Fast Heart Beat? Slow Pulse.

Fast Heart Beat? Slow Pulse.

My heart has been beating very fast in about 15min sessions, but the rate in my chest does not match my pulse. I will have a normal pulse but feel the fast thumping in my chest. What could this be?


Hi Raekoe,

I'm not able to tell you why the heart rate you feel and your pulse are not the same, but wanted to sharewith you a post on heart palpitations you may be interested in.

What Triggers Heart Palpitations?
