    Get an EKG and see a specialist ASAP!

    My wife had some freaky heart problems and put it off because she was so young. When she passed out, then died and had to be shocked 7 times to get her heart back, she stated to take it seriously and got her problem fixed.

    When I used to take Ripped Fuel it would make my heart skip beats etc.
    Either way, get your ass in and get an EKG and some bloodwork.

    It often isn't anything to worry about. However, you can only afford to be an optimist...when you can afford to be wrong.

    Definitely make an appointment with your doc and get it worked up. You only have one heart, and it's kinda important, so don't put it off.

    I like to joke around a lot, but in this case I'm deathly serious. Make an appointment tomorrow.

My resting pulse is 55-60 and the only change in my diet is I started taking D3 and omega 3 supplements last week. I stopped taking them when this started but it is still doing it. Other than the weird feeling it has no other effect on me. I have been running every morning with no problems.

    Anyone have this? The general concensus on the internet says it's nothing to worry about.
    Do you trust "the internet" with your life?
    It IS probably nothing, but you are a 40-something year old guy, and fatal arrhythmias do sometimes appear out of thin air.
    Get it checked.

    yeah, I'm with everyone else here, even though the heart bearts with regularity in most people, dysrhythmias do occur periodically .Most don't mean nothin' but for your sake, get yourself checked out,please.
    "Upon the demise of the best Airborne Plan, a terrifying effect occurs on the Battlefield. This effect is known as the 'Rule of LGOPs' .This is, in it's purest form, small groups of pissed-off 19 year old American Paratroopers. They are well trained. They are armed to the teeth and lack serious Adult Supervision. They collectively remember the Commander's intent as ' march to the sound of the guns and kill anyone not dressed like you.' "

    I just Googled some shit.
    I think it is your prostate. The really deep prostate, not just the regular one.
    You will want to tell the doc to go elbow deep to check it out.
