Palpitations

I have had a feeling of a skipped heart beat, followed by an extra hard beat in the middle of my chest. First, is that considered a palpitation, or what is that?

Secondly, this feeling I described above comes when I lay down on my right side, if I laugh, cough, or bend down to pick something up. It doesn't happen while exercising or after eating, or anything like that. It almost seems to me as if something is pinched inside of my body when I move into a weird position. It started the day after I first went to my chiropractor, and didn't know if there could be any correlation. Just seems so odd that I've never had these before, and then they started after I went to the chiropractor. Could something have gotten lose?

I'm 28 with no real medical problems, and just concerned because it started out of the blue. I had an EKG, Echo Stress Test, and blood work, and nothing was found. Any thoughts or suggestions on whether or not it could be caused from something like a pinched nerve, cause I don't believe I'm a candidate for heart disease, and it seems as if the tests have ruled it out.

  • I am not very trusting of chiropractors right now. I looked up my symptoms and found a thread where a guy talks about working out constantly and feeling like he pinched something and then he starts with the same symptoms as me, which aren't obviously bone, neck, back problems. Also, my heart has done that and the doc says sometimes it just happens. Does your doc know you saw a chiropractor?
