If it is stress or anxiety how do I deal with that ?

I have been having palputations since I was little, but I would only have one maybe once a month, and it was only one! now it seems like I am getting a heart rate that speeds up huge when I stand up, and slows quite significantly when I sit or lay down! I am also experiencing my childhood flutters more often then not! what could cause this? how do I get rid of it? if it is stress or anxiety how do I deal with that ? I am begging for some help, its like I can constantley feel my heart beating! also I had blood work done, and an ekg which came back all normal, I swear I am feeling this and it is ruining my life!

If the frequency has of episodes has increased you need more of a doctor, I agree Anxiety/Stress of the causes of the causes, but can be controlled easily in early stage, so don't leave it unsorted.

Last night while laying down, I suddenly felt light headed (like I was going to pass out), but what ran through my brain was that it was something to do with my heart (I have WPW ). I saw nor felt a change in my heart rate , and the light headedness subsided within a few minutes. I also began to feel feverish, but had no temperature. I also had mild diarhea, which is now a tad worse. I aslo had slight heartburn from just eating chili, but that went away by morning. Naturally, I felt anxious all night and had trouble sleeping. I managed to fall asleep twice, but woke up with a somewhat damp pillow. Other times when I fell asleep, I immediately woke up, as if I stopped breathing . I assume this has to do with the anxiety and nervouseness. I am a 30 year old male, and for the most part eat somewhate healthy. Can you advise me, or provide some reassurance? Thanks

My wife drank a glass of red wine, then excercised within 10 or 15 minutes. Then she ran for 10 minutes and had to stop, she felt dizzy and her heart rate went to 200 bpm. Her heart rate had remained the same for over an hour. Please let me know what we should do.

I am 23 3 weeks ago my heart rate was normal 70-80 beats per minute. Now my heart rate has been between 50-60 beats per minute for the last two weeks. I am not athletic the only thing that i can come up with is i just got off of clonazepam ( a benzodiazepine ) could that cause the decrease in my heart rate or should i go get it checked out at the hospital? I do not have palpitations, but do feel tired..
