Hi, I do not suffer from panic attacks of any sort but sometimes I might get up from the sofa quickly or expend a quick burst of energy and this will cause my heart to begin beating extremely fast (around 190bpm). It can continue beating like this for 20 minutes on some occasions. The doctors say I either have panic attacks or I am just overly aware of my heart beat. None of which are true. Doctors have been unable to capture one of these occurrences with an ECG. Any ideas?
