    I get palpatations around once a year, the first time I got was when I was 10, I was sitting down calmy and it happend, then it happend again after a year, and so on..now im 18.

    Recently I got palpatations, and it lasted 30 secs, BUT, it came back for another 30secs, and this was weird because as far as im concerned it only happens 'once' to me I dont ever ger palpatations 3 times in a row. Before this I was relaxed eating fruit, homealone, no stress, but I got really worried because the palpatations kept coming back and fourth.

    I told somebody afterwards and they said I should have gone to A&E, but I hesitated, I didn't want to make a fuss,

    Is this something to worry about?

    Palpatations... everyone gets them. Well, not everyone. I've had one that lasted a minute or two, I get them every so often, you can notice a pattern when you get them though, in terms of what sets it off... Standing up too fast and getting the classic "flash of white" has set it off once or twice for me when ive been tired.

    I get them, less now than I used to. Mine tend to last for hours on end, and nothing will stop them. As a result, the dr's told me lots about them so I didn't get worried. Mine start because my heart just.. accidentally sends an extra signal, so it has an extra beat, if that makes sense? They're only really a problem if they're lasting days on end, because then it'll tire your heart. The advice they've given me, is that if they last more than 45 minutes go to casualty. Otherwise, just sit quietly. There are a few things they've suggested to try and stop them, such as holding your nose and blowing, like your trying to pop your ears or something. Otherwise it was massaging an artery in your neck... But I think you'd have to be shown that one. And its very uncomfortable. Neither stop mine though....
