I check my pulse every once in a while and sometimes I won t feel it for 10 minutes straight. Why does my heart stop for this long? I don t have health insurance so I don t know what I m going to do about this. The money just isn t there. I just had my transmission rebuilt on my car and gas prices are killing me. Are there any over the counter pills I can take for this problem? I have a feeling that if I don t do something about it, that it is going to kill me.
