What kind of heart palpitations could possibly cause a heavy heart beat and throbbing in the back of the neck? Echo shows Ok heart structure.

What kind of heart palpitations could possibly cause a heavy heart beat and throbbing in the back of the neck?  Echo shows Ok heart structure.

Ninety nine percent of such symptoms have no implications and are to be ignored to begin with. ...Read more
