It never ceased to creep me out. I m a melancholic so it s natural for me to be stressful, but there are moments when I m not stressed and I still feel the palpitations . . . Weird? What s more amusing is that I ve had it since I was fifteen. A few years have passed since then. And I normally do not intake caffeine , unless you include tea. I never drink coffee. It s weird because I feel as though something s wrong with my heart and I m eventually gonna have a heart failure (at the merciful age of se--I mean, eighteen). Which also reminds me that I visited my family doctor concerning this issue approx. 8-9 months ago, and all that was said to me is that it s nothing to worry about. However, I only undergone one simple pulse test. I m not exactly saying that I do not trust the words of a doctor. But in the end I m an individual with little assurance of words spoken by only one person. I m sorry to trouble ye, dear members of this cute community. And thank you in advance. To answer the questions below, I do not smoke. However, I do intake low quantities of wine from time to time.. Update: I do not workout at all. I do take a walk once a month, if it s of any significance. I m not active physically at all. I m also not on any medications whatsoever. I refuse to consume chemicals of any sort.
