Rapid Heart Beat

I'm 19 years old and have been experiencing rapid heart beats for the past year now. They seem to occur roughly about once a month, and they last anywhere from 5-25 minutes. The reason for my concern is that these rapid heart beats cause extreme dizzyness and of course chest pain. However, the strangest part is that once they start, these beats are so intense that they seem to shake my entire body until finally they are over. I'm also unable to walk properly while this is going on. I have seen my family doctor about this issue numerous times, and the only test they have run was an EKG which turned up completely normal. This is a serious concern of mine, and it scares me everytime it happens. I want to know if I should be calling an ambulance the next time this occurs, or if I should perhaps see another doctor?

  • I had severe palpitations (atrial fibrillation) several years ago. I went through exhaustive tests and treatment including electric shock, but nothing worked.Then I found an amazing website, www.mgwater.com. I now take about 3/4 grams (750 mg) of magnesium sulphate, and have not had symptoms for about 5 years. Magnesium oxide and similar magnesium compounds also work, but mag sulphate (epsom salts) is cheap and effective. It is often administered by IV injection as a first line of defense for suspected heart attack and angina, (and a whole lot of other ailments too).This website has been extensively researched. The medical profession need a good kick up the sensitive area for ignoring such overwhelming evidence.
