I'm not an MD, but I believe the current thinking is that e-cigars are not good for you.

Check it out with your doc and see if there's anything that needs attention.

I read your other post - this is something you need to talk to your doctor about. I know its very scary to feel your heart pound in your chest when you lay down. It use to happen to me before I found out I have stage one hypertension.

As for E-cigar - you may be getting a whole bunch of nicotine - that you are absorbing very fast - faster than a regular cig - that could be causing the pounding.

Go see a doctor - never ignore your heart. Better to see a doctor and find out nothing is wrong than to wait for something wrong to happen.
