Heart Palpatations and VMs
Okay, so I have been dealing with some heart palpatations, actually it's always been that way.

I just found out that is not normal to feel your heart beating all day!

I only found out about a week ago, I was visiting my parents and my father was checking his blood pressure, and I wanted to play with the "toy" So I did mine, my bp was pretty normal 119/80 but my pulse was 129!!! I was pretty much at rest, just sitting on the couch chatting.

I'm wearing a monitor now and will have an ultrasound of my heart within the next few weeks.

But, I'm curious is this common for vascular malformations or unrelated?

I have veno-lymphatic malformations through my entire right side. A fairly large malformation was removed 2005. I have this same problem but as I am not at the Dr typically when I have palpitations they just think it's a fluke. I absolutely think it's related.

I haven't seen you in a coon's age! Are you still in Georgia? I went back to St. Marys for a visit last summer and got LOST!

I'm going to agree ... I think they are related, but I'll be interested to hear your results. Be sure to come back and update!

Weird. I have a port wine stain covering my entire right arm and extremity and part of my back and chest. I also have heart palpitations and an irregular heartbeat that goes crazy at random moments of sudden movements. I'm taking metoprolol and I feel great. Maybe related???
