Over the past 2 weeks, I noticed an increased frequecy of awareness of my heart beating very strongly every few beats (not consecutive beats). I've also noticed that when my heart does that, I miss a pulse when I check my pulse. It comes in spells when at rest, lasting a few minutes to 1-2 hours. No problems during running. Did a long run on sunday with no occurence of this phenomenon.
I used to get this sensation when I was running a year ago, but the heart would beat heavilyu just the once, then that's that. Not as recurrent as now. I've not changed my diet, not taken any meds, no change in coffee intake. I'm not in pain or dizzy during those 'attacks', just a strange sensation when my heart beats heavily.
If this is a known occurence in runners or most people, I don't really want to go and see my GP. Just wondered if anyone had similar experiences.
