Over the past 4-5 years I have had this intermittent feeling come over me that is difficult to explain so I am just wondering if anyone else has had this?
The best way to explain it is it feels just like the feeling you get when going down the big hill at the beginning of a roller coaster ride. There is a sort of flutter/pressure feeling that starts right below the sternum and goes up into my throat. Only lasts for 2-3 seconds and then its gone. Sometimes its a single event others it may come and go for a minute or two and then be gone. Some feel more intense than others, and with the more intense ones I usually feel really weak as soon as it happens for a while. Most of the time the feeling is relatively light and no weakness.
The weird thing is that there is no real pattern. Sometimes I can do certain things to trigger it like for instance if I sit with my elbows on the table and my chin resting on my hands. Sometimes driving with my left hand or riding my motorcycle will trigger it. The occasionally when I bend over then raise up it will trigger it.
I have been checked out by the cardiologist with EKG's, holter monitors for 3 days at a time everything comes back normal. Have had chest xray's, echo's etc. all blood work is normal. Doctor has chalked it up to PVC's and possible PAC's which he did see a few on the holter report. Funny thing is I only felt it one time during those 3 days. Anyway long story short does anyone else experience this roller coaster feeling in their throat. Never really has felt like my heart was racing or flipping around most of the feeling is centered in my throat.
