Thanks to all for the support I've given for my ongoing issue (about 9 days now) with heart palpitations/jumps that are likely being caused by acid reflux.
Unfortunately recovery as been slow and frustrating. I am still experiencing them every few minutes and while this is a minor improvement from the every-60 seconds in the first few days, it's discouraging that this is hindering my lifting and as a result I am fighting getting depressed about it. Seeing continual progress in my body was so encouraging and put me on such a high; seeing myself shrink back obviously has the opposite effect. While I did lift the day before yesterday, it was a light session because of this issue.
Another frustrating component is I'm not entirely sure what is causing them. Doc is treating them "the easy way" for now with prescription level Prilosec which is what cured them 3-4 years ago when I had them then, but it's not a for sure thing unless more advanced tests are done. I am supposed to see him again for those tests if things don't improve.
Evidence, at least in my own mind, points to acid reflux as the culprit. In retrospect I was doing a lot of things wrong, particularly eating right before bed and then having a protein shake right after that. Laying flat it must have wreaked havoc on my esophogus. Worse, first thing I did in the morning is drink coffee and then continue drinking caffeine all day to keep myself awake at my desk job. On the day the issue began, a co-worker brought in a tangerine and I ate that after lunch. It's a recipe for reflux.
I am guessing I just have to wait this out unless my insides heal. But I'm getting frustrated and impatient increasingly. I'll try my best to get a light lifting session in tonight.
