    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    morning fast heart rate

    your morning is identical to mine only it happens in the middle of the night when i turn over or move doctors do not help
    Patricia Farrell, PhD responded:
    When you say that "doctors do not help" do you mean that any meds they have suggested/tried have not resulted in relief? I think it might be helpful to try a bit of self-help and see how that might work for you.

    Please see our Tips column for the relaxation breathing video tutorial and begin to use it whenever you might need it. It may be the way to help your body respond and begin to slow down. See how it works for you.

    Patricia Farrell, PhD replied to sindysue's response:
    Your docs have coordinate their treatment and they should be advising you regarding what other evaluations or professionals should be consulted on this. Certainly, this is a matter that requires expert treatment.

    Patricia Farrell, PhD replied to sindysue's response:
    I hope things turn out well for you.
