second, then gives a huge squeeze and continues normally. I was getting these at night after dinner or when I walked. Sometimes it would happen for no apparent cause.
Yesterday I had the monitor hooked up and wouldn’t you know it, in the entire 24 hour period, I walked up inclines, ate a heavy Indian meal, and not one “thump”! Never fails! All I can do is just laugh.
